Ancient comedy gets modern makeover for Science & Arts fall theatre production

“The Girl from Andros” will be performed Nov. 19-20 at 7:30 p.m.

CHICKASHA, Okla. (Nov. 15, 2021) – The theatre arts department at the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma will give an ancient comedy a modern makeover in their fall production “The Girl from Andros” on Nov. 19-20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Davis Hall Little Theatre. 

The Roman-African playwright Terence premiered this hilarious tale of love, mistaken identity and the ridiculous situations that arise from deception in 166 BC. Rarely performed today, Science & Arts students will revive the age-old story, donning classic “commedia dell’arte” masks which, combined with 1960s-style “mod” fashion, will create the updated setting where carefree playboys frolic on a Mediterranean isle.

Tickets will be $10 at the door. Due to COVID-19, seating is limited and reservations are encouraged by calling (405)-574-1310. Social distancing and masking will be expected at the event.
