Skidmore's Department of Theater will present Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, adapted by Sarah Ruhl, as its spring Black Box production.

In Ruhl’s whimsical adaptation of the novel, we are invited to take a journey of self-discovery as Orlando lives as a duke, a duchess, a lover, an ambassador, a wife, and a poet. This play lovingly asks us to embrace who we are at any moment, and challenges us to imagine who we may become next.

This production is directed by students Jeremy Ohringer ’13 and Kathryn Rickman ’13. Performances are scheduled March 1-6 in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater. Curtain time is 8 p.m., with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Seating is very limited, so reservations are a must. Call the Skidmore Theater Box Office at (518) 580-5439 or email boxoffice@skidmore.edu. Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens. For group sales, contact Kathy Mendenhall at (518) 580-5431 or kmendenh@skidmore.edu.
