Immaculata University’s Cue and Curtain Players Perform “The Martian Chronicles” in Fall Production

The Cue and Curtain Players, Immaculata University´s drama group, will be presenting a production of Ray Bradbury´s play The Martian Chronicles. Performances will be located in the Alumnae Hall Theater on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 16, 17, and 18 at, 8:00 p.m., and on Sunday, November 19, at 2:00 p.m. A special performance for junior and senior high school students will take place on Friday, November 17, at 10:00 a.m. The players will perform under the direction of Sister Marcille McEntee, IHM. This is Sister Marcille´s third production since taking charge of Cue and Curtain last year.
The Martian Chronicles based on the 1940’s Ray Bradbury book “chronicles” Earth’s three attempts to colonize Mars, destroying it and itself in the process. A thoughtful tale of the need for acceptance of differences, the effects of economic aggression and the fallacies of cultural assumptions, The Martian Chronicles is one of Bradbury’s best efforts to encourage peoples to embrace and to strive to understand the past because "history does repeat itself."
