Normandale Theatre Department’s Production of Prometheus Bound runs from February 22-25

By Steven Geller - Director of Media and Public Relations

Normandale Community College Theatre Department's production of Prometheus Bound will begin on Wednesday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m.

The other dates for Prometheus Bound will be Thursday, February 23 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, February 24 at 7:30 p.m. (ASL Interpreted Show) and Saturday, February 25 at 2 and 7:30 p.m.

In the Prometheus Bound production, Prometheus is sentenced to be chained to a cliff for all eternity - a punishment for using his power as a god to bring humanity and compassion to the world. In this epic and thundering tale of wrongful imprisonment, we can begin to draw parallels between our own society and the one first dramatized on the western stages of ancient Greece. Throughout his battle between blind justice and blind hope, Prometheus struggles to teach humans how to stir the fire that rages in all of us.

Adult admission is $10, while senior/staff/student tickets will be $5. Season tickets are available for a discount. Please call 952-358-8884 to make reservations or email at boxoffice@normandale.edu

Normandale's Theatre Department will also present Noises Off during the spring semester. Noises Off runs from April 26-29 at the Premanand Fine Arts Theatre.

The following are descriptions of the remaining spring semester performance that will take place during the 2016-17 academic year:

Noises Off: With opening night just hours away, a motley crew of actors race along in a frantic, final rehearsal of the British farce Nothing On. Led by a surly, pill-popping director, this case of 'washed ups' and 'never weres' are hanging by a thread. Quickly, the action blurs into a cacophony of door slams, misplaced sardines, lost contact lenses, philandering lovers, not to mention a lethally swinging ax. An audience favorite for over thirty years, Noises Off is a thrill ride of pandemonium and craziness, and a comic tour-de-force that delivers laugh after uproarious laugh.
