Bismarck State College Theatre is proud to announce our first production of our 2021-2022 production season: Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Dan Rogers.
"The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth." - Dramatists Play Service
COMING DECEMBER 2021:
Pride and Prejudice
by Kate Hamil, based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Emmalee Riegler
December 9th - 11th at 7:30 PM
December 12th at 2:30 PM
"This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?" - Dramatists Play Service
