Division of Theatre and Dance presents ‘The Arsonists’

BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University assistant professor David A. Miller, from the Division of Theatre and Dance, will direct performances of “The Arsonists,” a main stage production, at the Alvina Krause Theatre 226 Center St., Bloomsburg. The performances will run from Wednesday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 5. Showtime on Wednesday through Saturday is 7:30 p.m. with a finale on Sunday at 3 p.m.

“The Arsonists” is a new translation by Alistair Beaton of Max Frisch’s play, “The Fire Raisers.”

“Fires are becoming something of a problem, but Biedermann has it all under control. He is a respected member of the community with a loving wife and a flourishing business, so surely nothing can get to him. The great philanthropist is happy to meet his civic duty by giving shelter to two new guests, but when they start filling his attic with petrol drums, will he help them light the fuse?”

The 14 member cast includes Noah Eisengrein, Toni Carosella, Kendall Baird, Jonathan Schultz, Carly Carman, Taylor Brigade, Somer Walsh, Kyle Bower, Sorcha Smith, Brandon Ferguson, Rachel Gloss, Madeline Okuniewski, Chris Thorne, and Austyn Redwinski.

Tickets are free for BU students with student ID, $6 for adults and $4 for seniors and students. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Haas Center box office or at the door one hour before curtain time.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 9,600 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
