Stetson University opens its 108th season with a children’s theatre show written by Hector Santiago. The Day They Stole All the Colors is a delightfully fun play that tells the story of a pirate, played by Ellen Smittle, and a cowboy, played by Jacob Manos, both pictured right, riding through the Universe on a comet stealing valuable riches from every planet. After leaving Earth, a young girl named Rene and her dog Canelo set out to chase the two bandits and stop them once and for all. Colors is directed by Julie Schmitt, director of the Theatre Arts Program, and will run from Thursday, Sept. 19 through Sunday, Sept. 22.
Admission for each performance is $12 for adults and $10 for senior citizens and non-Stetson students. Stetson students, faculty, and staff presenting valid I.D. will be admitted free of charge. Stetson Theatre Arts’ “Second Stage” Theatre is located in the Museum of Florida Art at 600 N. Woodland Blvd. Parking is free. Tickets will be available at the door, and can be purchased by either cash or check. Reserved tickets must be picked up 30 minutes prior to the start of each show.
