Ashland University Announces 2014-2015 Theatre Season

Ashland University Theatre announces its 2014-2015 season, which showcases four very different productions that seem to be conveniently tied together in the traditional English bridal rhyme of four "Somethings" for good luck.

Like the rhyme, the season begins with "Something Old" with George Bernard Shaw's classic masterpiece "Saint Joan" then jumps to "Something New" with the World Premiere of Lindsay Joy's "In the Event of My Death" in collaboration with New York's Farm Theater. In the spring, the season continues with "Something Borrowed" from the silver screen with Frank Baum's beloved musical "The Wizard of Oz," and concludes with John Guare's award-winning black comedy "The House of Blue Leaves" as "Something Blue."
