2019-2020 AU Theatre Season Focuses on ‘Stories of Courage’

Throughout people’s life experiences they rely on courage to venture, persevere and withstand danger, fear or difficulty. The 2019-2020 AU Theatre season will tell three courageous stories in different styles (drama, comedy, musical) and set in varying time periods and places. Although they differ from each other in many ways, the stories and messages are timeless and universal including:

-- Arthur Miller’s dramatic adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People”
-- The storytelling magic of ABBA's timeless songs in the musical “Mamma Mia!”
-- The female version of Neil Simon's hilarious comic classic, “The Odd Couple”
