  • Junior Daryl Hollonquest, Intermission, a comedy by Daniel Meltzer
  • Junior India Van Camp, with her own adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Cask of Amontillado
  • Senior Ross Percell, Moonlight and Magnolias, a comedy by Ron Hutchinson

The action will take place in the intimate Studio Theatre, lower level of Esch Hall. After a free preview at 8 p.m. Thursday, performances are set for 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday and Dec. 5-7. Admission for the general public is $12, or $10 for seniors, groups and non-UIndy students with ID. Admission is free for UIndy students, faculty and staff.
