Performance ON STAGE at the Schomp Theatre
Gallery in the Schomp Commons Area

This production of Lucy Alibar’s play JUICY AND DELICIOUS has been designed by the Stagecraft and Design Majors of DSA. Ms. Alibar’s play was later adapted to the award winning movie, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. Based on Ms. Alibar’s own experience dealing with the declining health of her father, the play is told from the viewpoint of a young girl named Hushpuppy learning of his father’s illness. This intimate production will be performed ON STAGE at the Schomp Theatre with only 70 seats available each night. Purchase early to guarantee availability.

Stagecraft and Design Seniors are also preparing visual pieces for the Gallery which also speak to the theme of UNHEARD VOICES. Not to be missed. For people who have purchased gallery tickets, the Stagecraft and Design Gallery will be open from 6:00-9:00 on Thursday, January 18, Friday, January 19, and Saturday, January 20. It will also be open from 11:00-2:00 on Saturday during the matinee performance of Juicy and Delicious.
