UAA tickets on sale

Season ticket subscriptions are on sale for the 2002/2003 University of Alaska Anchorage's theater season. The theater department will present four plays this year. The first is Christopher Marlowe's "Dr. Faustus," running Oct. 11 to 27, in which the title character sells his soul to the devil in exchange for limitless knowledge and powerful black magic but remains unfulfilled. The second is "Somewhere In Between," winner of the 2001 Edward Albee Last Frontier Playwrighting contest, by San Francisco playwright Aoise Stratford. This show runs Nov. 22 through Dec. 8 and follows the irreverent Molly Malone from the 17th century into present-day America.

"The Misanthrope," by Moliere, Feb. 14 through March 2, is a comedy about truth and honesty and a misanthrope's worst day. The final show will be "Into the Woods," by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, April 11 to 27, on the Wendy Williamson stage. The play is a seamless fusion of fairy tales about a baker and his wife who journey into the woods to lift the curse that has kept them childless.

Subscriptions cost $52 or $40 for Sunday matinees. Individual ticket prices are $17 for reserved seats, $12 general admission and $10 for students, seniors and military. Shows are at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Call the box office at 786-4TIX for subscriptions and tickets.
