Allied Campus Theatre (LEE – ISA – STEM) will be presenting “The Cider House Rules” October 16 – 18 and October 23 – 25 at 7 p.m. in the ACT Black Box.
The play is for mature audiences and tells the tale by John Irving about an orphan who is adopted by his own orphanage and trained to deliver babies.
Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults.
The play, made famous by John Irving’s bestselling novel and Academy Award Winning Major Motion Picture, is a coming of age tale about a young man in search of a place to belong. Homer Wells, an orphan who was never adopted, learns more than he wants to about “The Lord’s Work” and “The Devil’s Work” from his mentor and father figure, Dr. Wilbur Larch. When given the opportunity to explore life outside the walls of St. Cloud’s Orphanage, Homer jumps at the chance to leave behind everything he’s known in hopes of finding love and a place to call home.
There are three remaining opportunities to catch the show beginning with tonight’s performance.
There is limited seating available. Tickets are on sale now in the black box (room 501) as well as sold before each performance.
