Marywood University’s music, theatre, and dance department announces its fall production, “The Sonnet Project,” a piece of innovative theatre developed for our COVID-19 times. The performances will take place outside of the Marian Chapel, at the Swartz Center for Spiritual Life, on the University’s campus on Friday, October 2, at 5:30 p.m.; Saturday, October 3, at 2 and 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, October 4, at 2 p.m. Admission is free and audiences will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.

Using their bodies and voices, music, and the beauty of the outdoors, Marywood’s ensemble of students will present, illuminate, and help the audience experience a group of Shakespeare’s sonnets, including both some of his most well-known and beloved, and some less-known and surprising choices. Performers will be physically distanced from one another, as well as from the audience, at all times. Audience members are asked to bring a chair or blanket for seating, to wear a mask, and should plan on sitting in a physically distanced fashion.

For additional information about Marywood University’s fall production of “The Sonnet Project,” please contact Timothy Pyles, M.F.A., Ph.D., director of theatre, at tpyles@marywood.edu, or call the music, theatre, and dance department at Marywood University, at (570) 348-6268.
