MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will continue the 2019-2020 Studio Season with "Nocturne" in the Andreas Theatre at the Earley Center for the Performing Arts.

A piano prodigy reeling from the death of his younger sister flees to New York City. Taking uneasy refuge in books, he reinvents himself as a writer. Across the following 15 years he tries to cope with the ramifications of the tragic accident that tore his family apart and shattered their small American dream.

This play is written as a one-person show, but the concept for this production features Michael Poleleyev in the lead role as the son, and a supporting cast of 12 actors. Third-year MFA directing candidate Trevor Belt is presenting "Nocturne" as his thesis project before he plans to graduate in the spring.

"Nocturne" runs Nov. 13-16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Andreas Theatre at the Earley Center for Performing Arts, Minnesota State University, Mankato. As with all of the Studio shows, this play is recommended for mature audiences.

Tickets are $10 regular, $9 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $8 for Minnesota State Mankato students.

The Box Office is open 4-6 p.m. weekdays in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center, or buy single tickets online at MSUTheatre.com. Call the Box Office at 507-389-6661.
