Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance News Release, 9-11-2015
Mankato, Minn. -- The Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance will open its 2015-16 Studio season with “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson, playing at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 16-19 in the Andreas Theatre. As part of the Studio season, the production is directed and designed by students.
“The Haunting of Hill House” is a chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and “contained ill will.” Led by the learned Dr. Montague, who is conducting research in supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess. This is its Minnesota State Mankato debut.
Individual tickets for “The Haunting of Hill House” are $10 regular; $9 for senior citizens, youth 16 and under and groups of 15 or more; and $8 for current Minnesota State Mankato students. Tickets for “The Haunting of Hill House,” as well as all other productions, will be on sale Sept. 14 at the Theatre & Dance Box Office in the lobby of the Earley Center for Performing Arts. Hours are 4-6 p.m., Monday-Friday; call 507-389-6661.
