Poetry and drama under the stars of the Planetarium April 16 and 18


An inside look at the Illinois State University Planetarium.

An evening of poetry and drama will be performed under the Planetarium stars from 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 14; Thursday, April 16; and Saturday, April 18, at the Illinois State University Planetarium. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

The performance weaves a message that the greatest danger to our future is apathy and includes the short film First Date, written by Daniel Esquiel and a new play called Mass by David Ian Lee. The play will be produced as a staged reading under the stars. There will also be a poetry reading called Playing with Fire: Game. Set. Match.

The shows are produced by the School of Theater and Dance’s RSO FREESTAGE. For more information, call the Planetarium’s Skyline at 438-5007 or visit the Planetarium website.
