“We are excited to have a wide variety of artists and mediums showcased in the Danville Arts Council Gallery,” says Tom Seay, Gallery Coordinator. “The Theatrical World of Everybody is a unique, backstage look at the creative process that takes place before the audience experiences the play.”
In the play Everybody, the audience travels with the character Everybody (chosen from among the cast by lottery at each performance) as they journey through life’s greatest mystery—dying. This modern, humor‐ and heart‐filled take on the fifteenth‐century morality play Everyman which features characters such as Love, Death, and Friendship, was a finalist for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2018.The play deals with mature themes and includes mature language.
The BU Players production of Everybody runs from Wednesday, February 26 through Sunday, March 1 at the Alvina Krause Theatre in Bloomsburg, PA. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3:00pm. Tickets are Free for BU Students/CGA Activities Card Holders, $6 for adults, $4 dollars for students/seniors.
