HATTIESBURG – Hurricane
Katrina and the delay in The University of Southern Mississippi
classes has forced the Department of Theatre and Dance to adjust
its fall 2005 performance schedule.
The summer Southern Arena Theatre revival production
of The Last Night of Ballyhoo has been canceled. Lou Rackoff, chair
of the department, advises patrons who have already purchased tickets
to exchange them for another 2005-2006 season production.
The first main stage production, Scapin, will
have a full performance run but will open one week later than originally
scheduled. Performances are now slated for Oct. 13, 14, 19, 20,
21, 22 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. Again, patrons
may change purchased tickets to accommodate the new production schedule.
All other performances included in the recently
released season brochure will remain as scheduled.
For exchange or purchase of tickets, call the
Southern Miss Ticket Office at (601) 266-5418 or 800-844-8425.
