Manchester University Theater presents ‘The Shape of Things’ 

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. – Manchester University invites the community to enjoy a “boy meets girl” production written by Neil LaBute.

Performances will be in Wampler Auditorium at the North Manchester campus at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18-19 and 2 p.m. Nov. 20.

General admission for the performance is $8. It is free for MU students.

This contemporary love story is set on the campus of a small Midwestern college and ultimately asks the questions, “What is art?” and “How far is too far in the name of artistic expression?'”

This performance will feature MU students Clayton Marcum, Kenzie Hare, Stratton Smith and Emily Lynn. Directed by Kira Lace Hawkins with artistic help from students Nolan McBride,, MacKenzie Weadick, Allyson Fogarty and James Papalia.
