“War Horse” — Sunday at 6:30 @ the IU Cinema

7th & Jordan

The Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance is proud to co-sponsor the encore broadcast of the National Theatre production of War Horse  this coming Sunday, March 23, at the IU Cinema.

Tickets are but $12 for students and $15 for the public.

Note: this is not the 2011 film by Steven Spielberg but the award-winning stage adaptation of the novel, on the boards in London since 2007. The New York production (produced by this year’s Collins Lecturer, Harriet Newman Leve) took home six Tony awards, including Best Play and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.

Tickets are still available. This will be a chance to see a breath-taking production. Don’t pass it by.
