Marywood University’s Music, Theatre, and Dance Department to Present Its Spring Production of Sunday in the Park with George


SCRANTON, PA (February 19, 2018)—Marywood University’s music, theatre, and dance department will present its spring production of Sunday in the Park with George on Friday, March 2, and Saturday, March 3, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., in the Sette LaVerghetta Center for Performing Arts at the University.


Sunday in the Park with George is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. The French pointillist painter, Georges Seurat, inspired the storyline, which occurs in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Consumed by his need for creative fulfillment to take precedence over personal happiness (Finishing the Hat), Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover, Dot, not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.


Ticket prices are $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens, $6 for students, and free for IHM Sisters or those with a valid Marywood ID. Credit card purchases can be made by visiting Cash or check purchases can be made at the box office the evening of the performance.
