Georgia Southern Opera Students Perform: “Freudian Clips: A Scenes Program”
The Georgia Southern University opera department will present ‘Freudian Clips: A Scenes Program,” on Friday, Oct.12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Averitt Center for the Arts, located in downtown Statesboro.
The script, written by Arikka Gregory, Director of Georgia Southern Opera, and her husband Phil Boyum, writer for the Statesboro Herald, features dialogue between Sigmund Freud and a man who believes he is Don Giovanni, the chronic womanizer. Throughout the performance Freud analyzes Giovanni’s many mishaps, miscues, and misadventures.
‘I am very excited about this production,” said Gregory. ‘It is my first student production at Georgia Southern University, and I’ve enjoyed working with such incredibly talented students.”
The performance features seven scenes and will last approximately an hour and 30 minutes. Five of the scenes will be in foreign language; however, there will be super titles above the stage in English.
‘The intent of the super titles is to help the audience understand what is going on in the performance,” said Gregory. ‘However, the dialogue between each scene will also help them understand and promises to be very funny.”
Tickets for students are free of charge and $5 for general admission. They can be purchased at the door the night of the show. For more information on ‘Freudian Clips: A Scenes Program,” please contact the Averitt Center Box Office at (912) 212-ARTS (2787).
