Georgia Southern to Host Performance of The Great Gatsby
Georgia Southern University will host a stage version of The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved literary classic, in its Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Tuesday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m.
Adapted by playwright Simon Levy and brought to life by the Montana Repertory Theatre, the stage offers a new, exciting and fertile ground for The Great Gatsby. The Montana Repertory Theatre reintroduces and reinvigorates this accurate, haunting and heartfelt snapshot of the Roaring ‘20s with stunning costumes and poignant performances.
“We are so incredibly excited to be closing our season with such a special show. Everyone has memories of when they first read this classic novel, and this stage production brings it to life the way no other medium could,” said Stacie McDaniel, house manager and administrative coordinator for the PAC. “The colors and the vibrancy of the set and costumes make the performances pop as we are led through a glitzy and glamorous snapshot of the jazz era. And The Montana Repertory Theatre has such a stellar reputation for making great theatre – I just can’t wait to watch this one.”
Tickets are $25 for patrons, $22 for Georgia Southern faculty and staff, and $10 for Georgia Southern students. A special discounted rate of $12 will be offered to students and teachers from local high schools or middle schools. To purchase tickets, contact the PAC Box Office at (912) 478-7999 or visit GeorgiaSouthern.edu/pac.
