"The Acting Company endures as the major touring classical theater in the United States." The New York Times
Modesto, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
"Of Mice and Men," Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winner John Steinbeck’s tale of two drifters comes to life in a new touring production that will be performed at the Gallo Center for the Arts on Sunday, November 4 at 3 pm.
Tickets are on sale now and range from $25 to $40. Groups of 15 or more are eligible for a 15% discount. For tickets and more information, visit GalloArts.org or call (209) 338-2100.
The play is a production from New York's The Acting Company in association with an equally prestigious theatrical organization, The Guthrie. It is bound to resonate with Central Valley residents in the way that the Gallo Center and Prospect Theatre’s popular production of Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath” did last spring.
“Of Mice and Men” is one of the most widely read stories in America. Written as both a novella and a script for a play, it tells the story of two California migrant ranch workers during the Great Depression.
Lennie, a little boy in a man’s body, and his ever cautious friend, George, have delusions of making enough money to buy their own place. But as Robert Burns wrote in the poem that inspired Steinbeck’s title, “The best laid schemes of mice and men/Often go awry.”
The Gallo Center for the Arts’ 2012-13 Premier Partner is Boyett Petroleum.
