The fall play that the theatre department has chosen this year is a comedy called Arms and the Man. Head down to the auditorium on Friday or Saturday at 4 p.m. or 7 p.m. to see it.

The theatre department has been working hard to get this play perfect. “I was at crew everyday till 6,” Beth Keegan, assistant scenic designer, said. “I helped design furniture pieces and make construction drawings so people knew how to build things…it’s a huge set.” They started working on Arms and the Man immediately after Bad Jews was taken down – almost two months ago.

Arms and the Man is set in 1885, during the Serbo-Bulgarian war. It opens to a young woman being told that there will be fighting in the streets soon. Unfortunately, the young woman’s window doesn’t lock, and one night, a tired enemy soldier climbs through her window. What happens next? I’ll let the actors tell it.
