The Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) presents “Light Up The Sky” by Moss Hart. Directed by FTT faculty member Jay Paul Skelton, the play runs in the Decio Mainstage Theatre of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. April 17 through 21 (Tuesday through Saturday), with a matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. April 22 (Sunday).
“Light Up The Sky” (1948) is the last play written by Pulitzer Prize winner Hart. This backstage tale takes a jaundiced view of the theatrical archetypes: the arrogant director, the diva leading lady, the seen-it-all-before mother and the naïve new writer. Add a Shriners’ convention and you have the recipe for a madcap evening in and about the theater. Fast-paced and full of reversals of fortune and shifts in power, this entertaining comedy is perfect for families and groups of all ages.
Tickets can be purchased online at performingarts.nd.edu or by calling the ticket office at 574-631-2800. Prices are $15 for the general public; $12 for faculty, staff and seniors; and $7 for all students.
