The Descent Lifted Me Program CoverApril 9, 2015 (Jackson) - Belhaven Theatre Department's The Descent/Lifted Me will premiere April 15 in the Blackbox Theatre. Associate Professor of Theatre Joseph Frost and cast members explored the genre of devised theatre and created the play during rehearsals. Interwoven story lines will explore descensions, ascensions and resurrections.

“It's fascinating to watch how the performers and the director have woven together a disparate set of stories into a cohesive narrative of despair and redemption,” said Dr. Elizabeth Sartwell, Chair of Theatre Department. “The production offers a series of short stories told in a variety of visual and aural ways. There is something that is bound to speak to each member of the audience and they will see the journeys that they themselves have taken and continue to take.”

Show times include:

Wednesday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Thursday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m.

Friday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, April 18 for a 2 p.m. matinee and at 7:30 p.m.

General admission is $10 and $5 for seniors and students. Admission is free for Belhaven students as well as Belhaven faculty, staff and their immediate families.
