What Does the Future Hold?

Things around the callboard have been pretty quiet this summer. You might think we’d all taken some much needed rest after the all those amazing shows produced last season, but you’d be mistaken!

K-State Theatre has been hard on work on something special, and since we’ve given you so little this summer, we feel like you deserve something BIG this fall. Something so big, in fact, that we’ll be locking up the virtual callboard in just a few hours.

Now is the time for some reflection on all the great events of K-State Theatre’s past. Take some time this morning to browse through your favorite old callboard posts and comments. As they say, to get where you’re going, you’ve gotta know where you’ve been!

So what exactly does the future hold? We can’t give you much just yet, but we can tell you to have no fear and prepare yourself for a whole new era of awesome. Stay tuned, wildcats!

As you can see from the picture of Sir Larry on the MXTW webpage, this summer’s production targets Hamlet, but it will NOT be like any other production of Hamlet you have seen before!

There is a button on the linked page to buy tickets. Act fast, though; in just the first week over 50% of the tickets for each night have been sold! There might not be any tickets available at the door for these performances, so plan ahead!
