As “The Cherry Orchard” closes, seven more shows are about to open. The theater department is continuing a miniature replica of the International Scotland Fringe Festival – at which we in the department were privileged to perform last August – called the Schuster Fringe Festival.

Fringe was created during World War II to bring the world together based on a common love for the arts. Here in Erie, we would like to do the same – show off student-written work and present community members’ involvement with famous plays.

We’ve got the complete show schedule:

“A Moment After” and “Just Missed the Rainbow” (two one-acts)
March 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. in the Schuster Theatre

“Godot Arrives”
March 6 and 7 at 8 p.m. in Waldron 219
March 16 at 8 p.m. and March 17 at 2 p.m. in the Schuster Theatre

“The Glorious Ones”
March 10 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and March 11 at 2 p.m. in the Schuster Theatre

“Agnes of God”
March 12 and 13 at 8 p.m. Zurn 101

March 13 and 14 at 8 p.m. in Waldron 219

“The Killing of Sister George”
March 15-17 at 8 p.m. at the Renaissance Center on 1001 State St.
