Two MSUM Theatre alumni, Kate Arness (daughter of Janet Haak, the director of MSUM’s study abroad program) and Brandon Hecker, along with actors Jacob Hartje, Amanda Leftridge, Rachel McCloud, Kimmie McLagan, Jay Nelson and Linka Wintersteen, perform Women of Clay Thursday through Saturday at Moorhead’s Heritage Garden and Amphitheater. All performances begin at 7 p.m.
Women of Clay is an ensemble work that pieces together the stories of three classic Greek females — the queen Creusa, the poet Sappho and the priestess Io — to explore their roles in society then and how they reflect women in the world today. The 50-minute play is free and open to the public, though parental discretion is advised.
Moorhead’s Heritage Garden and Amphitheater is a collaboration between the city and the Plains Art Museum. It is located at 400 Woodlawn Drive, at the southwest corner of Woodlawn Park, just under the freshly redesigned water tower. For more information, go to www.womenofclay.com.
