Oedipus the King by Sophocles is the story of a man who rose to the greatest of heights, only to see a mistake result in his downfall. Oedipus, the ultimate politician, problem-solver, and hero, falls from grace when his tragic error is revealed in what is still, after 2,500 years, a stunning piece of theatre. PSU’s Oedipus the King is part of the Greek Project, produced in conjunction with UNH and Keene State. Keene will perform Antigone at PSU on 3/8 and UNH will perform Oedipus at Colonus at PSU on 3/9.

Special ticket price of $23 for one performance of each Greek play.

fiddler

Fiddler on the Roof, based on Tevye and his Daughters and Other Tales by Sholem Aleichem, with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and book by Joseph Stein, is set in the troubled times of Imperial Russia in 1905.  The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his many attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family’s lives.  He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one’s choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith – and with the edict of the Tsar who evicts the Jews from their village.  A heartwarming story, full of beloved music, and a wonderful cast of characters, including the iconic Tevye, Fiddler on the Roof is a family musical tradition that is a timeless treat.
