Pomona College Theatre Presents "Big Love"

The Department of Theatre & Dance at Pomona College, Theatre for the Claremont Colleges, will present Charles Mee’s theatrical free-for-all Big Love. Performances will be held March 30-April 1 at 8 p.m., and April 1-2, at 2 p.m., in the Seaver Theatre (300 E. Bonita, Claremont).

Based on The Suppliants by Aeschylus, Mee updates the ancient story of 50 brides who rebel against their arranged marriages into a wild ride. The play is both a meditation on the ancient themes of justice and revenge, and a celebration of the enduring power of love. This play is NOT recommended for children under 12 due to mature language and subject matter.

Professor Betty Bernhard is directing the Pomona College production. The scenery is by Pomona Professor James P. Taylor. Costumes are by guest designer Angela Calin. Lighting design is by Pomona alum and guest designer Chrissie Munich. Sound design is by guest designer David Mickey. Scripps College junior, Paige Aarniokosky is the stage manager.

Ticket Prices are $10 general admission and $5 for seniors and Claremont Colleges faculty, staff and students. For further information, call the Pomona College Seaver Theatre Box Office at (909) 621-8525 or 607-4375. Box Office hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
