Those looking for a night of laughter should check out the Alfred State Drama Club’s upcoming production of “Is He Dead?”, a comedy by Mark Twain as adapted by David Ives.
The play, which centers on the art scene in France in the mid-1800s, is guaranteed to make audiences laugh out loud, according to stage manager Sam Orlando, a nursing major from Spencerport.
“Everyone knows an artist is more well-known once they’re dead,” she said, “so how far will one painter go to make himself and his family rich? Come find out at this hilarious show. There will be art, song, death, love, scandal, and even a touch of cross dressing.”
Opening night is Wednesday, March 29 at 7p.m., with a reception to follow. Tickets are $2 for students and $5 for general admission, and can be purchased at the door.
Dinner theater performances will take place Thursday, March 30 through Saturday, April 1. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. with a cash bar, and the show begins at 7p.m. All performances will take place at The Lake Lodge, 6107 Terbury Road, Alfred.
