The Girl from Andros

NOVEMBER 19 & 20, 2021 | DAVIS HALL LITTLE THEATRE

Reviving an age-old story of love, mistaken identity and the ridiculous situations that arise from deception, the theatre arts department at the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma will perform “The Girl from Andros” by the Roman-African playwright Publius Terentius Afer, commonly known as Terence, on Nov. 19-20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Davis Hall Little Theatre.

Tickets will be $10 at the door. Due to COVID-19, seating is limited and reservations are encouraged by calling (405)-574-1310. Social distancing and masking will be expected at the event.

The story’s action revolves around the conflict between romantic love and family duty, as the main character wishes to marry a woman his father considers below their social class. Thanks to trickery and advice from household servants, another desperate suitor and lucky coincidence, love wins in the end. Science & Arts students will don classic “commedia dell’arte” masks for the production which combined with 1960s-style “mod” fashion will create the updated setting where carefree playboys frolic on a Mediterranean isle.
