Note from the Director: Thanks to the entire Muncie and Delaware Country community for such an amazing turnout!! As always, the decisions were very difficult, and I’m grateful to everyone who took the time to share your talents with me!
To the cast, we’ll be in touch in a few days with our first rehearsal date, and tentative schedule.
The Christmas Truce, an original piece written by Ball State University playwriting professor Tom Horan, will be presented live on the Sursa Performance Hall stage on Friday, Dec. 15, at 8 p.m.
The radio drama, which will be broadcast live on IPR, will be directed by Jennifer Blackmer, professor of theatre and associate provost for entrepreneurial learning at Ball State. Blackmer has directed several IPR Radio Dramas, including Gift of the Magi and A Christmas Carol.
Horan is the playwright-in-residence at Phoenix Theatre in Indianapolis. His new radio drama, The Christmas Truce, will tell the story of a ceasefire on Christmas Day during World War I.
Tickets are $10 for adults and just $5 for children and will be available at Emens / Sursa Box Office, (765) 285-1539.
