Theatre to present ‘A Flea in Her Ear’

“A Flea in Her Ear,” opening Nov. 8 at the University of the Incarnate Word, will feature a performance from a longtime theatre arts professor before he retires.

   George Burnette, who serves as technical director for the Department of Theatre Arts, will “grace the stage one last time before retirement from UIW,” according to a news release.

   The play, under the direction of Mark Stringham, an assistant professor of theatre arts, is billed as “a hysterical bedroom farce full of mistaken identities, misplaced jealousies, and marital mayhem that promises an evening of unparalleled fun.”

   Professor Margaret Mitchell is in charge of costumes. Melissa Gaspar, an instructor, is in charge of scenery and lighting.

   The performances will be in Elizabeth Huth Coates Theatre.



  Performances of “A Flea in Her Ear” will be at 8 p.m. Nov. 8-9 and Nov. 15-16; 2 p.m. Nov. 10; and 7 p.m. Nov. 14.

 Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $8 for non-UIW students with ID, and $6 for groups of 10 or more.

   UIW students, faculty and staff can attend free with I.D., but may purchase a second ticket for a guest at the $8 discounted rate.

   For more information, call the Department of Theatre Arts at (210) 829-3810.
