The 2012-13 Season at Hartke Theatre promises to be a special one -they are celebrating their 75th anniversary! Catholic University’s Department of Drama  was founded in 1937 by Father Gilbert V. Hartke, O.P. I really dug how they sent the flyer to the left out to Brookland community. In honor of the Anniversary Season, they are offering 75% off tickets for their first production of the season, Hedda Garbler. The show runs from October 9 – 14th. Just use the code “Celebrate” when ordering.  Here is a description of the show from CUADrama’s website: 

Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen,translated by Michael Meyer, directed by Eleanor Holdridge. Considered scandalous in its day, Henrik Ibsen’s classic Hedda Gabler examines the life of an ambitious, talented woman trapped by obligation and societal conventions in a boring and loveless marriage. One of modern theater’s most infamous protagonists, Hedda Gabler lies, cheats, schemes and steals to escape her own boredom, heedless of the consequences to those around her, until the very bitter end.

Order your tickets to Hedda Gabler here. Here are the other shows offered this Season:

  • #crazypants - A new play by Katherine Clair. Directed by Kathleen Akerley
  • Brutus (an abridged version of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar) – Directed and edited by Allison Fuentes
  • Spooky Action at a Distance – A new play by Matthew Buckley Smith and Directed by Jerry Whiddon
  • Ken Ludwig’s Shakespeare in Hollywood – Winner 2004 Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play and Directed by Jay Brock

The Season will be capped off in April with two days of performances, festivities, honors and a gala reception:  

 April 26 at 8pm – Shakespeare in Hollywood
(special performance and pre-show party)

  April 27 at 7:00 pm - 75th Anniversary Event
