Contact: Tonya Lowentritt
HAMMOND John Steinbeck’s classic “Of Mice and Men” will be staged at Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts for one performance only on February 25.
Presented by the National Players Tour 63, the production is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the downtown Hammond theatre.
“Celebrated for their unique and innovative theatrical productions, the National Players present this tragic and endearing story, which follows the mismatched friendship of two displaced migrant ranch workers in depression-era California George Milton, a small man with big dreams, and Lennie Small, a large but simple man,” said C. Roy Blackwood, interim director of Columbia Theatre. “When George’s dreams seem within reach, his compassion is tested through Lennie’s mistakes, and the two discover what makes true men and true friends.”
Now celebrating its 63rd anniversary season, National Players has earned a distinctive place in American theatre by bringing innovative and accessible productions to audiences across the country.
Tickets range from $30 - $36 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office on Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. 4 p.m. or by phone at (985) 543-4371. Patrons may also get tickets online at www.columbiatheatre.org.
