The Thanksgiving Play

This week and next the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts will be presenting a thought-provoking dinner theatre production of The Thanksgiving Play.  
In Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, The Thanksgiving Play, good intentions collide with absurd assumptions as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month. 

Schedule: Each evening, dinner is served at 6:45 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Following the show, there will be a brief panel discussion. 
Shows will be performed over two weekends from Thursday, March 31 to Saturday, April 9

Tickets: Tickets are reserved by table and must be purchased in advance. Prices include your dinner, ticket to the performance, and after-show discussion.
Student Half Table (two tickets): $20 with Experience Tech Fee
Full Table (four tickets): $120 | Half Table (two tickets): $60 for the general public
