Summer Studio Theatre Returns to Krannert Center
The Summer Studio Theatre returns to Krannert Center for its 19th season as a professional repertory company. Under the direction of UI Department of Theatre Head Brant Pope, the Summer Studio Theatre provides warm-weather entertainment for East-Central Illinois with a rolling repertory season of dramatic intrigue, touching humor, and madcap melodrama. Pope says that the quality of the characters found in each of the plays is the strength of this summer’s season. This year’s featured performances are The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlum, a comedic satire; the heartwarming Tuesdays with Morrie by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom, based on Albom’s book of the same title; and Doug Wright’s one-man tour de force, I Am My Own Wife. All three plays will be presented in rotation from June 5 through July 1.
