UNO Theatre Presents Hippie Doctor by Dr. Benjamin Graber
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Theatre presents the premiere of Dr. Benjamin Graber’s Hippie Doctor directed by D. Scott Glasser.
Previews run Oct. 7 and 8 with performances on Oct. 9 and 10 and 14 through 17 in the UNO Theatre, inside the Weber Fine Arts Building on the UNO campus. The house opens at 7 p.m. with a 7:30 p.m. curtain for all performances. There will be a talkback session held in the theatre after the Oct. 16 production.
Dr. Benjamin Graber, a graduate student in UNO’s theatre program, leads audiences through a journey into the heart of the 1960s. This semi-autobiographical tale reveals one young intern’s struggle with the adversity of the era, issues of identity and the temptations of free love. Already expected to be “this month’s most intriguing opening” by The Reader’s Warren Francke, Hippie Doctor promises audiences a one-way ticket to America’s psychedelic past.
The box office opens Monday, Sept. 28. UNO’s box office is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building. Ticket prices are $15 for general admission, $10 for seniors and free for all UNO students who present a valid UNO ID.
Tickets are $5 for any non-UNO student who presents a valid school ID. Students must make reservations beforehand. Tickets can be reserved by calling (402) 554-PLAY. This play contains adult language and subject matter.
