Announcing the Department of Classical Studies and the Core Curriculum’s annual “Aristophanes” production: Plautus’ Mostellaria (“The Haunted House”). That’s right, for the first time ever, the annual “Aristophanes” play will actually be a Roman Comedy! There will be clever slaves, foolish young men, and prostitutes with complicated backstories! They will get mixed up in hair-brained schemes involving love, lust, living large and, yes, ghosts! While his father (Professor Jeff Henderson) is out of town, a young man (Paul Slater) spends all of his money on lavish parties and women. When his father suddenly returns, it is up to the crafty slave (Sarah Weiskittel) to come up with a scheme and save the day! With utterly ridiculous cameos by our distinguished faculty (including Professors Herb Golder, Pat Johnson, Stephanie Nelson, Sasha Nikolaev, Stephen Scully, James Uden, Ann Vasaly, and Zsuzsa Varhelyi), it’s sure to be a great time! Wisecracks, cross-dressing, and pizza for all! Fish Worship Blues Band (5:30); Pizza (6:15); The Show (6:30).
