Play ‘Knight of the Burning Pestle’ at Idaho State University Feb. 8-9, 14-16

Posted January 31, 2013

The theatrical performance "Knight of the Burning Pestle" will be presented by the Idaho State University School of Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16.

The show will be presented in the Rogers Black Box Theatre in the Stephens Performing Arts Center.

The play is being performed on the 400th anniversary of its first major production.

"The resulting pastiche seems very contemporary and fresh. This production will be unlike any Elizabethan/Jacobean play you've ever seen," said Michael Helman, the business and production manager at ISU School of Performing Arts.

Francis Beaumont, a contemporary of Shakespeare, wrote the play. This play is rated PG – 13 and contains suggestive language and innuendo of the time period.

Tickets prices are $15 for adults; $14 for faculty, staff and seniors; $10 for children under 18; $7 for ISU students with valid identity; and $10 for groups with more than 10.

Tickets are available at the Performing Arts Center Box Office in person or by phone at 208-282-3595, Vickers Western stores in Pocatello and Idaho Falls, Pond Student Union Information Desk or online at www.isu.edu/tickets. For additional information contact Michael Helman at 208-282-6452 or helmmic2@isu.edu.
