Blinn-Bryan theatre makes mid-season change

“Boy Gets Girl” will run February 16-19 on College’s Bryan campus

January 13, 2017

The Blinn College – Bryan Campus Theatre Arts Program is making a mid-season modification to its 2016-17 lineup, replacing “Water by the Spoonful” with Rebecca Gilman’s suspenseful drama “Boy Gets Girl.”

A Texas Community College Speech and Theatre Association (TCCSTA) Play Festival entry, “Boy Gets Girl” is an unsettling chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer. The play uses the woman’s story to examine stalking, sexism, and the idea of romantic pursuit.

Blinn College – Bryan Campus Theatre Director Greg Wise said the replacement was chosen in line with the 2016-17 season’s theme of showcasing notable female playwrights. Rebecca Gilman has received numerous accolades for her work, including the Harper Lee Award, Evening Standard Theatre Award, and Theatre Masters Visionary Award.

“I’m excited ‘Boy Gets Girl’ stays within our season’s goal of celebrating women’s voices in theater,” Wise said.

Blinn will present “Boy Gets Girl” at 7:30 p.m. February 16-18 and 2 p.m. Sunday, February 19, in Bryan Campus Student Center Room F-120. Performances are $5 for students and $10 for the general public. Seating is first-come, first-served. Tickets can be purchased at www.blinn.edu/vpa/bryan-schedule.html. For questions regarding ticket reservations, contact the Box Office at 979-209-8100. Tickets also will be available at the door.

Blinn’s Theatre Arts Program hosts a variety of performances each year on its Bryan and Brenham campuses, and offers a quality educational foundation through study, application and experience. The Theatre Arts Program is part of Blinn’s Division of Visual/Performing Arts & Kinesiology, which offers courses and hands-on learning opportunities in architecture, arts, communication studies, kinesiology, music and theatre.
