Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts students are staging a production of “Rhinoceros” by Eugene Ionesco.
Show dates are Nov. 10-13. Evening shows begin at 7 p.m. Nov. 10-12, with matinee performances at 2 p.m. Nov. 12-13. All performances will be in the Black Box in the Center for Performance and Technology on the LSMSA campus.
This funny, disturbing and surreal play raises questions about conformity, morality, mob mentality and fascism, a news release said.
“What I like most about ‘Rhinoceros’ is the message that it is trying to get across to the audience,” said Charlie Roppolo, a junior from Denham Springs, who performs in the play. “It has a beautiful mix between comedy and horror that the audience will absolutely love.”
Also taking part in the production from the area are Hayden Fisher, a senior from Denham Springs; Sierra Bailey, a senior from Hammond; and Shona McCullough, a senior from Baton Rouge.
The stage crew includes Tom Matuschka, a senior from Baton Rouge; and K.C. Saxon, a junior from Livingston.
