The Children's Hour
Seton Hall University’s Department of Communication and The Arts presents The Children’s Hour, opening Dec. 6, 2012 in the Theatre-in-the-Round located in the University Center. The play, the second in the 2012-2013 Seton Hall Theatre season, is student directed by Iậme Manucci under the faculty mentorship of Professor Deirdre Yates.
The Children’s Hour, written by Lillian Hellman, is a serious adult play that focuses on two women who run an all girls school. The two women are blind-sided when one malicious youngster starts an entirely unfounded scandal about them. Later it is discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but by that time irreparable damage has been done. Some of the cast includes Nicole Lippey, Shawnta Cazeau, Vlad Boscor, Nicole O’Connor, Tori Staruch, Lindsey Reams, Phalon Thornhill and Emily Yates.
Performances are at 8 p.m. on Dec. 6 - 8 and 2 p.m. on Dec. 9. Tickets can be purchased at the University Center box office at performance time. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for alumni and senior citizens and $5 for students, faculty and staff.
For over 150 years, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student mind, heart, and spirit. Seton Hall combines the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small liberal arts college. Its attractive suburban campus is only 14 miles by train, bus or car to New York City, with the wealth of employment, internship, cultural, and entertainment opportunities the city has to offer. Seton Hall is a Catholic university that embraces students of all races and religions, challenging each to better the world through integrity, compassion and a commitment to serving others.
