JBU Presents Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘Patience’
SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. (October 30, 2013) — The John Brown University Music Theatre Department presents “Patience,” a comic operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan, in the Berry Performing Arts Center, Nov. 8-10 and 15-16.
A satire of the aesthetic movement in art, “Patience” features a simple milk maid who encounters the worlds of beauty and love for the first time. Surrounded by a group of capricious young maidens obsessed with the high art of romance, “Patience” seeks to understand true love. Meanwhile, the men of a local cavalry regiment seek to understand the young women to whom they were once engaged.
Performances will be in the Berry Performing Arts Center on the JBU campus:
Friday, Nov. 8, and Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m.
