Fowler Center Drama Theatre



The A-State Opera Theatre will present its spring production of "A Wake or a Wedding" on Thursday and Friday, March 9-10, at 7:30 p.m. in Fowler Center’s Drama Theatre on the Arkansas State University campus.

Opera Theatre provided this description of the production: "Everyone has secrets, right? Opera is no exception. This spring’s opera is a delightful show: a witty yet moving story about eight people in the middle of a mining town. The story takes us to Montana in 1898, where Pierpont Mackerol Davenport, a ruthless copper king, has died on the eve of his daughter’s wedding. Deception, surprises, madness, and butterflies are all revealed in a shocking and hilarious twist as all characters begin to reveal their true identities."

Tickets are available now at the A-State Box Office, (870) 972-ASU1. Prices are $10 for adults (in advance); $15 for adults (at the door); $5 students (A-State and community) and children.
