SCVST Box Office Opens June 5

MAY 25, 2007--The St. Croix Valley Summer Theatre box office in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building on the University of Wisconsin-River Falls campus opens Tuesday, June 5, for telephone and walk-up sales of 2007 season and individual tickets.

Nearly 70 talented actors, designers and technicians from Minneapolis to Spring Valley, Wis., and from Dresser to Prescott begin rehearsals June 4 for three summer stage productions.

Highlighting the season is "Disney's High School Musical," the stage production based on the wildly popular Disney Channel film. A cast of nearly 40 young people sing all the music from the original movie and several additional songs. The 10 performances run July 31, Aug. 1 - 4 and 8 - 11, at 7:30 p.m.; and Aug. 5 at 1:30 p.m.

Opening the 2007 season is "The Last Night of Ballyhoo" by Alfred Uhry, the award-winning author of Driving Miss Daisy. The production is a romantic comedy-drama set in Atlanta, 1939, on the same night "Gone With The Wind" premieres in the city. Performances are June 26-30 at 7:30 p.m. and July 1 at 1:30 p.m.

The delightful, old-time musical "Radio Gals" is a family show about makeshift radio station WGAL and its "all-woman orchestra," which broadcasts from a small Arkansas town in the late 1920s. The problem is they don't have a license and the government tries to shut them down. Performances run July 10- 12, 14, 18-21 at 7:30 p.m., and July 15 at 1:30 p.m.

Located in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building, 420 Cascade Ave., at UW-River Falls, the SCVST box office hours are: Tuesday, June 5 - Friday, June 8, 9 a.m. - noon; and June 11 - Aug. 10, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday - Friday. The box office is also open one hour before all performances and during intermission.

Individual ticket prices range from $10 to $16, with special discounts for matinee and season ticket packages.

For ticket information, telephone the SCVST box office at: 715-425-3114 or 800-228-5423. For 2007 SCVST season information, telephone 715-425-3971, email: scvst@uwrf.edu , or online at www.uwrf.edu/scvst
