    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    In the wake of an electric grid disaster eight strangers struggle for survival in an America without power. Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns combines nuclear catastrophe, The Simpsons, and the myth making impulse to reinvent contemporary theatre. The play travels more than 80 years into the future as characters journey from entertaining themselves around a fire recounting a half remembered episode of The Simpsons to by the final act performing a post electric musical. The show questions what it means to be human, how we survive tragedy, and why we make art. Tickets: $15 adults, $10 seniors and $7.50 students/youth.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
