Thursday Nov 2, 2017
Mainstage, Theater and Dance Building

The Macalester College Theatre and Dance Department presentsThe Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov.  This theatrical production will be the last on that stage before the building undergoes renovations in 2018. For ticket information, go to or call 651-696-6359.

The Cherry Orchard was Chekhov’s last play.  A formerly aristocratic family is mired in debt, and they must sell their estate, let their servants go, and adapt to the new twentieth century.  Chekhov wrote the play while he knew he was dying of tuberculosis, and the play is full of foreboding about change, and hope for the future.  The famous characters are nostalgic for their lost leisure and courageous as they face new ways of life.  Beth Cleary, the production’s director, chose the play because of its concentration on endings -- and beginnings.

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public

Admission: For ticket information, go to or call 651-696-6359.
