Donate Food And Enjoy The Show At UND’s Burtness Lab Theatre

The UND Department of Theatre Arts will hold a food drive in conjunction with its presentation of “Scarcity,” a modern drama about a family struggling in the welfare class, beginning today and running through Nov. 20 in the Burtness Lab Theatre.

The play by Lucy Thurber is directed by graduate student Benjamin Klipfel in partial fulfillment of his master’s degree in theatre arts.

“Scarcity” is a story of the part of American life that doesn’t often get seen,” Klipfel said. “While the play is about the dynamics of family, it is a family that is deeply concerned about survival. It is a family unsure of where its next meal will come from.”

Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for students. For reservations, please call 701-777-2587.

Because of the play’s focus, the theatre arts department will collect food donations for the Feeding America Backpack Program with the UND Nonprofit Leadership Student Association . Those who donate three food items at the box office will receive a $2 discount, which applies only to walk-up ticket sales the evening of each performance.
