EXPLiCIT: Major Barbara
The Caltech Players present George Bernard Shaw's classic comedy Major Barbara for two weekends starting Friday, August 8, in Dabney Lounge.
Is Barbara Undershaft an aristocrat? A reformer? An evangelist? A rebel? It may be 1905, but Major Barbara is all that and more. Shaw's ground-breaking heroine uses her wit, her will, and her sharp sense of humor to battle hypocrites, fools, conventional thinking, and the entire military-industrial complex in this comedic masterpiece.
Directed by Caltech alum Todd Brun, Major Barbara stars Giulia Pellegrino (daughter of Professor Sergio Pellegrino), K. Zachary Abbott (Professor Smith in The PhD Movie), and a cast of students, staff, JPLers, and local community talent.
Special Parking Note: Due to a large public event on campus, the parking lots around Beckman Auditorium will likely be full. Guests attending <em>Major Barbara</em> tonight may wish to park on South Wilson Avenue, along California Boulevard, or in the parking lot near the tennis courts on California. Maps and parking information are available at www.caltech.edu/maps.
Performances run Friday through Sunday, August 8-10 and August 15-17; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sunday matinees at 2 pm, in Dabney Lounge.
