Eden Prairie High School’s performance of “Thieves’ Carnival” will take to the stage on April 26 and 27 only, according to an email from the play’s director.
The play, written by Jean Anouilh, is a comedy of “love, thievery, mistaken identity and money,” wrote Rolf Olson, the director and EPHS English teacher, in an email to Eden Prairie News.
Typically, spring shows have three performances in one weekend over two weekends, Olson wrote, but “Thieves’ Carnival” will be condensed into two shows to concentrate the crowds.
“With the huge seating size in the PAC, an audience of 150-200 people feels small,” he said.
The two performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 26 and 27 in the Performing Arts Center of Eden Prairie High School at 17185 Valley View Road. Tickets are available at the box office at $7 for adults and $5 for students.
