From Nov. 3-13, the stage will be set for possibilities and promises as NU Theatre presents Stage Door by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber.

Directed by Amanda Lytle Sharpe, adjunct professor of speech for the actor, Stage Door is a legitimate valentine to the theatre, paying tribute to those who experience the glories and heartbreaks of the profession. Illuminating the ever-present tension between theatre and film, as well as the show business power structures built on sex and gender roles, Stage Dooroffers a fresh perspective on the future by showing us our past.

Stage Door will be on stage in the Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, at 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 and 10, and at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 4, 5, 11 and 12, with 2 p.m. matinees on Nov. 5, 6, 12 and 13.

Costume, hair and makeup design is by Maureen T. Stevens, associate professor/costume, hair and makeup designer. Light design is by theatre design/production major Tristan Hils and sound coordination is by adjunct faculty member Glenn Bernardis. Stage manager is theatre design/production major Jordan Grimble of Albion, N.Y.
