Nebraska Repertory Theatre   ABIGAIL/1702

The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, the state’s only regional professional theatre, associated with the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, launches its first year-round season September 30, 2017 with ABIGAIL/1702 by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

October 11, 12, 13 at 7:30 pm and October 8, 15 at 2:00 pm in the Lied Center’s Johnny Carson Theater. Tickets are available through the Lied Center Ticket Office at 301 North 12th Street, 402-472-4747 or 800-432-3231 Monday through Friday from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm, or online at http://www.liedcenter.org. A five-show season ticket is $120, $60 for students and member of OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute). Individual tickets for ABIGAIL/1702 are $30, $15 for students and OLLI members.

The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, affiliated with the Actors’ Equity Association, has been on hiatus since its final summer season in 2014. A new collaboration between the Nebraska Repertory Theatre and the Lied Center for Performing Arts, and a merger of the Nebraska Rep and University Theatre begins with ABIGAIL/1702. According to Park, “Nebraska Rep is thrilled to kick-off our 49th year with a bold new vision. For decades, we’ve served Lincoln as a professional summer repertory theatre. We are pleased to announce that we are now a year-round theatre. The theme of our season this year is Classics Reimagined. Not only are we reimagining Nebraska Repertory Theatre and expanding our season, but all of our shows this year tell familiar stories in a new way.”

ABIGAIL/1702     Ten years after The Crucible’s infamous seductress, Abigail Williams, danced with the devil in Salem, darkness returns. As she cares for a young sailor on the brink of death, a mysterious stranger from Abigail’s past catches up with her, sending her on one final, suspense-filled quest for redemption.

Park explains the background of the play: “Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, is a fictionalized account of the Salem Witch Trials that occurred in 1692. The play takes aim at the hysteria that swept colonial Salem, Massachusetts and caused twenty innocent victims to hang as witches.”

At the beginning of Miller’s play, Reverend Parris catches his niece, Abigail Williams, and several of her friends dancing in the woods. Fearing severe punishment, the girls pretend to be possessed by friends, family members and neighbors.

Park continues, “Abigail Williams is a cunning manipulator. She easily whips the other girls into an emotional frenzy…One man, John Proctor, knows that [she] is lying…Worried for his friends and neighbors, John threatens to reveal his infidelity with Abigail to the court if necessary to stop her…Eventually, Abigail stands by as even John is accused. Unable to watch John Proctor hang, Abigail steals Reverend Parris’ life savings and flees from Salem. ABIGAIL/1702 begins 10 years after John Proctor and 19 others were falsely accused, sentenced and hung for witchcraft.”

Nov 10 – Nebraska Statewide Arboretum : Gardens Transformed

11/10/2017 – 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm – Lincoln, NE

Join the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum for a night with Sandra Youssef Clinton for a journey through “Gardens Transformed”. Learn about the many landscapes Sandra has designed over the year, with a keen eye to plants and ecology and get inspiration for your own place! The lecture will be followed by a dessert reception. What gardener is not looking for the element of the unexpected…the “WOW” factor in their garden? Many gardeners fall short in transforming their vision into a lush and imaginative reality. How can we create extraordinary outdoor living spaces and gardens that invite us in? How can we achieve four-season experiences of our own? What choices do we make to create a garden where there is always something of interest taking front stage? Where do the inside and outside meet? How do we create gardens for all creatures to enjoy? Sandra Clinton’s painterly approach, extensive plant knowledge, and keen eye for proportion and spatial design combine in exuberant gardens that highlight the seasonal rhythms of the landscape and nature. With an understanding of the history of garden design, an astute observation of natural landscapes, and inspirations from extensive world travels, Sandy will share dramatic examples of gardens she has designed with her firm, Clinton & Associates.
