The Shawnee State University Theater Department finishes the season with Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's musical, "The Apple Tree," that tells three stories on the effects of love at 7:30 p.m. from Wednesday, April 25 through Saturday, April 28 on the Main Stage of the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.
The first story begins with the very first love story, "The Diary of Adam and Eve," based on Mark Twain's "Eve's Diary."
The second story is Frank R. Stockton's "The Lady of the Tiger?" about a powerful young princess who loves a young man sentenced to an unusual test. Will she see him married to another or let him perish rather than suffer that indignity?
The third story is Jules Feiffer's "Passionella," a classic tale of Cinderella. Granted the gift of being beautiful and glamorous from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m., Ella can be a famous movie star. She falls in love with a young man who rejects her until she reveals her true self to him and love finally blooms.
