NGU Theatre presents final show: Spectrum

The final show of NGU's theatre season, Spectrum: An Evening of Theatre and Autism, opens tonight (April 11) at 7:30 pm in the Billingsley Theatre. It will also run Friday and Saturday nights.

Young adults with autism from across the Upstate will take the stage in song, storytelling, and acting. They also created the scenery and will run the show backstage, out front in the lobby, and concession stand. A world premiere reading of "Wait, My Heart Still Beats" by Andrew Nelson will be presented a one act play which poignantly presents the challenges of autism and therapy.

The previously announced performance by the Hope Academy for Autism students, on this Thursday April 12, has been cancelled - there will be no performance in the Billingsley Theatre this Thursday night.

Please visit the Box Office in the School of Theatre Building for tickets if you are interested in attending Wed, Fri or Sat night of Spectrum. Tickets will also be available at the door each night for $5. For more information contact the Cultural Events Office at 864.977.7085.
