Oct 16, 2009
K imageOhio Northern University presents "Katrina: the K Word" in the Freed Center for the Performing Arts' Stambaugh Studio Theatre from Oct. 28-31 at 8 p.m. and on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 at 2 p.m. There will be a pre-show discussion on Oct. 28 at 7:15 p.m.

"Katrina: the K Word" is an original play inspired by the true stories of individuals who experienced one of America's most challenging crises. Both tragically heartbreaking and poignantly uplifting, "Katrina" chronicles the journeys of New Orleans residents whose lives were forever changed by Hurricane Katrina.

The script was created by Lisa Brenner and Suzanne Trauth based on interviews they conducted with New Orleans residents in 2007. The play features 12 main characters who cut across racial, gender, age and class lines. Designed as an ensemble piece, each actor in "Katrina: the K Word" plays one main role as well as several small parts.

General admission tickets are $15, senior and non-ONU student tickets are $12, children tickets are $9, and ONU student tickets are $5. They are on sale now. The Freed Center box office is open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone orders are accepted with American Express, MasterCard, VISA or Discover by calling 419-772-1900.
