'Love of a Pig' at YSU
YOUNGSTOWN -- Blackbox Productions at Youngstown State University will open its season with the comedy, "Love of a Pig" by Leslie Caveny. The play will open Thursday at Spotlight Arena in Bliss Hall on the YSU campus.
"Love of a Pig" is about a young female violinist (played by Stephanie Ottey of Beaver Falls, Pa.) who is pleased with her life -- except when it comes to men. It chronicles her pursuit of a brooding bass player (Tony Genovese of West Middlesex, Pa.) that she mistakenly assumes is "Mr. Right."
Richard H. Bell of Austintown is the director.
Curtain times are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sept. 10. There will also be an 11 p.m. performance Saturday.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for YSU students, faculty and staff and senior citizens. Parking is available in the Wick Avenue parking deck for a nominal fee. For more information, contact the University Theater Box Office at (330) 941-3105.
