Creature by Heidi Schreck

The Department of Theatre and Musical Theatre presents "Creature" by Heidi Schreck. Shows will take place Jan. 20-22 at 7:30 pm each evening and 2 pm Saturday matinee in the Showcase Theatre. 

About the show:
In approximately 1401 and after being taunted by demons for more than a year and a half, Marjorie Kemp, new mother and proprietress of a highly profitable beer business is overwhelmed by her life. Suddenly she is liberated from her torment by a vision of Jesus Christ in purple robes. This vision inspires Margery to pursue sainthood with an insatiable fervor which puts her in not only spiritual but physical jeopardy. This contemporary comedy about a 15th century woman frantically seeking sainthood is about faith, mysticism, and what individuals must do to find ways to live their lives.

The Showcase Theatre is located in the University Theatre Center at 1740 Bobby K Marks Drive, Huntsville, TX 77340.

Tickets are available on the Box Office website for $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the event. SHSU students, faculty, and staff can redeem one free ticket per Sam ID. Student tickets are available on the day of the event. Restrictions may apply.
