The Children's Hour, by Lilian Hellman
October 9 - 13, 2013

Director's Notes

Lying is: communication with the intention of creating a false belief. We all lie everyday, whether it is to ourselves, our family, our friends, or to complete strangers. Why do we do this? People lie to protect themselves, look good, gain something or to avoid punishment. But can we measure the impact of a lie?

It is said that the playwright Lillian Helleman “understood that small-town America is America. Her country was best seen under a microscope, not viewed through a telescope.” The Children’s Hour focuses on and mixes a maladjusted student’s lie with a community’s willingness to believe it and the result is a perfect recipe for wreaking havoc in people’s lives.

Tickets:  General Admission - $5
Fontbonne Students can attend for free with valid ID

FIT, by Kim Wylie
March 5 -7, 2014 at 7 p.m.
March 8 & 9, 2014 at 2 p.m.

What if you were just turning 12 and had to wear a helmet all the time because of a medical condition? With humor and truth, this Theatre for Young Audiences play explores what it means to not “fit” in. This play is great for children 8 and older.

If you’d like to bring Fit to your school for a performance, contact djent@fontbonne.edu.


All Fontbonne performances will be held in the Fine Arts Theatre located in the Fontbonne University Fine Arts Building on the second floor.
