A recent production of the Greek tragedy “Oedipus Rex,” performed by the Penn State Harrisburg Capital Players Theatre Club, incorporated technologically forward staging and design elements different than anything seen before from Penn State Harrisburg students.
Oedipus Rex has been performed since 429 BC, and one of the challenges identified by the crew was making a text that seems “other worldly at times” take on a fresh, modern atmosphere while remaining true to its ancient Greek traditions.
Penn State Harrisburg will present a performance of “Millie D’s Bar & Grill” at noon on Jan. 20 and 21, in the Mukund S. Kulkarni Theatre in the Student Enrichment Center (SEC) on campus. The performance is free and open to the public.
