The DAN School of Drama and Music presents Mr. Burns, a post-electricplay by Anne Washburn. Directed by Professor Kelsey Jacobson, with Music Director Darrell Bryan, and our talented team of over 80 students. 

Mr. Burns, a post-electric playcombines The Simpsons, the apocalypse, and theatre history, questioning what stories will survive the end of the world. The play combines realism, theatricality, and high art in three separate acts that take place “tomorrow,” seven years later, and seventy-five years after a nuclear explosion has destroyed society and all electricity. It re-boots theatre history – moving from telling stories around a fire to travelling performance troupes to highly stylized music theatre. 

February 27thto March 7that the Isabel Studio Theatre of the Isabel Bader Centre for Performing Arts 


 (*A relaxed performance is a version of the show that has been slightly altered to be accessible to audience members with sensory sensitivities and disabilities. It’s important to remember that everyone is welcome at a relaxed performance, and the performance is still “the full experience," just one that accommodates and celebrates differences)

Tickets: $15 for students and seniors, $25 for general public and faculty. There will be a Pay What You Can Preview on February 26th at 8:00pm and a relaxed performance on February 29that 2:00pm. Both of these performances will be cash only.
