The HSU Dept. of Theatre, Film & Dance presents a new adaptation of the magical love story from India, Shakuntala, a family-friendly holiday show in Gist Hall Theatre on the HSU campus in Arcata for two weekends: November 29-December 1, and December 6-8 at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 and Dec. 9. , from the HSU Box Office (826-3928) or at the door.

The adaptation of this Sanskrit classic is by HSU professor and playwright Margaret Thomas Kelso who describes it as a “very sweet fairy tale--with the usual ominous complications-- that everyone can enjoy, including children.”

With a premiere adaptation, original music by HSU Music professor Brian Post, and directed by HSU professor Rae Robison, this is a unique production of a popular favorite in India seldom seen anywhere in the U.S.
