Conservatory Theatre Company closes season with DARK OF THE MOON, 4/13-22


Point Park University's Conservatory Theatre Company will close its season with Dark of the Moon, by HoWard Richardson and William Berney, April 13 – 22, 2012 at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. A preview performance is open to the public on April 12.  Jack Allison directs; original music is by Michael McKelvey. 

In the mysticAl Hills and hollow of the backwoods, a witch boy, John, falls in love with the beautiful mortal, Barbara. He longs to be human and spend his life with her, so he makes a pact that will threaten their love and their very lives. Their extremely different worlds - the supernatural existence known by Jack and the god-fearing mountain folk who surround Barbara - clash in a dramatic, powerful way, making Dark of the Moon one of the most haunting, tragic tales ever to grace The Playhouse stage, press notes state.

Scenic design is by Rich Preffer; costume design is by Michael Montgomery; lighting design is by Scott Nelson; and sound design is by StEve Shapiro.
