    On October 18, the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern University will be transformed into a magical arena of comedy, clowning, music, and fun when Georgia Southern Theatre and Performance presents King Stag.  This heartwarming and family friendly play takes the audience on an emotional rollercoaster as they try to answer the question “Can love conquer all?”  
    Written in 1762 by Carlo Gozzi, King Stag was translated into English during the early 20th century by Carl Wildman.  The GSU production puts a comedic clowning spin on the timeless fairy tale, promising something for spectators of all ages.  Designed as a vaudeville-type show, it will include puppetry, special effects, music, clowns, heroes and villains.  
    “It’s about seeing what’s on the inside,” says Director Stephanie Routman, “not what’s on the outside.”
    The performances will be held nightly from Oct. 18 until Oct.  21 at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $4 for GSU students with ID, $8 for GSU faculty, staff, and seniors, and $12 general admission.  For more information, or to reserve tickets, please contact the Performing Arts Center box office at (912) 486-7999.
