Fall Plays Welcome Audiences

Shaheera Hussein, a student from Plainsboro, New Jersey, will play ex-chorus girl Billie Dawn in Born Yesterday, which begins October 21.  She is shown here performing in Anything Goes, which was produced in spring 2021 by the Rutgers–Camden theater program. 

The Rutgers University–Camden Department of Visual, Media, and Performing Arts will present two theatrical productions, Born Yesterday and Pericles, Prince of Tyre, in the fall 2021 semester. The shows will be staged in the Walter K. Gordon Theater in the Fine Arts Building, 314 Linden Street.

Tickets are $15 for general admission; $10 for seniors, alumni, and Rutgers employees; and $8 for students. Admission is free for Rutgers students with ID. Tickets can be purchased at the theater box office one hour prior to showtime, in advance at the Impact Booth in the Campus Center, or online. Attendees must wear masks at all times while in the theater.

Pericles, Prince of Tyre
By William Shakespeare

Thursday–Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday at 2:00 pm

Shakespeare’s original romance and adventure tale is full of harrowing shipwrecks, loved ones lost, and loved ones found. Through the rediscovery of the fun of storytelling, a fairy tale for our times takes shape as our hero perseveres through hardships to one of the most moving recognition scenes in all of literature.
