From two nobodies in a small town to the stuff of folk legends, the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow has fascinated the American public for nearly a century.
This weekend, Illinois State University’s School of Theater and Dance and Wonsook Kim College of Fine Arts will be hosting multiple productions of “Bonnie and Clyde: The Musical” by Frank Wildhorn.
The show is directed by María Amenábar Farias, a third-year Master of Fine Arts directing candidate at the School of Theater and Dance.
Throughout the musical, audiences will see how the infamous duo's cravings for excitement lead them to a life of robbery and murder and eventually to their “inevitable end.”
Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Center for the Performing Arts Theatre.
Tickets will cost $15 or $10 with an ISU student ID and can be purchased online or at the box office at the Center for the Performing Arts.
