“Uhuru” to hit the stage at Stockton this November

Written for The Argo by Robert Rebenski

GALLOWAY, October 9, 2021- Stockton University unveils their next theatre show titled, “Uhuru,” Wednesday-Saturday November 10-14 at the Performing Arts Center on Galloway Campus at 7 p.m. 

COVID restrictions made it impossible for live classes or performances for several semesters, however, this fall, performances can be live once again. “’Uhuru’ is a beautiful piece of art,” theatre student Katie Manhardt said. “It is a balance of comedy and realism.” 

Performances will be held in the Experimental theatre which is located under the Performing Arts Center (PAC). It will be directed by Aaron Moss, the assistant professor of theatre/directing in the school of Arts and Humanities at Stockton University. 

The production team discussed the upcoming show and why they chose it, “Because there’s highs and lows” stated Lily Jenkins, costume designer for the show, “What does it mean to belong? Many different people grapple with that question. There’s a lot of funny moments and challenges to be had.” 

The Experimental Theatre puts out one show a semester, fall and spring. Tickets can be found online now at the Stockton Performing Arts Center page or the box office opens 90 minutes before each show.

“Uhuru” will be ready for live audiences at Stockton’s PAC next month.  The Theatre Club is known for hosting a variety of theatre related avenues, from “improv to musicals” and other forms of entertainment throughout the PAC and campus.
