“Street Scene” takes place on the front stoop of a New York City tenement building in the summer of 1929. The characters represent a cross-section of lower-middle class immigrants as they labor to survive in America. Increasingly, it seems difficult for honest and hardworking folks to succeed in a system where big money, selfish politicians, greedy corporations and neighborhood violence rule the day.
Admission is $12 for the general public, $10 for UCM staff, faculty, and senior citizens and $7 for students. Tickets will be available in the box office, located in Wood 128 for season subscribers on Monday, April 15 and for the general public on Wednesday, April 17. The box office is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets may be reserved by calling the box office at 660-543-8811. Children under the age of 5 will not be admitted.
