Iowa Wesleyan College invites the public to rediscover the magic of The Great GatsbyWritten by Theresa Rose on March 6, 2015
Iowa Wesleyan College invites the community to the always-incredible journey of live theatre. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s captivating story, The Great Gatsby, will be presented as a free performance at Iowa Wesleyan College in Mount Pleasant on Monday, March 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel Auditorium. The show is presented by the Montana Repertory Theatre Company.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s captivating story of romance and betrayal is brought to life in Simon Levy’s finely crafted adaptation for the stage.
The power of Fitzgerald’s narrative and the sheer beauty of his prose are captured in this haunting and heartfelt snapshot of the Roaring Twenties. Much more than simply a story of lost love, The Great Gatsby recreates the Jazz Age world of youth, wealth, privilege, and reckless abandon. Montana Rep is pleased to reintroduce this classic, bringing Fitzgerald’s masterpiece to a new generation of theatergoers.
Montana Repertory Theatre was established as a professional theatre-in-residence and touring company in 1968 at the University of Montana. UM is one of very few universities in the nation to house a professional touring company, and the only one that incorporates students and faculty into that company.
The free performance of The Great Gatsby is made possible by funding through the Haselmayer Endowment for the Arts at Iowa Wesleyan College. The fund brings a variety of performances, concerts and speakers to the Mount Pleasant campus every year. All are open to the public at no charge.
