Every semester Premiere Stages puts on outstanding plays and this semester is no different.

During the summer, Premiere Stages put on two amazing plays, and the two plays the be performed this fall semester, Las Cruces and Liberty Live: My Lord, What a Night will be no different.

Las Cruces is written by Vincent Delaney and directed by John J. Wooten. It follows the story of a man named Sheridan who camps out in a trailer in the desert of New Mexico not too far from the casinos and spaceport. Anyone who knows him doesn’t know why he lives there or what he does, except for card player Soledad. So what does he do?

Las Cruces will run from Thursday, September 1, 2016 through Sunday, September 18, 2016. Below are the dates and times for each show:

  • Thursday (September 1, 8, 15), Friday (September 2, 9, 16) and Saturday (September 3, 10, 17) at 8 p.m.
  • Saturday (September 3, 10, 17) and Sunday (September 4, 11, 18) at 3 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 for Kean University students with a valid student ID, $20 for seniors and $30 for standard tickets.

Liberty Live: My Lord, What a Night, based on actual events, is about the well-known singer of the 1900’s Marian Anderson who spent some time at Albert Einstein’s home in Princeton, New Jersey. Anderson is known for singing “He’s Got the Whole World.” The play speaks of how this event affects the Princeton community, dividing it into two but eventually coming together to create a strong bond between two prominent figures in history.

Liberty Live: My Lord, What a Night will play at the Carriage House on the Liberty Hall Property, which is located across campus on Morris Avenue. The play will run on the following days and times: Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.; Friday, October 14, 2016 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.; and Sunday, October 16, 2016 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $15.
