  • As You Like It

    Mullen Theater will be putting on their adaptation of As you Like It. This Shakespeare classic will make you laugh and pull at your heart strings, as you follow the love story of Rosalind and Orlando. 

    Shows are Thursday, October 20th; Friday, October 21st; and Saturday, October 22nd at 7:00pm in the Rilko Event Center on Mullen's campus. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $10 for all other guests. Tickets can be purchased online HERE or at the door. 

    As You Like It is a pastoral comedy by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in 1599 and first published in the First Folio in 1623. The play's first performance is uncertain, though a performance at Wilton House in 1603 has been suggested as a possibility.

    As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques, who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches. Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.

  • You're a Good Man Charlie Brown

    When the play, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, was first staged on March 7, 1967, at Theatre 80 in New York City, there was no real script. The six young actors were armed mostly with ten songs and ten years’ worth of cartoons by “Peanuts” creator, Charles M. Schulz.

    Clark Gesner, who created the music and lyrics for the play, notes in the foreword to the Random House edition of the script that the success of the play could be largely attributed to Schulz’s “immensely human view of the world and his special ability to say it for all of us.”

    The story of the play itself is told through a series of vignettes that mimic the four-panel format used by the original cartoon strip, “Peanuts.” This panel format is supplemented with longer passages that are vaguely reminiscent of Shakespearean soliloquies and by musical interludes.

    The scope of the play is described as an average day in the life of Charlie Brown and is broken into two acts. The play moves along quickly, introducing more of the “Peanuts” gang; Patty, Schroeder, Lucy, and Snoopy. All of the characters share their observations, largely unflattering, of Charlie Brown. Lucy, for example, discusses what she terms Charlie Brown’s “Failure Face.”

    As the play progresses, the relationships of the “Peanuts” characters to one another are further expanded. To anyone who has followed the comic strip, these relationships will not provide any surprises. Included is Lucy’s infatuation with Schroeder and her perverse joy at tormenting Charlie Brown, Linus’s love of his blanket, Snoopy’s rich world of imagination, and, of course, Charlie Brown’s hopeless love-at-a-distance of the mysterious little redheaded girl.

    Join us in the Rilko Theater as our cast of eccentric Mustang take the stage of this fun-loving characters. The dates are Thursday,  April 7th, Friday the 8th, and Saturday the 9th.  The price is $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for all students.  We are doing Thursday night as a free night for Mullen Students.
