EVANSTON, Ill. --- This spring, Northwestern University's department of theatre and the Theatre and Interpretation Center will present their final stage and dance productions of the 2007-08 Mainstage theatre season on the Evanston campus.

The Theatre and Interpretation Center's 2007-08 Mainstage theatre season will conclude with Eric Overmyer's comedy "On The Verge" (May 23 to June 1), directed by Northwestern theatre faculty member Cindy Gold. "On the Verge" follows three Victorian women as they travel forward in time to 1950s America. Performances will take place in the Ethel M. Barber Theater, 30 Arts Circle Drive, as noted below.

The Theatre and Interpretation Center also will present the final production in its 2007-08 Studio Season. "Amadeus," by Peter Shaffer, will be directed by master of fine arts director George Cederquist. "Amadeus" is loosely based on the lives of the composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri and depicts the struggle to find faith in God when living in an Age of Reason. Performances will take place May 30 and 31 in the Hal and Martha Hyer Wallis Theater, 1949 Campus Drive, as noted below.

The Dance Program will conclude its season June 7 with the New Movement Project Dance Concert, "Move Against the Clock." Featuring choreography by Dance Ensemble participants and performed by Northwestern students, pieces range in style from ballet and hip-hop to lyrical and modern. The performance will be held in the Marjorie Ward Marshall Dance Center, Ballroom Theater, 10 Arts Circle Drive.
