COLLEGEVILLE PA – “The Elephant Man,” a play by Bernard Pomerance, will be presented March 24-27 nightly at 7:30 in the Black Box Studio Theater of the Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center at Ursinus College, Main Street, Collegeville PA. The performance will be directed by Ursinus associate professor of theater Domenick Scudera.

“The Elephant Man” is the true story of John Merrick, a man whose body was monstrously deformed, hiding his sensitive and intelligent soul from most of the world. A memoir titled “The Elephant Man and Other Reminiscences,” written by Merrick’s physician, Sir Frederick Treves, was the inspiration for the play. It received the Tony Award for Best Play in 1979, when it was first produced.

General admission tickets are $5; $2 for students and senior citizens. For more information or reservations, call the Kaleidoscope Box Office at 610-409-3795.
