Rhinoceros Presented by Walkerville Centre For The Creative Arts

May 9 @ 7:00 pm - May 11 @ 9:30 pm

Rhinoceros Poster

Walkerville Centre For The Creative Arts presents Rhinoceros, Eugene Ionesco’s brilliantly absurd comedy, inside the Walkerville Collegiate Institute Walkerville Auditorium on May 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, & 11, 2019.

The sublime is confused with the ridiculous in this savage commentary on the human condition, a staple of every theatre classroom and 20th century drama. A small town is besieged by one roaring citizen who becomes a rhinoceros and proceeds to trample on the social order. As more citizens are transformed into rhinoceroses, the trampling becomes overwhelming, and more and more citizens become rhinoceroses. One sane man, Berenger, remains, unable to change his form and identity.

Performances are May 3, 4, 9, 10, & 11 at 7 PM and May 5 at 2 pm.

Tickets are available at the door, $15 for adults, $10 for students.

For more information contact Jeff Marontate @ 519-252-6514 ext. 31416 or email jeff.marontate@publicboard.ca

The Walkerville Centre for the Creative A​rts was established in 1989 as a place to give students, gifted in the arts, the opportunity to work in a more intense atmosphere, with students of equal calibre and with the same interests and to learn from a staff of people with a real expertise in each area.
