Rochester University’s theatre department will present “A Wrinkle in Time,” based on the novel by Madeline L’Engle and adapted by John Glore, on various dates in November. 

One of literature’s most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back — braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, she’s joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O’Keefe and others to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1. Love CAN overcome evil, and 2. There IS such a thing as a tesseract.

Directed by Robert Arbaugh, MFA, “A Wrinkle in Time” will be performed on Nov. 14-16 and Nov. 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. with matinee performances on Nov. 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. 

All productions take place on the campus of Rochester University at 800 W. Avon Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48307 in the RAC Theatre. Tickets are $5 for students and $12 in advance ($15 at the door).
