The Seagull – Experience “Tons of Love”

Hello SSU!

I’m having trouble accepting that it is officially December. Where did this semester even go? I’m sure you are working hard through these last few weeks of essays, projects, presentations and exams – keep on pushing! 

If you need a break from the stress of it all, TONIGHT is the opening night of Salem State Theatre Department’s production of The Seagull, directed by William Cunningham.

“In The Seagull, Chekhov simply asks us to focus on humanity, which is at times funny, foolish, heartbreaking, beautiful, and full of ‘tons of love.’ This love may not always be requited, but Chekhov shows us that it is always possible.”

The Seagull is running for the next two weekends in the Callan Studio Theatre, located in the basement of the Sullivan Building (North Campus, 352 Lafayette St, Salem MA, 01970), during the following dates and times: 

December 1 – 3, 7:30 pm
December 4, 2 pm
December 8 – 10, 7:30 pm
December 11, 2 pm

Box Office opens one hour before the show, and House opens half an hour before the show. Tickets are $15 general, $10 for students and seniors, and FREE for SSU students with their ClipperCard! More information can be found here. Tickets can be purchased in advance here

All of the students and faculty of Salem State Theatre have been putting in countless hours to create this beautiful production. Make sure you take the time to support live theatre!
