Conceived and Directed by Randall Rapstine (Fine Arts Ph.D. student at Texas Tech University)

The Texas Tech University School of Theatre & Dance, housed within the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts, will present “Canterville” at 7:30 p.m. from April 29 to May 5. The show begins in the Maedgen Theatre lobby. The audience will then travel to a home in the Tech Terrace neighborhood for the remainder of the performance.


“Canterville” is a site-specific, immersive theater experience inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic comic ghost story. Set in a haunted Victorian mansion, Chase, young Virginia Otis and her family encounter centuries-old specter Sir Simon de Canterville, an arrogant ham of a ghost who leads them on a comic, yet terrifying investigation of gender, sexuality and horror. Combining physical theater, dance, music and the thrills of a haunted house, the performance will immerse audiences into a provocative, scary, beautiful and fun journey that explores the transformative power of art.


“It is an experience that combines physical storytelling and movement in a way audiences have not seen in Lubbock,” said Randall Rapstine, the director of “Canterville.” “We also have a beautifully diverse cast that works seamlessly to tell a story. The play’s ‘create your own adventure’ style stays true to the themes of the Wilde source material, and it all occurs in the home of our Canterville angel, Melissa Grimes, without whom this production would not have happened.”


There are a limited number of tickets remaining for the performance. Tickets are $15 for individuals and $5 for students with a valid student ID. There are three preview performances from April 26-28, for students with a valid Texas Tech ID. More information is available at (806) 742-3603 or on the School of Theatre & Dance website.
