South Texas College Theatre Presents “The Illusion”

The South Texas College (STC) Theatre will present Tony Kushner’s “The Illusion” freely adapted from Pierre Corneille’s “L’Illusion Comique” starting on Feb. 22.

Pridamant, a proud but aging desperate father, journeys to the cave of the wizard Alcandre, seeking information on the whereabouts of his runaway son. Alcandre grants Pridamant’s wish but the reality is more complex than fantasy. Through illusions, we explore and relate to themes of love, humor, betrayal, and death.

The production will run from Feb. 22-24 at 8 p.m. and will include a matinee at 2 p.m. on Feb. 25. Performances will take place at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts Main Stage Theatre at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.

General admission tickets cost $10. Tickets for students, faculty, military, and senior citizens are $5. Ticket sales from the Feb. 22 production will go to the Dr. John F. Carroll Drama Scholarship. Feb. 25 matinee production will be interpreted in American Sign Language.

 Ticket cash purchases can be purchased one hour before the performance at the box office, or in advance online using a credit or debit card at
