Come enjoy a night of beautiful music and brilliant drama with the Washburn University Opera Studio as they present “The Medium” by Gian Carlo Menotti.

Madame Flora lives with her daughter Monica, and Toby, a mute servant. She parades as a medium taking people’s money to perform fake séances. One night she hears a voice that is all too familiar during one of her séance’s, is it the voice of a spirit or is Madame Flora losing her mind?

The cast includes: Brianne Stewart as Madame Flora, Clare Bryan as Monica, Brett Larimore as Toby, Mary Stithem as Mrs. Gobineau, Caleb Marcus as Mr. Gobineau, and Josey Trimble as Mrs. Nolan.

The show will be at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 9 and 10 at White Concert Hall in the Garvey Fine Arts Center. General admission is $10.00, but only $8.00 for senior citizens. The show is free to Washburn students and faculty when you show your WU ID.
