Buried Child by Sam Shepard is the first theatrical event
for Kent State University at Stark's 2012-2013 season.

Kent State University at Stark will kick off its first theatrical event of the 2012-2013 season with Buried Child by Sam Shepard on Nov. 2, 3, 9 and 10, at 8 p.m., and on Nov. 4 and 11, at 2:30 p.m. in the Kent State Stark Theatre, 6000 Frank Ave. NW in Jackson Township. The show is for mature audiences only. American Sign Language interpretation will be provided for the performance on Nov.  11.

Opening night is Scholarship Night with proceeds benefiting students in Kent State Stark theatre and music programs.

Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama takes a macabre look at the disintegration of the American dream. Mystery and humor combine in the Midwestern home of a dysfunctional family with a very dark secret that plunges them into bizarre degeneration and finally, toward hope.

Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $7 for non-Kent State students, children under 17 and senior citizens. All Kent State students are admitted free of charge with a current student ID. Reserve tickets online at or call the Kent State Stark Theatre Box Office at 330-244-3348, Mondays through Fridays from 1 to 5 p.m.

Directing Buried Child is Kent State Stark Assistant Professor of Theatre and Theatre Director Brian Newberg. Louis Williams is the scenic and lighting designer, Susan Blurton is the costume designer and Ron Jarvis is the sound designer.
