All performances will begin at 8 p.m. in the DeWitt Center main theater.

“Ring Around the Moon” is a wistfully romantic French comedy dealing with issues of social class and love. It is directed by Daina Robins, professor of theater and chairwoman of Hope's theater department.

“We hope to produce a lovely spring romp to close our academic season,” Robins said. “We’ve set the play in the 1930s, which should translate into a lovely set, elegant costumes and fun music from the period’s Hot Club of France. And, of course, lighting effects must include a moon.”

The production is choreographed by Matthew Farmer, assistant professor of dance at Hope. The assistant stage managers are freshman Bridget McCarthy of Grand Haven and sophomore Bradley Hamilton of Lathrop Village.

Tickets for “Ring Around the Moon” are $10 for regular admission, $7 for senior citizens and Hope faculty and staff, and $5 for students. They are available at the ticket office in the main lobby of the DeVos Fieldhouse.
