Ithaca College Theatre Cosponsors Free Prize Package for 'Measure for Measure' Production
ITHACA, NY — Ithaca College Theatre is offering a drawing for two free tickets to one of its April productions of Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure.” Included in the offer is a free one-night stay for two people at La Tourelle Resort and Spa and a free brunch at La Tourelle’s Simply Red Bistro.
To enter the contest, go to /hs/depts/theatre/mainstage/measure/ and fill out the online form. A winner will be chosen April 22, and a representative of Ithaca College Theatre will arrange the winner’s tickets and room reservation. Performances of “Measure for Measure” will run from April 24 to 29. The free stay at La Tourelle will be available from April 23 to May 10.
As “Measure for Measure” opens, the Duke of Vienna has apparently left his city in disarray and given the ruling power rule to Angelo, the harsh but virtuous judge. In actuality, the Duke has disguised himself as a friar in order to spy on Angelo and see for himself how strict and virtuous the judge can be. What ensues is a dark comedic journey filled with mischief, injustice and stark commentary on the hazards of absolute power in the hands of unprepared men.
