UW's Snowy Range Festival Opens June 9

June 5, 2009 -- The University of Wyoming's Snowy Range Summer Theatre and Dance Festival opens with "I Am My Own Wife," June 9-13 at the Fine Arts Center studio theatre.

The winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for drama, two Tony Awards and two Outer Critics' Circle Awards, "I Am My Own Wife" is a one-actor play based on the life of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an openly gay German transvestite and collector of culture who survived and flourished within the harrowing eras of Hitler's Gestapo and East Germany's Stasi.

Nightly performances begin at 7:30. Tickets cost $10 for the public, $8 senior citizens and $5 students. For tickets and information, call (307) 766-6666 or go online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

The festival, established in 2005 as an outgrowth of UW's longstanding summer theatre program and its annual dance festival, continues throughout the summer with three additional plays and three dance concerts.
