March 2nd, 2018 All Day - March 3rd, 2018

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s theatre arts program will present the witty romantic comedy “The Philadelphia Story” on March 2nd and 3rd at 7:30pm in the Davis Hall Little Theater.



The Davis Hall Little Theatre is our laboratory,” said Katie Davis, professor of theatre arts and coordinator of the theatre arts program. “We are fortunate not to prioritize box office sales; we get to produce work that directly supports the curriculum and gives students the chance to learn a broad range of theatre skills. The best part is that we get to invite audiences to experience this, learn with us, and afford a great time in the theater. It’s been fun to take the community on the journey with us as we produce classic plays, musicals, children’s theatre, and plays of many avant-garde styles.”


Playwright Philip Barry was born in 1896 in Rochester, New York. His life as a writer began at the age of nine, when he published a short story in a local newspaper. The Philadelphia Story was inspired by the time Barry spent in Philadelphia with the family of Helen Hope Montgomery on their “main line” estate.


Tickets for the production will be available at the door for $10. For more information, contact Davis at 405-574-1310 or [email protected].
