Looking for some family fun for Halloween weekend? See the WKU Children’s Theatre production of Milo’s Intergalactic Circus, written by student playwright Elliott Talkington, a senior from Owensboro.
“The author has a wacky sense of humor,” said director Kirsten Kellersberger, a senior from Salvisa. “It’s a very funny play – plus it has a great message for everyone who felt like they didn’t fit in somewhere.”
Milo’s Intergalactic Circus will be presented at 4 p.m. Friday (Oct. 30) and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 31-Nov. 1) at the Gordon Wilson Hall Lab Theatre. The production is suitable for all ages. All tickets are $5 and are available online at wku.showare.com or by calling the WKU Fine Arts Box Office at (270) 745-3121. Box office hours are noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
