UW-La Crosse Theater and Dance Department opens season with 'Dr. Faustus' on Oct. 13

Would you sell your soul? And, if you would, for what? This is the premise of “Dr. Faustus,” the season opening performance for the UW-La Crosse’s Department of Theatre and Dance. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13-14 and Oct. 19-21. Sunday matinees will be at 2 p.m. on Oct. 15 and 22, in the UWL Toland Theatre, Lowe Center for the Arts, 333 N. 16th St. Tickets go on sale online beginning Sunday, Oct. 1. In person and phone ticket sales begin at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 9. 

Faustus is a brilliant but embittered academic who has exhausted the confines of human knowledge. Frustrated with the futility of religion, law and science, he is desperate for a deeper understanding of the universe and the worldwide fame that would bring. Risking everything, he conjures a demon and asks him to strike a deal with Lucifer: twenty-four years of absolute knowledge and infinite power in exchange for his soul. Despite being tormented by doubt, Faustus agrees and signs in blood. But as he begins to revel in his new powers, the world around him starts to collapse and the clock inexorably counts down to the final moment of reckoning.
