The Department of Theatre and Dance at Alabama State University presents the riveting production of “Tracks,” on September 22-23, Friday and Saturday, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lelia Barlow Theatre on the ASU campus. The play was written by Peter Tarsi and directed by Payton Stovall.

The play’s plot is about being a part of an environment that is huge on tradition and Christianity where often we find ourselves self-condemning one another and ourselves. The writer describes how we are not the ultimate judge, and it is not our job to decide our fate based on our moral compass.

“This play will impact the lives of many young adults in the cast as well as the audience,” said Stephanie Provitt, ASU production manager in the Department of Theatre Arts.  “At the prime time of decision-making in life, ‘Tracks’ can positively impact the students at Alabama State University at the beginning of the semester with its message.”

Provitt said proceeds from the play will benefit the theater program, and those students yet to come.

“Being able to give back to the community is part of the University’s CommUniversity initiative. ASU continues to inspire students to
take ownership of their future while providing real-world experiences.”

General admission to the show is $5.  Tickets can be purchased at the Lelia Barlow Theater ticket booth. For more information, call 334-229-6929/4551.
