The University of Louisiana\Department of Performing Arts presents Good Thing by Jessica Goldberg. Performances are March 24-27 @ 7:30pm and March 28 @ 2:00pm in Burke Theatre in Burke-Hawthorn Hall on the UL campus.

University of Louisiana Performing ArtsSara Birk, Assistant Professor of Acting and Voice at UL, is directing this production. Professor Birk has worked as actor, director, and vocal coach in numerous productions in both educational and independent theatres around the country. Actors for this production include students from the Performing Arts Department at UL-Lafayette.

Dean is about to be a father for the first time. Unfortunately, what should be a joyful occasion is not quite what he expected. The impending birth has necessitated locking the mother-to-be in a room so that she won’t get into Dean’s brother’s drug stash and harm the baby. And just to make things more complicated, Dean’s ex-girlfriend has returned from college to renew their relationship, prompting Dean to wonder if his choices in life have been the right ones.

Good Thing examines those moments when we look back at past decisions and try to figure out where we went wrong, and how we can make things right. Sometimes the right choice is the one most difficult to face, and the one that will cost the most.

Tickets for Good Thing are $10.00 for General Admission, $5.00 for UL Alumni, Senior Citizens, children and students. UL faculty, staff and students with a valid ID are admitted free of charge. Tickets are available at the door one hour prior to each performance. Due to adult situations and language, this production is intended for mature audiences. For further information please call the UL Lafayette Department of Performing Arts at 482-6357.
