The Department of Theatre presents "Take Five by David Ives."

Notice: this information is for a past event.
Ticket Info:
Free but advanced tickets are required.

“Take Five” is not just an iconic jazz composition, it’s also a collection of five short comedies by David Ives. In “Words, Words, Words,” Milton, Swift, and Kafka participate in their captor’s experiment; but will the three chimps produce art? “English Made Simple” plays with, and contests, meaning. In “The Universal Language,” Dawn risks everything to try a compelling vernacular that isn’t Esperanto. “Time Flies” awakens two Mayflies on a date to their existential imperatives. Finally, Ed decides to imagine la vie en rose by pretending he’s a French impressionist in “Degas, C’est Moi.”

In addition to the Denison community, we are currently able to welcome vaccinated family members of Denison students, faculty, and staff and a limited number of vaccinated community members. You will be required to submit either your Denison D# or share your proof of vaccination when ordering your ticket. Masks are required.
