BC Drama Department to present 'Happy Birthday, Wanda June'

Wed Oct 2, 2019

The Brazosport College Drama Department kicks off the new semester with Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s dark comedy, “Happy Birthday, Wanda June,” for six dates, beginning October 10.

Performances of “Happy Birthday Wanda June” are scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 10 through Saturday, Oct. 12 and then from Thursday, Oct. 17 through Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Seidule Drama Theatre on the Brazosport College campus. Showtime for the productions is 8 p.m.

Written in 1971, “Happy Birthday Wanda June” was Vonnegut’s first published play. It’s the story of a war veteran and big-game hunter who returns home after being away for years. The story offers a darkly funny glimpse at American culture, capitalism and male swagger. 

“Happy Birthday Wanda June” has mature themes and adult language, and is not recommended for children. The play is presented through a special arrangement with Samuel French.

Admission is free for BC students with valid identification. General admission is $5 and tickets for students and seniors are $4. For reservations, call (979) 230-3271.
