U of M theater is no longer a bank-breaker

The Weisman Art Museum celebrated its opening yesterday with a performance by Rogue Valley, free screen-printed t-shirts, popcorn and punch.

But WAM isn’t the only building on campus that’s opening up.

Over on the West Bank, the Rarig Center is becoming more open to spendthrift students, thanks to the theater department.

“In an attempt to fling wide the doors of Rarig… we’ve completely revamped the pricing structure,” said Peg Guilfoyle, the department’s producing director.

Most theater events will be completely free.

For any show that isn’t free, students will only have to pay five bucks. And that’s not limited to U of M students. Any student with any type of student ID will be able to slam down an Abe Lincoln and see a play. Non-students will be charged $10.
