Complimentary Tickets for A Tale of Two Cities

Act 1 DeSalesUniversity Theatre invites all DSU faculty and staff to receive two complimentary tickets to the opening of our Spring Season, Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities
The French Revolution • An Aristocrat • A Death Sentence • A Tale of Vengeance and Hope 
Dickens’ exhilarating tale pits Charles and Lucie Darnay, the epitome of all that is good, against Sydney Carton, a selfish opportunist whose life has been built on disappointment and lost love. An epic tale of intertwined destinies, sacrifice, and vengeance that truly represents the famous first line, “It was the best of times and the worst of times.”
Complementary tickets are available for the following performances:
Wednesday, February 20  & Thursday, February 21 at 8:00 p.m.
Wednesday, February 27  & Thursday, February 28 at 8:00 p.m.
