Elephant’s Graveyard Comes to Life at Pace

“There was a town. There was a circus. And there was an elephant…” On November 8-12, Pace’s Performing Arts Department takes on George Brant’s Elephant’s Graveyard.

Set in 1916, Elephant’s Graveyard combines historical fact and legend to tell the story of the only known lynching of an elephant. Told through the perspective of the townspeople of Erwin, Tennessee, and the people of Spark’s World Famous Circus, this play hits all of our favorite notes: spectacle, greed, and revenge.

Directed by Pace student Colton Childs, see the Performing Arts production of Elephant’s Graveyard in the Schaeberle Studio, 41 Park Row, 10th Floor, on November 8-12 at 8:00 p.m. $5 student tickets ($10 for adults) can be reserved by emailing theater@pace.edu or calling (212) 346-1954.

Next up will be Broadway hit Kiss Me, Kate on November 16-20 in the Schimmel Theater. For more information, visit the Performing Arts website.
