Director Lyle Schwarz and actor Sam Shown join The Morning Buzz to preview the next EOU Theatre production: The Elephant Man.

This will be the second time Lyle Schwarz will be directing this performance at EOU, as he had previously done so during the 1990’s. The performance this time around will even be held in the theater named after him.

The Elephant Man is based on the true story of Joseph Merrick, who lived in London during the late 19th Century. Once a circus freak, Merrick is taken in by a compassionate doctor and shown the better side of humanity.

The Elephant Man runs March 7th – 9th & 15th – 16th, 2019, at 7PM in the Lyle Schwarz Theater on the campus at Eastern Oregon University. Tickets can be purchased online, or by contacting the Theater Box Office.
