JSU Drama to Open Curtain on 2016-17 Season


JSU Drama's first show of the season, "These Shining Lives," will take the stage Oct. 27-30. 

Inspired by true events, “These Shining Lives” follows the harrowing tale of four Chicago women working in a watch factory in the 1920s, before government-implemented health and safety regulations. As the health of our heroines quickly deteriorates, their spirits do not. They continue to fight their employer in the hope that no one will have to suffer as they have.

  • Catherine: Savannah Jones
  • Charlotte: Ebony Antoine
