THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH Artist Matinee – Marquette Theatre
Marquette Theatre announces special artist rate tickets for a matinee of THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH. Artist tickets will be sold for $9 and are available for the show at 11:00 am on Friday, February 24. Tickets can be purchased at the door a half-hour before curtain or by calling (414) 288-7505. The show’s run will continue from Wednesday, February 22 to Sunday, Wednesday 26.
Written by Thornton Wilder and directed by Jamie Cheatham, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH is a comedy that mixes satire, burlesque and farce. The Marquette production promises to be like nothing you’ve seen before on the Helfaer stage. Follow Wilder’s “first family,” the Antrobus family, from the ice age straight up to present day. This tenacious clan lives through the invention of the wheel, the Great Flood, and all of the frustration and liberation of building a better world, as they struggle to survive by the skin of their teeth.
All Marquette Theatre performances take place at the Helfaer Theatre on Marquette University’s campus, located at 525 N. 13th St. For tickets to other performances, or for more information, visit and”
