Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters opens CCM Drama’s Studio Series this evening (Thursday, Nov. 4). Sisters Olga (Catherine Prevett), Irina (Caroline Shannon) and Masha (Bennett Bradley) are refined and cultured young women who were raised in urban Moscow but have been living in a small, colorless Russian provincial town for eleven years. With their father dead, their hopes lie heavily in their anticipated return to Moscow, while the painful monotony of day-to-day living exacts its toll. The production, directed by Professor Diane Kvapil, runs Thursday through Saturday in the Cohen Family Studio Theatre. Click here for more details. Tickets to select performances are still available through CCM’s Box Office.

Drama Studio Series Sponsor: Neil Artman and Margaret Straub
