Furman Theatre presents “Kappa Kappa Scream”

Furman University Theatre will present Kappa Kappa Scream by Randall David Cook Feb. 8-11 and Feb. 16-18 at 8 p.m., with special Friday midnight performances Feb. 10 and Feb. 17, and a Sunday matinee showing Feb. 12 at 3 p.m. All performances take place in The Playhouse on the Furman University campus.

The world premiere production of Cook’s Kappa Kappa Scream is open to the public. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students.

Every October the new pledge class of Kappa Kappa Delta sorority enjoys a weekend retreat together. This year, the sorority president has decided that placing the women in a cabin in the woods and scaring them will lead to deeper bonding and friendship. Unfortunately for them, someone—or something—at the cabin has other ideas. Intended for mature audiences. Not for those afraid of the dark.
