The 7-Shot Symphony performs Friday at The O'Shaughnessy

The O'Shaughnessy in cooperation with The SCU Department of Music and Theater and St. Kate's Student Center and Activities present The 7-Shot Symphony by Live Action Set for one night only, Sept. 28, 2012.

Winner of the 2011 Ivey award for “Best Overall Production,” The 7-Shot Symphony combines live music and Cirque Du Soleil-like movements with epic mythological characters. Eurydice, Thor, Anansi, Hades, Orpheus and many more will meet onstage, as only Olympians can. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University.

Developed under the direction of Ryan Underbakke, Matt Spring, and its cast, The 7-Shot Symphony takes place in the fictional Deus County, where seven actors play over 45 different characters and create epic shoot-outs, acts of heroism, and intense love stories without the use of props. Underscored by the band, Tree Party, the cast takes you on an adventure combining myths and legends from various cultures, creating their worlds using only their bodies.

Tickets are $25 for adults; $23 for adult groups of 10 or more and SCU Alumni; $20 for seniors and faculty or staff; and $10 for students and children. This event is free
for St. Kate's students with a valid ID. Wear a Fringe Festival button to receive $3 off.
