Elizabeth Jochum, administrative assistant in theater arts, is appearing in Ablaze Theatre Initiative's debut performance of Dylan Thomas' play, "Under Milk Wood." The drama, which traces the lives of the villagers of a tiny Welsh seaport, includes actual residents, ghosts and voices. "I'm playing 2nd Voice (one of two narrators, who's alive but sort of ethereal) and Rosie Probert, who's dead, but very lively," said Jochum. Performances are at the Tremont Theater (276 Tremont St., Boston) through Sunday, Sept. 29. Curtain is at 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday; 2 and 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 3 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $32 to $36, but the company is offering a special "buy one, get one free" deal for members of the MIT community with current I.D. (cash only). For more information, call (617) 931-2000.
