MIT Dramashop stages 'Arms and the Man'

As a faculty member at MIT since 1989, Michael Ouellette has directed 24 student plays, including 11 by Shakespeare and others by Richard Sheridan, Jean Anouilh and Aristophanes.

In a return to the show he first directed at MIT, and for his final production before retiring, Ouellette is directing MIT students in a production of George Bernard Shaw's classic antiwar romance, "Arms and the Man."

The show, about a young war-hero-worshipping woman and her "chocolate soldier," is produced by Dramashop, a co-curricular student theater group open to all members of the MIT community.

Performances will take place from April 8-10 and April 14-16 at 8 p.m. in Kresge Little Theater (48 Massachusetts Avenue). Tickets are $8; $6 for MIT students. For reservations, visit; call 617-253-2877 for more information or visit
