Finally, the Xavier Players present Carlo Gozzi’s The King Stag this weekend at the Gallagher Student Center Theater. Remaining performances run tonight through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. with a 2:00 p.m. matinee on Sunday.

Directed by Cerasela Stan, a part-time faculty member in the department of classics, The King Stag tells the story of the King of Serendippo, who is convinced by his scheming prime minister to seek a bride, who the prime minister hopes will be his daughter, who is pledged to another. However, the court magician entrusts the king with two powerful secrets. The first is a plaster bust with the power to reveal if the minister’s daughter truly loves the king. The other is a secret spell that could be disastrous for the king if it fell into the hands of evil.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and are available at the theater box office. For more information please call 513 745-3576.
