Kling is 'Breakin' Hearts & Takin' names

Theatre Central is proud to present renowned storyteller, playwright and author Kevin Kling for a glimpse into his “wonderful world of the skewed and significant mundane.” If you are looking for a great Valentine’s Day gift, wrap up a set of tickets for “Breakin’ Hearts & Takin’ Names” and join Kevin for what is sure to be a hilarious evening, Sat. Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m., in the Kruidenier Theatre at Central College.

Kevin Kling, is a playwright and storyteller whose plays and adaptations have been performed around the world. Best known for his popular commentaries on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, Kling’s autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota and eating things before knowing what they are. For additional information about Kevin Kling, visit his website at www.kevinkling.com.

Prior to the performance, Kling will spend the week in residence with the Central College theatre department. He will also teach a storytelling workshop, visit with kids on Mon., Feb. 17th at the Pella Public Library; share his work at the Geisler Library Writer’s Reading on Thurs. Feb. 20; visit classrooms, and just generally hang around town. Updates and additional events will be listed at the calendar at www.central.edu/fine-arts/.

Kling’s visit is being made possible by the Marion County Community Foundation, Union Street Players, Writer’s Reading, Campus Life Committee, Pella Shakespeare Company, the Central College Fishing Club, Intercultural Life, the Pella Public Library and the Central College Theatre department. His residency precedes the theatre department’s production of one of Kling’s works, “The Ice Fishing Play” (Feb 26 - March 2).

Tickets for the Saturday, Feb. 22 performance of “Breakin’ Hearts & Takin’ Names” are $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and children and free with a Central ID. Tickets may be purchased at the Info booth in the Maytag Center beginning Jan. 29. 641.628.9000.
