"Thoreau" to Open Tonite

Fullerton College Hornet  - Staff Writer - Friday, October 30th, 1970

As the American public debates the justification of conscription for a foreign war, the FJC Drama department will present tonight a drama studying this problem.

"The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail," will be shown tonight in the Campus Theatre starting at 8:00 p.m.

The drama evolves around Henry David Thoreau, who believed it mortally wrong to pay tax into a fund which supported a war. The famous writer was jailed for failing to pay the tax.

Other performances are Oct. 31, Nov. 5, 6, and 7. Prices are $1.50 for adults and $1.00 for students.

Tickets are on sale in the Theatre Arts Patio 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and at the box office on nights of the performances.
