The Great Gatsby
February 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$11 – $17
Altoona Community Theatre presents The Great Gatsby at the Mishler Theatre February 10-13. Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan as the Roaring 20’s come to the Mishler stage in an acclaimed adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel (approved by the Fitzgerald estate).
Nick Carraway, a young would-be writer and a newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed, and danger. They’re all sipping cocktails, flirting heedlessly, and spinning fantasies about themselves and about Gatsby, their mysterious host. Nick narrates a tale of love, dreams, and tragedy.
“A beautifully crafted stage interpretation of the 1925 novel which defined the Jazz Age. This is indeed a Grand Gatsby.” London Free Press
