“The Whale” Closing At CSC

The final performance of the Chadron State College production of the drama The Whale is tonight at 7:00 in the Black Box Theater on the second floor of Memorial Hall.

      Seating is limited, so tickets are required but they’re also free.

Reserving them online at CSC.edu/theatre is recommended to avoid the risk of showing up and not being able to get a ticket. 

      The play uses the story of a 600-pound man wanting to die to show the struggle with mental health that many people have, and how self-harm and suicide can come in many forms.
