'Inspecting Carol' opens tonight at ASNMSU Center for the Arts

The American Southwest Theatre Company at New Mexico State University Theatre Arts will open "Inspecting Carol" tonight with a performance at 7:30 p.m. at the ASNMSU Center for the Arts.

Written by Daniel Sullivan and directed by Nichole Hamilton, "Inspecting Carol" goes behind the scenes of a struggling theatre's annual slapdash production of "A Christmas Carol" as rehearsals are at a standstill. Tim is no longer tiny, Scrooge wants to do the play in Spanish and more. It's a wickedly knockabout satire of "A Christmas Carol."

Tickets are available one hour before each performance at the ASNMSU Center for the Arts box office or at the Pan American Center. Other scheduled performances include 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17; 7:30 p.m. Nov. 23; 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Nov. 24; 2 p.m. Nov. 25; 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30; 7:30 p.m. Dec. 1; and 2 p.m. Dec. 2. For more information, call 575-646-1420.

The goal of the Descubre recruiting event is to provide an overview of NMSU with college-specific information, details on NMSU’s intensive English program, and information regarding NMSU’s admissions process. Attendees will also get a chance to tour colleges and campus facilities, and learn more about the Descubre tuition rate for Mexican nationals who attend NMSU. The Descubre tuition rate is 1.5 times the in-state tuition rate.
