  • “Beyond Glory,” a one-man play performed by Stephen Lang, will be presented at Missouri University of Science and Technology in November.
    The play, which illustrates the tales of men at war through eight different perspectives, will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The show is part of Missouri S&T’s 2013-14 Campus Performing Arts Series.
    Tickets are $38 for adults and $28 for youth age 18 years and younger. The first 75 tickets for Missouri S&T students with student ID are free, and additional S&T student tickets are $10.
    Tickets may be purchased online at leachtheatre.mst.edu/cpas/cpas13-14/beyondglory/ or from the Leach Theatre box office, located in the vestibule inside the main entrance to Leach Theatre, facing 10th Street. Box office hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
    Lang, who is best-known for his acclaimed performance in James Cameron's “Avatar” in 2009, returns to the stage to bring to life eight individual stories about past Medal of Honor winners.
    His performance will span World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. “Beyond Glory” renders firsthand accounts of valor that resulted in the nation’s highest military award.
    Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its Back Row Club one hour prior to the event, should tickets remain for the show. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold for $10 each prior to the performance.
    “Beyond Glory” is sponsored in part by Robert and Susan Hooper, Renegade Radio 107.9 FM and Forum Dental.
