7 Ways

Mercer Theatre to Present Valentine’s Day-Themed Play This February

MACON, GA – Mercer Theatre, the production season from Mercer University’s Theatre Department, presents 7 Ways to Say I Love You directed by Scot Mann Feb. 13-23 at Tattnall Square Center for the Arts.

7 Ways to Say I Love You is comprised of seven 10-minute scenes ranging from the blooming of a new romance to the wilting of a dysfunctional love story and everything in between. Join April and John as they find love over pizza or witness the conversation Moneypenny has with her cat as she waits for James Bond to pick her up for a date. This show captures the happiness, grief, and whimsy that are ubiquitous in love and relationships.

“This show is a light, fun romance for Valentine’s Day,” said director Scot Mann. “It’s a fun show to enjoy with your date.”

This production features the opportunity to reduce your ticket price or even get free admission for you and your love to see the show.
