Nov. 20, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- As its final selection of 2001, the Western Film Society presents "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," an adaptation of the off-Broadway hit about a rock-and-roll drag queen's search for stardom. "Hedwig" screens at the Little Theatre, Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 2:30 and 5 p.m.

"Hedwig" swept the Sundance Film Festival, winning the Audience Award and the Director's Award and was cited as, "a gender-bending rock musical that really delivers," by the New York Post.

The Little Theatre is on the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver St. on Western Michigan University's East Campus. General admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at (616) 387-8221, or visit the Western Film Society on the Web at <www.wmich.edu/films>.
