The Auburn Players Community Theatre will next present "Animal Farm," George Orwell's satire about totalitarianism, this weekend at Cayuga Community College.

Virginia Fennessy will direct Ian Woolridge's stage adaptation of Orwell's 1945 novella. It follows a group of farm animals who overthrow their keeper to become their own rulers, only to require someone to take the farmer's place. The book is the origin of the well-known line, "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 14, 15 and 16, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, in Irene A. Bisgrove Community Theatre at the college, 197 Franklin St., Auburn.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and free for students with ID. The show is part of the Auburn Players' Literary Series, which is made possible by community support and has the mission to ensure accessibility to the arts to every student, regardless of their ability to pay.
