The Sky Below
Written by: Maggie Lee
Directed by: Harry Todd Jamieson
For as long as anyone could remember, the mighty floating city of Firmament has drifted through the clouds, safe from the perils and turmoil of the ground beneath. But as each citizen approaches their 13th year, they are faced with an important decision: stay aboard the great city for the rest of their days, or descend to the unseen world below, never to return. As a group of lifelong friends ponder their choice, an unexpected visitor makes them question everything about the only world theyâ€™ve ever known, and the vast open sky separating them from a new one they never imagined. A fantastical science fiction adventure about taking the leap into the unknown and discovering what weighs us down and what makes us soar.
Performances: Saturday, April 22 at 2:00pm. Sunday, April 23 at 2:00pm & 7:00pm.
Baalzebub, a contemporary adaptation of Lord of the Flies
Written by: Rachel Atkins
Directed by: Rachel Delmar
What would a group of young people do if left alone, away from civilization? In response to William Goldingâ€™s classic novel Lord of the Flies, in which a group of post-World War II British schoolboys are stranded on a desert island, Baalzebub tells the story of a group of young people who are stranded together on a kind of desert island: they are left behind at a refugee camp in an unnamed war zone. How are the ways they cope and behave the same as the boys in Lord of the Flies? How are they different? Baalzebub both mirrors the original tale of Lord of the Flies, and follows its own story that reflects a different and more contemporary group of characters and circumstances.
Performances: Friday, April 28 at 7:00pm. Saturday, April 29 at 2:00pm & 7:00pm.
In the Kitchen
Written by: Various Local Playwrights
Directed by: Tara Kaine
We have asked several local hot new playwrights â€” Kelleen Conway Blanchard, Jesse Glick, Benjamin Benne, Julia Nardin, Seayoung Yim â€” to write 10 minute plays specifically created for this age group and set in a kitchen (the set of our main stage production of Grand Concourse). Each role is a wonderfully rich lead and will challenge our students to grow and carry the entirety of a full storyline.
Performances: Saturday, May 27 at 2:00pm. Sunday, May 28 at 7:00pm. Saturday, June 3 at 2:00pm. Sunday, June 4 at 7:00pm.
The Great Brain Robbery
Written by: Gillian Jorgensen
Directed by: Steven Sterne
What do you do when youâ€™re a mediocre entertainer? Practice, practice, practice!! Except thatâ€™s no good when the brains of the operation are plot-free and skills-starved. Enter Walt Disneyâ€¦ or rather, enter The Day Players into Walt Disneyâ€™s vault at Epcot Center. This band of ruffian thespians are confident they can revive Disney’s cryogenically preserved wit and become the happiest show on earthâ€¦ until they realize that all Mr. Disney wants to do is live his newfound life. Disney will experience a whole new Disneyworld, everything shiny and new. But what about The Day Players? Will they find their denouement within the greatest musical ever produced or will they turn to a life of crime?
Performances: Saturday, June 24 at 12:00pm and Sunday, June 25 at 12:00pm.Â
