Young Adult Company

Summer 2017 Young Adult Company 

This summer the company will be performing three shows, one straight show and two musicals.
The Laramie Project
Assassins
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

                                       
All actors will be cast in the straight show (The Laramie Project) and ONE of the two musicals (Assasins or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum).
Synopsis:
The Laramie Project – A play written by Moisés Kaufman that addresses the brutal murder of openly gay teenager Matthew Shepard in the small town of Laramie, Wyoming, an incident that sparked national debate back in 1998.
Assassins  – A musical written by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman which depicts the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum – A musical by Stephen Sondheim that tells the story of Pseudolus, a crafty slave, who struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.
