37 high school students to appear on ATC's professional stage
Arizona Theatre Company is proud to present Summer on Stage 2007, featuring 37 high school students who will star in two productions on Arizona Theatre Company’s stage.�
Summer on Stage uses professional artists to teach high school students a variety of acting techniques including character development, voice for the actor, scene and monologue study, movement and dance. Students are educated through classroom work, and an intensive rehearsal process leads to fully mounted productions performed at the Temple of Music and Art, the home of Arizona Theatre Company.�
This season’s productions include Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s Lucky Stiff, directed by Mark McCarthy; and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire’s Snow Angel, directed by Lisa Rothschiller. Free performances are scheduled for August 1 – 4 at the Temple of Music and Art in downtown Tucson.��
Based on the novel The Man Who Broke The Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is a musical farce with a complicated and hysterically funny plot that involves one dead body, a nerdy English shoe salesman, six million bucks in diamonds, and a lot of dogs! Lucky Stiff plays August 2 and August 4 at 7 PM.�
In Snow Angel, the quiet town of Deerpoint, Vermont is hit by the biggest blizzard in 107 years, and a mysterious girl named Eva steps out of a snow bank and into the lives of 15 confused teenagers who are asked to help her in her search. What Eva's searching for -- and who she truly is -- becomes a mystery that baffles, divides, and energizes the teens of Deerpoint. Told through journal entries and interactions among the students over the course of a single snow day, Snow Angel is a funny and eerie tale of teen angst, discovery, and the power of believing. Snow Angel plays August 1 and August 3 at 7 PM.�
