Tucson, Arizona--Pima Community College Theatre Arts launches its 2014-2015 Season with the exciting family production, STUART LITTLE, adapted by Joseph Robinette, based on the book by the renowned children’s author E.B. White. Directed by Mickey Nugent. Kids and adults alike will be captivated by this warm-hearted and exciting story about a most unusual mouse. As the second son in a human family, Stuart encounters several adventures, big enough to match any imagination, as he struggles to survive in his over-sized world. He is kind, courageous and loved by most, except perhaps Snowbell the family cat. Stuart embarks on a journey of a lifetime after his best friend, the little bird Margolo, flees to escape being eaten.
Director Nugent chose this play not only for the wonderful story by E.B. White, author of CHARLOTTE’S WEB and THE TRUMPET OF THE SWAN, but also for it's stand up and be who you are approach. Stuart is blessed with strength, charm and intelligence and never fears being different from the others. Nugent remarks, “What a gift he is to the world and how much we can learn from him. All of us should take heart in accepting our differences no matter what and use them to the best of our ability to help teach others who may not understand us. Pure and simple. A great lesson learned in life indeed.”
FAMILY PLAY DATE, a free community Saturday, Sept.20, 10:30 a.m.-noon in the Black Box Theatre. Learn more about the play STUART LITTLE, mingle with the cast and enjoy fun activities, tasty treats and a short preview scene in the “big” theatre.
