On Friday, July 30 the Center for the Arts Youth Theater Department will debut their play “All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play” by Werner Trieschmann.
The cast, ranging in ages from 11 to 14 have been in rehearsal since May. The play is based on several disastrous theatrical experiences. “Bad Play” peels back the tattered curtain to examine the process of putting on a show that is less than good. A stuffy narrator guides the audience through the sorry process—from audition, to rehearsal and the opening curtain. This bad play within a play won’t win any awards, but will keep the audiences in stitches.
“Anyone who has every done theater, or been to the theater will enjoy this farse,“.said Tabitha Cuomo, Youth Theater Director. “This play showcases everything that could and does go wrong in the the theater. From an angry stage manager who wasn’t cast, to a director who is hyped up on coffee and unable to make sound decisions “
The play begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 30 and at 3 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 31. Tickets are $3 for youth and $5 for adults and are available art the door or by calling the Center for the Arts at 495-8989. The play will take place at the Live! performance space at The Promenade, 26811 S Bay Dr ,space 114.
