Albuquerque Theatre Guild Fall 2018 Play-Dates
Good news! With the generous help of the Lineberry Foundation, the Play-Dates program continues this year with ATG member theatres providing FREE tickets to middle and high school students so they can enjoy and learn about live theatre. A Play-Date Host, someone knowledgeable about the show they're going to see, welcomes them to the show, tells them about it and what they can expect, answers questions, and, in short, does everything to help make this a memorable theatre experience for them.
Productions available for the Fall, 2018 season are:
Our Town by Thornton Wilder. What really matters? Is it the big things in life, or the small? Our Town explores these questions through the lens of a small town that could be any town in the world. The Stage Manager or narrator shows us small town life, specifically the lives of Emily and George. We follow them, as they grow from children to adults, through their very relatable awkward changes as they stumble toward love and adulthood. Through laughter, and tragedy, they and we, learn what it really means to be truly alive in this vast and amazing universe. Mother Road Theatre Company, Sunday, October 7th matinee.
¡Bocón! by Lisa Loomer. A fable filled with humor and mysticism and song, tells the story of twelve-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive military regime in Central America for Los Angeles. A natural storyteller and irrepressible "big mouth" or bocón, Miguel loses his voice when his parents are taken and begins a metaphorical journey north to the City of Angels. Along the way he meets up with an unusual traveling companion, La Llorona, the legendary "Weeping Woman" of Mexican and Central American mythology. Through their magical friendship, Miguel finds his voice and the courage to cross the border to a new life. Miguel's story is relevant to immigrant children from all parts of the world … and to any child who is learning the many meanings of finding one's own "voice." CNM's Coal Avenue Theatre -- Sunday, November 11th matinee.
It’s A Wonderful Life. The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him—by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born—that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This dramatization celebrates the faith and humanity of the season and is a holiday treat for the whole family! Albuquerque Little Theatre -- Sunday, December 2nd matinee *
Peter Pan. Second star to the right, then straight on ‘till morning. Mermaids that sing, Stars that dance, Natives on the hunt, a Crocodile that ticks, and Pirates lurking in the shadows. Join Peter, Wendy, Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys as they embark on a great adventure to Neverland. elite Dance & Theatre – Saturday, December 8th matinee*
