Senior Company Show: Untitled Experimental Devised Gay Sports Comedy: An Avant-Garde World Premiere Gay Comedy About Sports

For Grades 9 – 12
Fall Session (by audition only)
It’s the night before the big championship, and everything has been leading up to this moment. But Coach sprained their ankle, the uniforms have gone missing, and Zack is in love with Geoffrey—who’s on the other team! This ensemble-driven process will challenge actors to generate original characters, build a compelling narrative, and flex their physical theatre muscles. Together the ensemble will create a surreal comedy that wrestles with themes of team spirit, personal identity, and Gatorade. Lots of Gatorade.

Rehearsals: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 5 – 8pm, September 24 – November 15

Tech/Dress Rehearsals: November 18 — 20, 4:30 – 9pm
