The PWSCC Drama Department’s next production will be Eric Coble’s Bright Ideas, which goes up at the Valdez Civic Center at 7 pm on April 11 & 12, with an additional performance as the kick-off event for the 22nd Annual Last Frontier Theatre Conference on June 7.
The play revolves around a married couple, Josh (Robert Covington) and Genevra (Sarah Jorgenson-Owen) who are desperate to get their child into Bright Ideas Early Childhood Development Academy, and will do anything to make that happen. The rest of the cast of three (Heidi Franke, Ronnie Houchin, and Corey Taylor) play the many characters they meet along the way.
The New York Times said of the initial production “Eric Coble’s deliciously black comedy benefits from hilariously funny, psychologically astute portraits… the near surreal spoof hits home with rib-tickling acuity,” and Variety called it “A tidy little gem of comic insanity.” Tickets are $10 and are available at the door. All students get in free, though the production contains adult themes and language; it is recommended for ages 14 & up. Call 834-1614 for more information.
