Performance blurs lines between play, reality
The Phamaly Theater Company will be performing “Red Riding Hood Stick to the Path,” sponsored by Laramie County Community College, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, at Central High School.
The performance follows siblings Stephen and Brigid as they pretend to be in the typical Red Riding Hood story, but as the night goes on the lines blur between what is play and what is real.
“Red Riding Hood Stick to the Path” features an imaginative musical twist with overarching themes of teamwork, cooperation and making your own way in the world.
“We’re hoping we might be able to fill the theatre a bit more (than the LCCC Playhouse) and we wanted to make it accessible to everybody, as well as handicapped individuals,” said Lisa Trimble, director of Alumni Affairs and Event Planning, explaining why the performance would be held at Central rather than at LCCC. The performance is free to attend and will be in the CHS auditorium.
Phamaly Theatre Company is a company that features disabled actors and screenwriters. The company has been the focus of multiple documentaries.
Micayla Smith and Daniel Traylor will play Bridget and Stephen, and both have starred in many productions, including plays, short films and web series.
The funding for the project comes from interest on investments with the college.
