Peace Mountain Theatre company will stage a live (via Zoom) performance of a short one-act play, THE OTHER.
This play tells the tale of four kids, lost in the woods and scared, not knowing which way to turn. Caught in a rainstorm, they discover a small shack nearby, but the problem is – there are strange voices, strange sounds coming from within. Should they seek shelter at this place? Stay where they are? What should they do?
More importantly, what would YOU do if you were in their shoes? If it were YOU and your friends?
When the performance is over, you will have the opportunity to tell the actors what to say, what to do. How would you tell the story? Did the actors make the right decision? Is there a “right” course of action?
This performance is your chance to be the director, the writer, or the actor; the ideas are all yours. Observe how the play changes as new ideas are incorporated into the script.
[Parents and Grandparents: This story is perfect for children from elementary school age through early teens. PMTC invites you to watch this performance with your children and to work with them in formulating their ideas for restructuring the play.]
