What: “Hill Country,” a play written and directed by Mike Flanagan and performed by Intermountain Teen Center members
When: Friday, MARCH 4, 6 – 8:30 pm. Please note new date; the Feb. 25 performance is postponed due to poor weather.
Where: Hill Country Health and Wellness Center, 29632 Highway 299 East, Round Mountain
Details: Late last year Flanagan was commissioned to write a play about healthy relationships and to lead a drama workshop for teens. The result is “Hill Country,” made possible in part because of a Shasta Women’s Refuge grant. The play is about a group of bus-riding teens, whom, because they live in such a remote location, miss out on typical high-school activities. The play reflects the real-life situation of the actors — Foothill High School students. The play is free, and also features free dinner and dessert. Note: The play is rated PG, and may not be suitable for younger children.
A free dinner will be served at 6 p.m., with the play starting at 7. Dessert will be served during a post-performance discussion.
The play is not suitable for children under 13 years of age, but alternative activities will be provided during the play’s performance.
The play is free to the community and made possible by Acorn Community Enterprises, Shasta Women’s Refuge, Hill Country Health and Wellness Center, Intermountain Teen Center and The Root Theatre Company.
