This Spring, the Shasta College Theatre Department presents a contemporary coming-of-age play examining identity, politics, and loss as seen through the dizzying whirl of adolescent attitudes, anxieties, and vulnerability of a women’s indoor soccer team in The Wolves.
Playwright Sarah De-Lappe invites the audience inside the confidential circle of her teenage athletes to paint a picture of female camaraderie in its most authentic form. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of nine, adolescent American girls who ultimately just want to kick, pass, and score some goals.
Performance dates are March 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the Shasta College Theatre with Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m. on March 15 and 22. ASL interpretation is available for the performance on Friday, March 20.
Tickets can be purchased for $12 general admission, $10 seniors, $5 students, and are available now at www.shastacollege.edu/tickets or by calling the box office at 530-242-7573.
The Wolves is produced in special arrangement with Samuel French, INC and Directed by Dr. Gregory Thorson, with lighting by Tim Dye, set design by David Fraser, costumes by Hilary Fahey, and hair and makeup by Matthew McDonald.
