Using live music, song, and wildly imaginative physical theatre conventions, this Tony-award winning adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels upends the old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up – aka Peter Pan. Over a dozen actors portray more than 100 unforgettable characters (including marauding pirates, jungle tyrants, unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes), Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores how the bonds of friendship, duty and love can help us overcome greed and despair. An epically entertaining performance suitable for all ages.

The search for a means to an end to apartheid inspires Mr "M", a black South African school teacher, to invite a white South African student named Isabel to join his student Thami in an inter-school debate competition.  He hopes this will demonstrate that even in Apartheid-era South Africa, people of different races can work together toward a common goal. Pressure on Thami erupts into a tumultuous conflict between the black township students and the “old-fashioned” black teacher. This astonishingly provocative drama explores the struggle between choosing actions of constructive dialogue or destructive violence in order to accomplish immediate justice and social change.

Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau

COORDINATED AND DIRECTED BY ANDREW MORTON
March 14, 2019
Audition information available on Facebook, or the bulletin board outside the UM Flint Theater office.

 

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away? 

With profound compassion and lyricism, Pipeline brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Morisseau pens a deeply moving story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future — without turning her back on the community that made him who he is.
