Students, Alumni, and Parents Perform for Parish Players: Oct. 11-21
October 05, 2018
TA seniors Eli Kaliski, Alden Nichols, and Maeve Curtin (Stage Manager) are featured in local playwright and TA parent Duncan Nichols’ new play, Silvia and Mary at Sea, a “scary musical fairy tale” which time travels from 1968 to 1868 and back again. The play opens at The Parish Players Theater in Thetford Hill on Thursday, Oct. 11.
Directed by Nora Jacobson, the play also features several TA alumni, parents, past parents, and community members, including Bettina Abrams, Ria Blaas, Brenda Danielson, Charles Goldensher, Liam Gundlach, Chris Hebb, Don Kollisch, Kate Magill, Peter Money, Duncan Nichols, Henry Nichols, and Whit Van Meter. The play also includes a number of Cuban and Brazilian songs performed live.
A synopsis: It’s 1968, a time of assassinations and war, and journalist Mary from New York City comes to the Caribbean after a divorce. She meets Silvia, a Cuban singer and her band — and they find themselves swept up in a whirl of political intrigues and moral corruption, time-traveling to 1868 and back!
Performances will be held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 11–13 and 18–20 at7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. on Oct. 14 and 21. Tickets: General admission $15; seniors $12; students $12 ($5 for students on Thursdays!).
