Phantom Projects' 13th Season of Theatre for a Teen Audience

La Mirada~Phantom Projects Educational Theatre Group, which uniquely brings live theatre to teen audiences, has selected the lineup for the 2009/2010 Season of Theatre for Teens at its home in La Mirada, The La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts


October 22, 2009 A Thousand Cranes Sadako Saski was 2 years old when the atomic bomb dropped on the small city she lived in: Hiroshima. Ten years later, she was diagnosed with "radiation sickness." A Thousand Cranes tells the true and poignant story of her battle and the tradition of folding origami miniatures: If a sick person folds a thousand cranes, the Gods will grant her a wish and make her healthy. She happily begins folding hundreds of colorful paper cranes; when she falls short, her classmates continue her mission by folding 650 more cranes. A statue of Sadako, as a tribute to all of the children killed by the bombings, stands tall in the Hiroshima Tribute Garden. The production is Written by  Kathryn Schultz Miller and Directed by Kate Barrett.

 

February 25, 2010 The Bluest Eye Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye is a story about the tragic life of a young black girl in 1940's Ohio. Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse. She blames her dark skin and prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow. With rich language and bold vision, this powerful adaptation of an American classic explores the crippling toll that a legacy of racism has taken on a community, a family, and an innocent girl. The production is adapted by Lydia R. Diamond from the novel by Toni Morrison and is directed by Janet Miller.

May 20, 2010 No Way to Treat a Lady A pregnant teen, a baby with HIV, and a young couple at the crossroads of their relationship. Hear true stories of teens and their daily struggle with one of today's most difficult pressures. Delivered by a cast of young actors, No Way to Treat a Lady shatters the misconceptions of teen sex while creating a realistic portrayal of today's youth. The message is simple: self-control. The production is written by Bruce Gevirtzman and is Directed by Steve Cisneros.
