KID SIMPLE Runs April 11-14

MURT_Kid Simple logoKID SIMPLE
Miami University Regionals Theatre
April 11-14
Phelps Hall Studio Theatre [Hamilton]

Moll, a girl who invents things, wins the science fair with a machine for hearing sounds that can’t be heard. But when a shapeshifting Mercenary steals the invention (and her heart), she must embark on a quest to save noise as we know it. Accompanied by the last boy-virgin in the eleventh grade, Moll crosses chasms and rafts rivers into a world where sound is always more than what meets the ear. A quirky fable of innocence and experience, featuring live sound effects, mutinous onomatopoeia, and a host of woodsy temptations.

ACTORS
Be a part of this exciting evening of new works. Be the first to publicly perform these playwrights’ work. There is no prep necessary. Our process is designed to ensure your immediate response/interpretation, so we meet right before the reading to run over the plays quickly. Then we read them for the audience and the playwrights. This way the playwrights learn what is actually in their scripts as opposed to, say… what they thought was there. Contact me to get on the list of actors. Being on the list does not guarantee you a spot. Logistics of casting numbers determine whom we can use. Contact me to sign-up. Bekka Eaton-  eatonrl@miamioh.edu
