STAGE KISS - Scottsdale Community College - March 3 - 11, 2017
When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930's melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage.
That's the premise of "Stage Kiss" from playwright Sarah Ruhl. It will be performed by Scottsdale null Community College's Theatre Arts students March 3-5 and 10-11. The shows are free to attend with a reservation and open to the public.
The play is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss -- or when actors share a real one. It contains mature language and sexual content.
Audience members must be 16 years or older to attend.
"Throughout the play, the principal characters are confronted with art imitating life, and, though a series of often hasty decisions, bring about life imitating art -- with potentially disastrous results," says Jesse James Kamps, who directs the student cast.
Performance times are 7:30 p.m. on March 3, 4 and 10 with 2 p.m. matinee shows March 4 and 11.
