“This show has brought out the best in our kids,” said teacher Mark Dressler. “They’ve been working hard, really stretching themselves with the play’s abstract presentational style.”
Joanne Culverhouse, Thurston principal, said the show will be especially appealing to elementary children.
Shows will be presented at 4 and 7 tonight and Saturday, and 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. The show closes with 4 and 7 p.m. performances Feb. 6.
Tickets are $8 for students, $10 for adults for general admission; all reserved seating is $15. Tickets can be purchased an hour before show time. Call (949) 497-7769.
