Felton, CA: San Lorenzo Valley High School is proud to present Museum, written by Tina Howe. Museum takes place on the final day of a group art show about three fictional, contemporary American artists on exhibit in a major Museum of Modern Art. In this comedic slice of life, some forty people walk through the art show: art lovers, skeptics, foreigners, students, lost souls, fellow artists, and of course, museum guards. The play is about the movement and yearning of these people.
“The gallery becomes a parable of humanity … [in this] comedy of absurdities with a serious message.” – The New York Times
Directed by Senior Students, Sampson Miller and Rowan Nicolette-Ray, this comedy of absurdities is designed and produced entirely by students. From costume, lighting, set and prop design, to stage management, running crew and set building–the students do it all!
Come early and enjoy a tour of the “museum”. And, there will also be a silent art auction held during the run of the show, where theater attendees can bid on museum artwork all created by the Cast and Tech Crew. (All funds raised will benefit the SLVHS Student Director Drama Program).
