Luna Stage has always held a firm belief that direct exposure to the power of live theatre encourages young people to tap into their own creative expression. These invaluable experiences lead young people to develop a life-long appreciation of the arts, and to better define themselves as individuals within a society.
Luna Stage is currently offering a school-time matinee for:
King of the Mountains
A New Play by Ben Clawson
Commissioned with the support of The Dramatists Guild Foundation in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of The National Park Service
For three days in May of 1903, President Teddy Roosevelt and the naturalist John Muir camped alone together in the Yosemite. One expected to be paid homage, revered for his accomplishments, and praised for his wilderness prowess. The other desired to have his voice heard, his philosophy followed, and his wisdom sought. The problem was, both men wanted to do all the talking.
A complex look at the ongoing battle over what do do with our public lands told through the unique wit and whimsy of Luna favorite Ben Clawson (Tilt the Unlit Candle, Dangers of Electric Lighting, and The High Water Mark).
Wednesdays at 10am
October 19th and 26th, 2016
Appropriate for High School Students.
Student tickets $10 - Up to four faculty members/chaperones free.
Performance may be followed by a Talkback with artistic staff upon request.
