Maya, a young Salvadoran-American woman, navigates a treacherous terrain of adolescence, personal trauma, and uncovering buried family mythology through magic and folklore as she comes of age in Phoenix, Arizona. Her story explores mother-daughter relationships, mixed race identity, and fantasy as a coping mechanism, while featuring the movement and dance talents of our dynamic cast. This experimental piece incorporates traditional Spanish folk songs and dancing, with live singing performances.
After a two-year hiatus, Summer Circle Theatre (SCT) at Michigan State University is back for its 60th anniversary celebration of FREE outdoor theatre for mid-Michigan audiences and a free week-long theatre camp for kids. This season will include four full productions and runs from June 9 through June 26.
SCT 2022 closes its run with the comedy The Play That Goes Wrong by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields. This 1920s whodunit has accident-prone thespians battling against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call. Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, it is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter. Directed by Brad Willcuts, this show is appropriate for all ages. Performances are June 23, 24, and 25 at 8 p.m. and June 26 at 6:30 p.m.
This 60-year community tradition continues in 2022 thanks to the generous financial contributions of Michigan State University Federal Credit Union, the Rotary Club of East Lansing, Hude Legal Services PLLC, the Michigan State University College of Arts & Letters, and individual donors.
The Summer Circle Courtyard has a tiered, amphitheater-style seating area, but patrons are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets for personal comfort. Free parking is available just across the street from the Auditorium building. Audiences can bring their own picnic or visit our concessions stand. In the event of rain, performances will be moved to the Auditorium.
The evening of June 17 kicks off the four performances of the SCT 2022 Late Night production of White Rabbit Red Rabbit. An actor will be given the script at the time of the performance with no rehearsal and no preparation, as Iranian playwright, Nassim Soleimanpour, examines his status as a censored writer. This show has adult themes. Performances are June 17, 18, 24, and 25 at 10 p.m.
