June 11, 2019 Student Actors Shine in the College's Latest Play

Three friends go for a weekend trip. That’s the frame story for Lost and Found: Twisted Fairy Tales, the latest student-created play produced by the Capital BlueCross Theatre. 

Instead of rest and relaxation, however; the three women––played by Marnie Baker, Tabitha Dougherty and Brianna McCoy––experience something much more profound… a journey through a troubled past as they grapple with ghosts and goblins, conjured up from their own “twisted” imaginations.

Lost and Found debuted last week, playing Thursday through Saturday.  

The play explores some tough issues, such as addiction, broken family bonds and self-hatred, with a deft touch, thanks to some comic relief brought mainly by Parker Rose, who played 10 roles, including Rumpelstiltskin. 

Nda Shala, as the mysterious Journey Woman, serves as a mentor figure, dispensing advice and guiding the characters to embrace their emotional truth as well as to change self-defeating behavior. 

Kudos to Theatre Director Janet Bixler and the five student actors for creating such a thought-provoking, touching and fun work of devised theatre!
