Christ School Theater presents:

Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind (30 plays in 60 minutes) by Greg Allen

May 11-14, 2017

Pingree Theater

Doors open at 7:09 pm for registration, games, and snacks

Seating when we feel like it—around 7:30 pm

Christ School Theater’s Spring production is the experimental Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.  Written by the Neo-Futurists, a Chicago-based improv company, Too Much Light… is a zany ensemble experiment that attempts to present “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” Each two-minute play is performed in random order chosen by an interactive audience. The onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest.  Can the Neo-Futurist Players get all 30 plays performed before the clock runs out? Come see May 11-14. Pingree Theater Stage. CS Campus.

The Neo-Futurist Performing Company member are Ms. Sarah Baldwin, Daniel Beale, Townshend Budd, Connor Booher, Preston Coleman, Eli Dowler, Zach Grella, George Xavian Janvier, Alyi McLoughlan, Kobi Selby, and Trevor Youtz.  Lighting Artist Joe deLoach, grooving Sound Man Braxton Poole, and Mop Boy Deluxe Max Brodeur are the Neo-Futurist Technical Team.  Overseeing the production is the Grand High Neo-Futurist Director, Mary Dillon.

Prepare to be surprised, delighted, enlightened, and perhaps pulled onto stage.  Only 65 seats will be available each night so makes plans to come early to get a seat token. Admission is free- but you just might pay with your soul (or get wet…).
