NEW WORKS in a ONE-ACT PLAY FESTIVAL at Hanford Multicultural Theater Company’s new location. Featuring plays by Kenny Sides, Linda Amayo-Hassan, Elaine Burruss, and Silvia Gonzalez S. Also, this is a PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT event!
First piece is THE LETTER by Kenny Sides. Kenny’s original interest was in film but acting and writing became an interest. The piece is short with a delightful ending. He performs it himself.
Linda Amayo-Hasson is a past participant of the Indigenous Voices Playwright Workshop which was held last November in Hanford. We had to do her piece TORNADO TRAIN again. Sarah McCullough from NAS-Lemoore, and Salma Alatorre, from Hanford High West, recreate their roles. The piece is about an Indigenous girl from the Kickapoo Tribe who was taken up in a tornado and thrown to a woman needing redemption. Question is, will she take it.
Elaine Burruss is from Porterville and has been part of our HMTC acting classes for nearly a year. She wrote and will perform her short piece LADY LIKE in a monologue stand-up comedy fashion.
T (FOR TORTURE) is performed by Gabriel Omar and Jason Boado, both of Lemoore. This piece was first performed in Chicago and now here at the Lil’ Brick stage at HMTC. The question the audience must ask themselves is whether it is the mind, or the body that is being tortured. A unique play that will have you wondering if you entered a Dali painting or walked into a theater.
Tickets are PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT and are available online at www.HanfordMTC.com or at the door at our new place 119 ½ North Douty in old downtown Hanford. Additional information on social media @HanfordMTC. Four shows in one weekend, 3PM and 7PM on July 1st and July 2nd.
Our outreach is supported in part by the California Arts Council
