Charleston’s Contemporary Youth Arts Company presents its annual monologue production of BOXES this weekend, starting tonight at The WVSU Capitol center Theater. “Boxes” is a collection of monologues written by Dan Kehde and performed by an ensemble of the area’s brightest young actors, aged 13 to 26. This year the monologues are a “Best of” assortment, presenting a selection of works from the last 18 years. The above clip was made by Austin Susman
The show opens tonight at 8 PM and runs through Saturday night at the WVSU Capitol Center Theater, 123 Summers Street, in Charleston. The cast includes Caitlin Moore, Julianna Spradling, Sarah Mandirola, Gage Snodgrass, Anna Poole, Haley Arthur, Olivia King, Nik Tidquist, Celeste Vingle, Hanna Peterson, Ellie Paybins, Carrie Jo Rader, and Austin Thomas.
Tickets will be available at the door and the price is $15, or $8 for seniors or students. You can call the box office at 304-342-6522 for more details, reservations and group rates. Next week Kehde’s new play, the provocatively-titled “Joseph, Mother of Jesus” opens.
