The Contemporary Youth Arts Company returns to the West Virginia State University Capitol Center Theater tonight, to debut “Bert Hellmunn Fights The Demons Of The Stage.”

The new play, written and directed by Dan Kehde, is described as a “sexy farce about a playwright and the pursuit of happiness.”  The titular role belongs to Donnie Smith (right). We here at PopCult have been blown away by Kehde’s work in the past, and we can’t wait to see this new project.

The cast includes many CYAC veterans, including Nik Tidquist, Jaclyn Cobb, Heather Newhouse, Sean Price, Kim Waybright Lauren Mallory, Jenny Totten, Robbie Hughes and Montana Rock.

Show Dates are July 22 through 24 and 29 through 31 at the West Virginia State  University Capitol Center Theater 123 Summers Street, Charleston

Each performance starts at 8 p.m. with tickets available at the door the evenings of the performances  Tickets are $5.50 for students and seniors (65 plus) and $9.50 for adults.
