Tickets for “Hush: An Interview with America” will go on sale to the general public on Monday, March 19, at the Casper College Gertrude Krampert Theatre Complex in Casper.
The play, written by James Still, tells the story of Maggie Parks, an 11 year-old who lives with her father in the small town of Hush, Kansas. ”Maggie has such a vivid imagination that she becomes famous. Eventually though, her celebrity status is so overwhelming that she nearly loses her imagination,” said Richard Burk, director.
When an enterprising news personality “discovers” Maggie, and tries to celebrate her ability, the girl is overwhelmed and nearly loses her imagination. Fortunately, through the support of a lion, lamb, and a
spirit named Eve, Maggie is able to reclaim her imagination.
For Burk, the play appeared at just the right time in his life, and provided the director with what he calls “the assuring project of hope.” The character of Maggie “is young, idealistic, and her future is only filled with potential. She has the ability to be at home in her imagination.”
”Hush: An Interview with America” will be performed on the McMurry Mainstage. The family-friendly play will run March 22 through 24 and March 28 through 31 each night beginning at 7:30. A matinee will be held on Sunday, April 1 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students ages 5 to 18. Tickets can be purchased at the Krampert Theatre Complex box office between 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Friday, by phone at 268-2500, or one hour before each performance, for that performance only.
