The Academy Of The Company Theatre Conservatory Presents THE WEREWOLVES

The Academy Of The Company Theatre Conservatory Presents THE WEREWOLVES

The Academy of the company Theatre (A.C.T.) Conservatory presents the regional premiere of the original play The Werewolves, written by A.C.T. student and Scituate playwright Alex Moon, on Friday, May 18 and Saturday May 19, 7:30 pm at the company Theatre Center for the Arts, 30 Accord Park Drive, Norwell. The production is directed by Kevin Mark Kline.

The Werewolves is an original, riveting one-act play, based on true stories, about a skilled company of Hitler youth cadets. During the waning months of World War II, in an effort to conserve their remaining armies, the officers of the Third Reich put their Hitlerjugend to the test. After the boys undergo a grim transformation into a squadron of SS guerrilla operatives to be sent behind enemy lines, they are left on their own. As their situation deteriorates and tensions flare, they discover the harsh reality of their Nazi idealism. The Werewolves premiered at Repertory Theatre in New York City during the summer of 2017. Contains adult content.

Teen playwright, director and performing artist Alex Moon's young career began in his freshman year at Scituate High School, where he penned his first play, Eris' Chain. Now a graduating senior, he has written and directed multiple new works; including dramas, comedies, musicals, one acts and short plays. Most recently he directed his own work The Wreck of the Silence, a short play created for the Massachusetts Educational Theatre Guild 2018 High School Festival. The dramatic work, featuring American Sign Language (ASL), follows a single sailor left deafened and stranded after a great sea battle, as he tries to find his way back to his home and family. Moon has collaborated with organizations across Boston and the South Shore, including American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, the company Theatre in Norwell, Massasoit Theatre Company in Brockton, Artists from Suburbia and Hanover's Blue River Drama. Moon is committed to bringing a lively new voice into the theatrical community, pushing the boundaries of contemporary drama with the help of his fellow artists. This fall, he'll begin studying Dramatic Writing at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
