The World Premiere Of THE POST OFFICE
THE POST OFFICE is the story of Ash (Alexis Bitner, Olympus High School), a child suffering from a mysterious illness. Despite being confined at home by the doctor, she remains hopeful, winning over strangers with her positive attitude and ability to imagine a better life for herself.
THE POST OFFICE is performed by 12 high school students representing Cottonwood, Granger, Kearns, Olympus and Taylorsville High Schools (all in Granite School District) and directed by Adam Wilkins, the drama teacher at Cottonwood High School.
The goal of THE POST OFFICE project is to engage a community of immigrant, refugee and citizen students to create a piece of theatre together as a companion piece to the United Nations Civil Society Conference.
In addition to the acting roles, there will be student dramaturgy, stage management and student-created show art; as well as shadow opportunities with the director and each member of the design team: Madeline Ashton (set), Cheryl Cluff (sound), Pilar I (lighting) Maddiey Howell-Wilkins (costumes).
100% of proceeds benefit Adopt-A-Future, a program of the United Nations Association, providing direct support for refugee education at the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya. You can make a direct donation to Kakuma at the ticket link below.
