Two TYA Plays Head to San Diego schools

Becca 1

This summer and fall I’ve had the great¬†fortune to collaborate with Judy Bauerlein and her energetic, generous students at California State University San Marcos to bring two TYA plays based on Greek myths to elementary schools around San Diego and North County. Last week the first play, CAPTAIN BECCA THE FEARED BUCCANEER (based on the myth of Dionysos and the Pirates), premiered, and Judy’s students are hard at work rehearsing the second play, ROSY-FINGERED DAWN AND THE WINGED SANDALS (based on the myth of Eos and the Grasshopper). Thanks to the wonderful creative team–Rebecca Dennis (director of CAPTAIN BECCA), Janet O’Neill, Elisa Benzoni and Julie Burelle–and to Judy, her students, and the theatre department at CSUSM.
