Event: Dream Catchers
New play, Dream Catchers May 2 and 3 at 7:30pm -- Free Admission, Donations are welcome In a countdown to graduation, nine teenagers struggle to catch their dreams as they are faced with the daunting questions of who they are and what comes after high school. Amidst the drama of grad preparations, gossip and judgment soar with the Facebook reveal of Edward bragging about having had sex with Michelle. From this, the characters grapple with the consequences of society’s double standards regarding sex and the unexpected emotional consequences. Dream Catchers shows the importance of thinking before we act and being aware of how our words and actions affect others and ourselves.
