What does the Ebola virus, Isis, Edward Snowden, Scooby Do, Freddy Mercury, Snow White and the evening news have in common? To find out, come to see Recycled Youth's new show, Channel 707!
The show was written by the 21 talented young actor/creators who make up this year's cast, and these thoughtful teens have a lot to say. Through humor, drama, song, ukelele, spoken word, dance and aerial arts their ideas reflect the scary and changing world in which we live.
On "Channel 707" you can watch "shows" about issues such as our loss of privacy, our addiction to fast food, our obsession with reality shows, the effect of media & technology on society, gender identification, the widespread use of drugs, the power of major corporations to effect how we grow food and the fear of changes in our local economy.
Our show will have full production values such as costumes, makeup, lights, sound and sets thanks to the help of many community members including Margaret Lewis, Jim Fulton, Joe Hiney, Joshua Golden and Carl Hansen. Musicians Andy Barnett and Jeanne York will provide music and sound effects. Thanks to the Mateel Community Center, for its many years of sponsoring the Recycled Youth.
Refreshments will be available at the show, as well as Recycled Youth tee shirts and raffle tickets. You may want to purchase a raffle ticket for prizes including a two night stay and dinner for two at the historic Benbow Inn and two tickets to Reggae on the River which help us raise money to cover our expenses and keep the program going. The doors will open at 7:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 1:30 on Sunday. Tickets are $15 suggested donation for adults and $5 for under 19, available at the door. Please come out and support our youth and theatre in SoHum!
This year's production is funded by The Mateel Community Center, McLean Foundation, Humboldt Area Foundation,
Madeline Coker Memorial Fund, Jake Correll Memorial Fund, & Community Support.
