Peppermint Creek announces 2009-2010 season

By |2018-01-16T08:18:47-05:00September 10th, 2009|Entertainment|

Peppermint Creek is presenting plays that tell stories about issues that matter to you: questions about identity (“Ten Things You Shouldn’t Say Past Midnight”), trying to reconcile and purge our past wrongs (“The Seafarer”), how religion and spirituality can often be misinterpreted (“Altar Boyz”), the misuses of the internet in today’s age (“Dark Play, or Stories for Boys”), and grappling with our prejudices about status, life choices and knowledge (“Third”)

With their upcoming season, Peppermint Creek promises to remain a major force on the Greater Lansing theater scene, and to stay true to its mission to produce contemporary and classic theater that addresses vital issues in our society, raises awareness and encourages dialogue while entertaining. Auditions for the 09-10 Season will be held Aug. 26-27 at Karyn’s Dance Place, 4462 Holt Road. Auditionees should call 517-927-3016 to schedule a five-minute audition time slot.
