Runaways | Raleigh Little Theatre | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: July 17-26 2015
Price: $11




In the summertime, most kids go to swimming pools or camps. Theater kids go to conservatory. Raleigh Little Theatre and PlayMakers Repertory Company sponsor the two largest summer programs in the region: multi-week intensives that combine classes in acting, voice and movement with rehearsals for a major Broadway musical. The shows they'll each produce this summer focus on New York, though you'd hardly recognize the place between the two. Raleigh Little Theatre's Runaways is the more compelling offering. Elizabeth Swados collected the stories of real-life adolescent runaways on the streets of New York City in 1978, crafting them into songs and scenes that depicted what these children were running from—and the horrors they were running toward. PlayMakers' Guys and Dolls (July 1525,, that Damon Runyon chestnut from 1950, is a romanticized period piece focused on the original original gangsters—the chiselers, hustlers, gamblers and assorted hoods who made the New York underworld such a colorful place in the 1920s and '30s.—Byron Woods
