California Stage Theater Creations and Kit Carson, an International Baccalaureate World School present Suzan L. Zeder’s “Wiley and the Hairy Man”
Set deep within the mysterious Tombigbee Swamp, the story is a spine-tingling tale of a boy, his worst fears and the Hairy Man who haunts Wiley’s days and dreams.
Through rhythm and rhyme, the magic of this play is not fairy dust, it is soil — the magic of survival, the magic of the earth and the mud of the swamp. In a duel of wits, Wiley learns to rely upon his own resources to conquer the Hairy Man…and his own fear.

This workshop focuses on how to make strong choices, how to prepare and how serve the text to create the most beneficial performance. Continue reading →
