SCCT Youth Theatre to perform live at Main St. Plaza
Free 30 minute play – “BUG” Goats vs Trolls
[SILVER CITY, NM, December 11-12, 2021] — Live, outdoor theatre returns with
“Bug”, by Lainie Vansant. A fresh take on the Three Billy Goats Gruff. “Bug” is the story
of a sensitive teenaged troll who is being bullied to eat a goat. This 30 minute play will
be performed by the SCCT Youth Theatre Project actors at Main Street Plaza on
December 11 and 12 at 3:00 pm. Performances are free (donations requested).
Director Brenda McFarlane advises audiences to dress warmly.
The young cast (ages 13-18) has been meeting weekly since July. “We’ve been holding
guerilla-like outdoor rehearsals and workshops throughout town every Sunday,” explains
McFarlane; “Covid has presented incredible challenges but theatre is a flexible art and
teenagers are uniquely suited to adjust fast to new situations. This production of Bug is
the result.” The cast includes Savanna Egge, Makayla Jaurequi, Christian Kilgore, Mia
Riley, and Jules Stites are members of the Goat Family; Monte Valenzuela and Eva
Engstrom are the bullying Trolls; and Teneal Solberg takes on the title role of “Bug”.
The SCCT Youth Project's goal is to empower young people with the ability to express
themselves through theatre and public presentation. This is a free program. Project
Director, Brenda McFarlane, produced and directed her own plays in Toronto, Los
Angeles and New York. She specializes in new works and collaborative creations.
She emphasizes social responsibility and heartfelt theatre that matters
to the audience and the artists involved.
The cast of “Bug” was supported by Project Assistant, Wendy Spurgeon, a drama
teacher at Aldo Leopold Charter School, and hostess of SCCT Radio Hour on KURU
89.1 FM. “Brenda and I are so proud to support this talented young cast as they bring
live, outdoor theatre performances back to Silver City”, says Spurgeon. “Chairs are
provided, to be placed by family groups for appropriate distance and comfort.”
“Bug” plays at 3:00 pm on Dec. 11 and 12 on the Main St. Plaza, located off of
Bullard St. between 7th and 8th streets next to Big Ditch Park in Silver City, NM.
