Theatre Academy Field Trip

Thanks to an ongoing friendship with the Mark Taper Forum, students were able to watch a preview of Water by the Spoonful.

The stage, and playbook for Water By The SpoonfulLACC Theatre Academy students found themselves lucky, sitting in prime seats at the Mark Taper Forum on Thursday night. They went to go see Water by the Spoonful, a play written by Quiara Alegría Hudes. It is the second in this playwright's trilogy of works, the first being Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue and the closing one being The Happiest Song Plays Last. The show was incredible in many ways, the set was filled with modern adaptations like projections and the best part, rain actually descending on the stage in the end into a gape in the stage. The actors were very involved in their show and some favorite moments were the hilarious cynical chatroom scenes between former crack cocaine addicts. A show about love, pain, and the extent one goes and can suffer for family is examined in this show. Students even got a chance to meet one of the actors while leaving the theatre and were discussing the play for hours after. Water by the Spoonful will show until March 11, 2018, so get your tickets fast!
