BOCA RATON, FL– One show into their sixth season, and heading towards their final production at West Boca High, Slow Burn Theatre Company will present Edges, a musical, for a special two-night run December 18th and 19th, 2014 as a joint fundraiser with the West Boca Drama Department. Tickets are $20.
“We’ve always been grateful to West Boca for taking a chance on us way back when and giving us a start.” says Matthew Korinko, Executive Director of Slow Burn Theatre Company. “And though it’s a collective effort between us with every show we do, we thought it would be great to end this year with an event that can benefit us both.”
Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul in the form of a contemporary song cycle, Edges is a charming and witty examination of some of the many and varied trials of adulthood – touching on such universal issues as love, commitment, identity, and meaning. The musical explores the questions four young adults face as they come of age and seek simple truths in a complex world: how many other people also spend Friday nights at home on Facebook; or what to do when your boyfriend likes theatre and flower arranging a little bit too much! With warmth and humor, the musical vignettes follow them on a journey of confronting emotions, escaping expectation, and deciphering complicated relationships.
The cast of Edges includes: Abby Perkins, Nicole Piro, Carbonell Award nominee Bruno Vida, and Alexander Zenoz. It will be directed by Carbonell and Silver Palm Award winner Patrick Fitzwater, with musical direction by Carbonell Award winner Eric Alsford.
Slow Burn Theatre Company is an award winning locally based professional theatre group providing the South Florida community the opportunity to see daring, contemporary and intelligent works of musical theater.
Edges will run for only TWO performances only – Thursday and Friday December 18 & 19, 2014 at 8 PM at the West Boca Performing Arts Theater on the campus of West Boca Raton High School on Glades Road. Tickets are $20 and are available at the door each night, at http://slowburntheatre.org or by calling 866-811-4111.
