It’s a MYSTERY…why Parents and Kids have never been on stage together in a Young People’s Theater show…UNTIL NOW!

The SAF Young People’s Theater is famous for its innovative, non-traditional theater, and they’re upping the ante as they present the 1st Annual Parent/Kid play: “The World’s Most Mysterious Mystery!”

The play, a 1940’s film noir-esque thriller penned and directed by YPT Artistic Director Jen Julia, features Detective Don Underwood, a seasoned gumshoe and his rookie partner, Lt. Laverne Shirley. They’re hot on the trail of a mysterious criminal, the crook who poisoned Gloria Vanderbasher, the glamorous billionairess. There are a slew of suspects, including Hollywood movie star Norma Diamond, paperboy Jimmy O’Reilly, Southern belle Cookie Van Creme and many more. It’s a nail-biting mystery that will have audience members on the edge of their seats (and rolling in the aisles).

“Putting parents and kids together on stage gives them the chance to share the magic of theater in a relaxed and supportive setting. In this play, the kids will be able to show their parents the ropes as they play the leading roles. And it will be so much fun to see all of these family members performing together — especially in the big dance finale number. This show is not to be missed!” said Artistic Director Jen Julia.

This cast includes parents Josh Borof, James and Stanya Gorraiz, Skye and Eric Guina, Marla Meredith, Mary Rubadeau, Danita Strand, Amy Tice and Monica Warren. Kids in the show are Wiley Borof; Pippa and Kaizer Gorraiz; Maddie, Leela Meredith; Macy and Merrick McRobert; Evan Strand; Tatum Tice and Kiara Warren.

The show will be performed just ONCE on Saturday, September 27, at 7 p.m. The play is a fundraiser for the SAF Young People’s Theater scholarship fund. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under.

There will be a special fundraising cocktail party (with free babysitting!) for a $25 a person that includes wine and admission to the show, at 6:30 the night of the show. Please visit our website to reserve your tickets to both the play and cocktail party today.

Since 1999, the historic Sheridan Opera House has been home to Young People’s Theater, a diverse and flourishing center for young thespians, enrolling more than 200 children between the ages of 2 and 18 each year.

The Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded in 1991 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization to preserve the historic Sheridan Opera House as an arts and cultural resource for the Telluride community, to bring quality arts and cultural events to Telluride and to provide local and national youth with access and exposure to the arts through education. The Sheridan Arts Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the Telluride Foundation and CCAASE.
