'Sex Ed. What Wasn’t Covered' theater production begins Nov. 14

Submitted by Britt Burr

"Sex Ed. What Wasn’t Covered," a theater production written and directed by Britt Burr, drama therapy graduate student, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14, 15, 16 and Dec. 1 in observance of World AIDS Day. All performance will be in the Purple Masque Theater in 103 East Stadium.

The performance is free, with donations going to AIDS research. There is a sneak peek of the performance on YouTube.

Through the interviewing process, Burr found as a community, individuals were firmly and solidly educated on the safe sex practices regarding heterosexual intimacy, but it was not until early — and even late — adulthood that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning individuals are educated in the matter of safe same-sex practices. This production will shine light on the need for such education within schools.

A "talk-back" — where the audience has a chance to meet the cast and crew and ask questions — will follow each performance. A guest speaker also will be present each evening during the talk-back. They will provide their own perspective or stories as well as opinions revolving around the performance.

Please spread the word to colleagues and friends about attending.

Cast includes:

  • Teacher: La Vonne Canfield
  • Trevor, actor 2: Michael Bugner
  • Drew, actor 1: Cory Jennett 
  • Kyler, student 2, roommate: Katie Kinzel
  • Julia, student 5, actor 3, Mother: Sydney Normile
  • Kim, student 4, actor 4: Maria Arvanitakis 
  • Tanner, student 1: James Ryan Roberts, or J. Ryan
