Our Thirteenth Season
2017–2018
Retrospective

 

Celia, A Slave
September 2017

While set in the past, this unflinching, brutally honest play is relevant to many of the issues facing our nation to this day.
—Andrew Brown, Arizona Public Media

Images and thoughts from Celia keep tapping on my shoulder unexpectedly since Friday.
—Christopher Wendel, Audience Member

Incredible, important, and heart breaking.
—Chrysta Faye, Audience Member

Friends, do something for your soul and go see Celia, A Slave,
a most-timely and remarkable production by the The Rogue Theatre,
written by our very own Barbara Seyda, a brilliant genius.
Actors are fully embodied and incredible, choreography by Barbea Williams is magic,
music by Jake Sorgen and Vicki Brown lifts the theatre,
and incredible direction and staging by Cynthia Meier brings to life the cruelty and grace of a horrific era.
A story set in 1855 Missouri could not have more relevance to every year that followed, including this one.
Art is what we need. Go see it.
—Kimi Eisele, Audience Member

 

Producer Andrew Brown of Arizona Public Meida has created a nine-minute video on Celia, A Slave,
with footage from two rehearsals and interviews with actors and the director.

A pure joy to watch.
—Arizona Daily Star

Theatre magic!
—Joyce Smith, Audience Member

Brilliant.
—Kathleen Schwartzman, Audience Member

A fun and memorable and provocative play.
Thank you. Vivid, lovely costumes.
Your button sewing division deserves some time off.
—Greg Hart, Audience Member

It was a terrific play produced brilliantly.
