Still, this show, presented by the Community College of Denver, is not for children, despite being about children; there’s a double murder, a suicide and lots of stage blood. “The show certainly gets people talking,” Dickert says, “about the nature of identity and how difficult it is when you are speaking from the margins of society. “Fourth grade is a pretty awkward age,” he adds. “You’re still a child with lots of energy, running all around, but you’re also negotiating what it means to be an adult and dealing with issues of independence.”
The show opened last week and continues tomorrow night and Thursday at the Black Box Theater in the King Center on the Auraria campus. It starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $4 for students and $6 for the general public. Call 303-556-2296 to get yours.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 14. Continues through Nov. 21, 2013
