Olathe South Thespian Troupe #5006 will be performing Trap on October 26-28 at 7pm in the Auditorium. This is the world premiere of a new play by Stephen Gregg. Two year’s ago, we premiered Mr. Gregg’s last play, Crush, on the main stage at the International Thespian Festival. This October, we will be have Trap adjudicated to perform on main stage at the Kansas Thespian Festival and the International Thespian Festival.
This play is based on interviews after an incident in a high school theatre in Menachap, California. These interviews were filmed and the play's performances are based on those interviews as well as on available primary sources including letters, newspaper articles, recordings, and security camera footage.
Trap is in the performance style of The Laramie Project, with the feel of The Blair Witch Project, and the acting technique of Anna Deavere Smith’s Twilight.
As Mr. Gregg says, “Everybody has to come and nobody’s allowed to leave.”
And … “It’s theatre that should be scary.”
Tickets are now on sale. All seats are reserved. We anticipate large crowds and would suggest you buy your tickets before the night of the show.
