High school, chaos, art, and a marching band come together in Phantom Band, which opens at Walden Theatre tomorrow.
Phantom Band will be performed on Nov. 10 and 11 at 8 p.m., and on Nov. 12, 17, 18, and 19 at 7:30 p.m. each night. Matinee shows, meanwhile, will take place on Nov. 12 and 19 at 2 p.m. each day. All performances will take place on the Nancy Miles Sexton stage at Walden Theatre, located at 1123 Payne Street in the Highlands section of Louisville.
Ticket prices depend on the show. Evening performance tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students, and $10 for senior citizens. Matinee performance tickets, meanwhile, are $10 for adults, $8 for students, and $8 for senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased by calling Walden Theatre at 589-0084.
Keep in mind Phantom Band does contain mature language and situations.
Art created from the chaos that is high school forms the center of Phantom Band, A high school student brings together a group of people from opposite areas of the high school scene (a la Breakfast Club) to form a marching band. The band is falling apart just as an unusual violinist/exchange student shows up. High school issues and a sense of humor are also thrown into the mix.
Krista Knight created the production, and following the Nov. 12 matinee show, Knight will be part of a free talkback and reception. Complimentary desserts and coffee will be provided.
Alec Volz, meanwhile, directed Phantom Band.
Phantom Band is a part of Walden Theatre's Slant Culture Series, which is aimed at presenting works from emerging playwrights. The works allow the Walden Theatre students to draw from their personal experiences to bring the characters to life on stage. .
Walden Theatre will return in 2012 with performances of Julius Caesar in January. More information on the Walden Theatre season can be found at its website.
