Imagination Stage’s newest Early Childhood offering, Blue, comes from Honolulu Theatre for Youth (2012) and playwright Annie Cusick Wood. It will be directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer, the Associate Artistic Director of Imagination Stage and creator of My First Imagination Stage. Blue, best for ages 1-5, takes place in a world where blue is the only color. Blue flowers, blue grass, even blue cereal! Inky Blue and Pale Blue live in such a world until they discover something RED! In this interactive show, Inky and Pale play with humor, whimsy, and all the colors of the rainbow.
Actors Phil Reid and Jack Novak will play Inky and Pale Blue, respectively. Phil was last seen at Imagination Stage in Aquarium, Lyle the Crocodile, Helen Hayes Award-Winning Anime Momotaro, and Dr, Dolittle. Jack makes his Imagination Stage debut after performing with Nu Sass Productions, Faction of Fools, NextStop, and the Source Festival.
“This lovely piece gently introduced children to the idea that “different” is good. Set in a garden, and using simple props, children will interact with Inky and Pale as they learn that life in their blue world may be limiting,” says Director Kathryn Chase Bryer. She is “curious to watch these characters impart the concepts of sharing and understanding to our youngest patrons, using all the colors of the rainbow!”
Kathryn Chase Bryer is joined by a creative team including Timothy Guillot (Composer), Patrick Calhoun (Sound Designer), RuthMarie Tenorio (Scenic Designer), Collin Ranney (Costume Designer), Zachary Gilbert (Lighting Designer), and Nicholas Vargas (Assistant Director).
