(Carson, CA.) California State University, Dominguez Hills’ (CSUDH) Department of Theatre and Dance will present its production of the musical comedy “Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play.” The livestream will take place May 6, 7, and 8 at 7 p.m. in the University Theatre.
Written by Anne Washburn, with music by Michael Friedman and lyrics by Anne Washburn, “Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play,” tells the story of a group of post-apocalyptic survivors recalling and retelling “Cape Feare,” an episode of the television show “The Simpsons.”
The livestream of “Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play” takes place May 6, 7, and 8 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 per performance. To reserve a ticket, visit https://www.csudh.edu/theatre-arts/buy-tickets/. The play is intended for a mature audience.
The three-act play explores how the stories we tell make us the people we are, explodes the boundaries between pop and high culture and – when society has crumbled – imagines the future for television’s favorite cartoon family.
“Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play” features the musical direction of Jared Scott and the choreography of Robert Laos, and is directed by Theatre Arts faculty member Naomi Buckley. It is the Department of Theatre and Dance’s final theatrical production of the 2020-21 season.
“’Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play’ perfectly captures the deep power of storytelling and how it might persist even in our darkest days,” says Buckley.
