Mountain View High School in Orem is performing a stage adaptation I did for them of a James Christensen art storybook called VOYAGE OF THE BASSET. It’s playing Thur, Fri, Sat @ 7p (Jan 15, 16, 17) in their auditorium. I did the first draft of the adaptation in Suzan Zeder’s class 16 years ago when I was getting my masters at the University of Texas but the rights were tied up with a Hallmark film version at the time. Mountain View was able to get rights to do a “readers theatre” version rather than a fully staged version, but did get rights to use the projections, so the project has been a great experiment for the advanced drama class in creating an experimental, multimedia performance mode.
