ELLENSBURG – Avril Martinez, a 2008 graduate of Sunnyside High School, will work on the sound design crew for Central Washington University’s Central Theatre Ensemble production of “Polaroid Stories” to be staged the next two weekends.
Martinez is a junior in the bachelor of fine arts-design and production program. She previously attended Columbia Basin College.
“Polaroid Stories,” by Naomi Iizuka, explores the fluid nature of truth, told through the experiences of street kids, society’s throwaways.
Performed by Central Washington University’s Central Theatre Ensemble, the play will draw audience members into the turbulent world of homeless youth, for whom truth is a shifting wasteland of broken promises.
“Polaroid Stories” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. tonight and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday), as well as Thursday through Saturday, March 13 through 15, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 16, at the Milo Smith Tower Theatre.
General admission is $12, $10 for seniors and students, and $7 for CWU students with ID.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.cwu.edu/theatre/tickets, by phone at 509-963-1429, or in person at the welcome center on University Way or the Wildcat Shop customer service desk in the student union recreation center.
The play is intended for mature audiences only, and includes language and situations some patrons may consider offensive. There is some material that is unsuitable for children under 17.
Parking at CWU is free after 4:30 p.m., and on weekends, except in specially designated spaces and residence hall lots.
