Beck Teen Theater presents Reckless

February 24, 2012 7:30PM  to  March 4, 2012 3:00PM

Beck Teen Theater presents Reckless by Tony-nominated playwright, Craig Lucas in the Studio Theater, February 24 through March 4, 2012. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays. There is a special 10 a.m. student matinee Thursday, March 1.

Reckless is a dark, but very funny comedy about a modern-day Alice who encounters bizarre characters on her surreal, loop-de-loop adventures through a contemporary Wonderland. Directed by Jonathan Kronenberger, Beck Center’s associate director of theater education, Reckless features a talented cast of 16 teenage actors who are students at the Beck Center. 

At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilt-ridden husband that he has hired a hit man to kill her. Distraught, she flees for her life by scrambling out the bedroom window and into the snowy night. Rachel’s journey takes her from town to town where she meets a variety of crazy, colorful characters and encounters an endless series of incredible coincidences. In the end, she realizes that we lead reckless lives in which “things just happen,” but her optimistic outlook allows her to keep making the best of it.

Tickets are $12 for Adult/Senior (65 and over) and $10 for Children/Student (18 and under).
