"The Sparrow"

The Scottsdale Conservatory Theatre Company of 2013 presents "The Sparrow," written by Chris Mathews, Jake Minton and Nathan Allen.

The play, directed by SCC's Theatre Arts director Randy Messersmith, is free (with reserved tickets) and open to the public.

The story centers on Emily Book (played by second-year SCT student Sarah Zorman), the lone survivor of a horrible school bus accident, who was sent away from the tiny town of Spring Farm. Now, in her senior year, Emily must return in order to graduate from high school. When she arrives, she is unwillingly thrust into the whirlwind of Spring Farm High and must use her telekinetic powers to save a friend.

"The Sparrow" taps into the fundamental aching of adolescence -- fearing that we're somehow different while hoping that we're special.

Appropriate for all ages.

Now in its 26th season, the Scottsdale Conservatory Theatre is a five-week summer program that offers an exciting opportunity for acting students to earn college credit while studying with professional actors who are currently working in the field.

Students take classes in stage movement, mask, voice and diction, text analysis, character development and scene study. All students have performance opportunities alongside professional actors working in the industry in the fully produced main stage production during the program's final week.
