Seeds Of Change Tickets
Details of Seeds Of Change and the Ticket Luck value
Interplayers Theatre now presents the world premier of the two-act comedy Seeds of Change, by Spokane playwright Craig Rickett. The story centers round three spinster sisters who discover an entirely new world from the arrival of a new next door neighbor, and a rather mysterious package of seeds they receive through the mail. Recommended for all audiences, the performance has been directed by Michael Weaver who Rickett has described to have great comedic sense. Interplayers started out as Spokane Interplayers Ensemble, remaining that way until the retirement of its first artistic director, Joan Welch, after whom its name was changed to Spokane InterPLAYERS. By 2008, it was called Interplayers Professional Theatre and in 2012 it finally took its current title. With this new production, the theatre is looking at a story which is just as funny as it gets while alongside addressing serious issues in society. Among avid theatre-goers, Seeds of Change tickets are the new exciting topic of town-talk.
The three Miller sisters, protagonists of Seeds of Change, are living just bit behind times with their old values and worldviews. Faith, Chastity and Joy, who were raised in an evangelical Nazarene church, are beginning to get ahead in their years but are still stuck in the olden years calendars since their knowledge of the quickly changing modern world is at bay. The three are still living completely according to the demands of their religion while they operate a rundown soup kitchen. Given the basic background it is not hard to figure out the potential of the ensuing comedy strategy and potential as Rickett also points out. The changes pointed at in the title of the play really represent its fish-out-of water- humor-stance with a new neighbor moving in near the sisters, just down the hall and bringing much chaos to their otherwise mundane existence. To put in a nutshell, Rickett has quoted the play to be more of a coming-of-age tale for three characters much beyond adolescence.
Rickett was done writing Seeds of Change in 2010, so that it was processed through workshop though several public script readings two years later. Obviously, the actual experience of watching the script come alive on stage in form of real characters, turned out to be much rewarding than anticipated. The actors brought something unique and absorbing to the characters than Rickett saw coming. The initial cast comprises of Kathie Doyle-Lipe as joy Miller, Maria Caprile as Faith Miller, Mary Starkey as Chastity Miller, Ron Ford as Patrick Donohue, Maxim Chumov as Levi Durbin, and Patrick Treadway as Reggie Coulter. Weaver, who has directed the script, says he was completely taken aback by the story upon the first reading, and loved it. He describes it as 'hilariously funny', loving its concept of why human beings change. According to him the show has given theatre three incredibly memorable comedic characters from the conservative Miller family whose lives are thrown out of whack; they don't wear makeup, don't dance, and don't wear any jewelry providing the storyline with the very basics that will be poked fun at.
Both, the writer and director of Seeds of Change, are quite accomplished and experienced in their own rights, coming from an extensive background in local theatre. Ricket has directed as well as taught theater at Spokane Falls Community College, alongside appeared in The Glass Menagerie in 1999, opposite Patty Duke. Weaver used to be the artistic director at Interplayers alongside which he has appeared as well as directed numerous regional productions. Ricket who is personally connected with the themes of the show, was brought up in Nazarene church but does not practice the religion. He has described the story to be one that is universal in structure. It really is about facing challenges and being more open to change as opposed to be resistant to it. No matter what someone's age, the person cannot use it as an excuse to stop exploring, taking chances and breaking out of defined shells. It is a truly silly, wacky and fun comedy that is an absolute must watch so make sure you grab Seeds of Change tickets in time.
