All summer long, the teen students of our Summer Studio have been hard at work on The Feathers, an original play adapted from the classic Greek comedy The Birds…with a unique twist. Given the basic outline of the classic text, these students have written the remainder of the play themselves, including the addition of music and hip hop dance. We asked a few of our teen Lin-Manuel Mirandas to describe in one sentence why you should see The Feathers, and here’s what they had to say:
“Come see The Feathers because it is a whirlwind of witty humor and commentary and current events.” -Julia C
“Want to see Hamilton but you live on the West Coast? The Feathers is the next best thing!” -Niall S
“Come see The Feathers because it is full of sarcasm and knee-slappers that will stick in your head and keep you laughing for weeks!” -Tania M
“Watch The Feathers because it’s one big party!” -Kelli O
“Come to The Feathers and watch me drop a sick beat.” -Maddie B
“Come watch The Feathers to see fun dancing and singing!” -Kristen L
The Feathers can be seen Wednesday, August 10 and Thursday, August 11 at 7pm at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto. We hope to see you there!
