NORTH HAVEN, Conn. – February 23, 2017 – As part of its Family Night Series, the Energize Connecticut Center will host the debut performance of ‘Earth Day, Every Day’ on Friday, March 24. The event will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Energize Connecticut Center, 122 Universal Drive North, North Haven (next to Panera Bread in the Target Plaza). It is free of charge and open to the public.
‘Earth Day, Every Day’ was written by Eastern Connecticut State University alumna and Ellington resident Deborah Stauffer, who won the 2016 eesmarts Student Contest’s ‘Wright the World’ college category. The play follows Roger Recycle, Penelope Precycle, Elmer Energy, Chadwick Composter and Scarlet Upcycle as they audition for a special ‘Earth Day’ commercial broadcast. During the course of their audition, they try to convince the director that they are the best solution for conserving energy and resources.
By the end, the characters realize that each of them play important roles in conserving the planet, and that they need each other to make the world a better place. After the performance, guests can make themed crafts using recycled materials and explore the Energize Connecticut Center’s interactive exhibits.
“I am excited to see my script come to life and help children understand the importance of finding green solutions and being energy efficient,” said Mrs. Stauffer. “The whimsical characters are not only fun to watch, but they also share valuable lessons on teamwork and community.”
Following its debut, ‘Earth Day, Every Day’ will visit schools and education centers throughout the state over the next three weeks. Another public performance will be held on Earth Day, April 22, at Eastern Connecticut State University.
The play is directed by Shane William Kegler, a graduate of Eastern Connecticut State University and the Capitol Theatre Arts Academy’s Director and Theater Educator, and the cast and crew includes: ECSU Theatre alumni Stephanie Madden, Ben Donnell, Alexis Kurtz, Calvin Gee, Dan Fernandez, Elizabeth Swan, Olivia Beaullan, Jordan Merrill, Kinde Queenan, Kate Prozesky, and NYU graduate Aiden Eastwood.
