Play12 Performance Company Applications Now Open | Fall 2022

What is Play12?

Play12 is the Lawrence Arts Center’s youth performance company. It expands on the fundamentals of acting and focuses on the development of production, creation, community, and leadership skills through public performance.

The fall 2022 semester will focus on developing an original production, Pulp Fiction: Music Friction, alongside professional actors, musicians, and dancers. Each member will have an opportunity to write, design, and/or perform in this professional production that will open to the public on the Lawrence Arts Center’s mainstage. Rehearsals, tech week (10/24-10/26), and performances outside of class time (10/27-10/29) will be required. To join PLAY12 this session, please email Elizabeth Sullivan at by September 11.

Description of the Show:

Indulge your senses in an original, live and interactive music performance inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 film, Pulp Fiction.  Pull up a seat at Jack Rabbit Slim’s diner, co-conspire with Honey Bunny, and participate in a twist dance contest in an action-packed, live music performance.  Celebrate this cult movie classic by coming dressed as your favorite character for this wonderful and bizarre postmodern theatrical experience.
