Nashville’s teen-owned and operated Real Life Players perform “STRANDED"
April 28 - April 30, 2011
Nashville’s teen-owned and operated Real Life Players (RLP) will perform their original work “STRANDED” April 28th - 30th at 7pm at the Darkhorse Theater located at 4610 Charlotte Ave. All ticket proceeds will go to 3 Nashville charities, The MAGDELENE HOUSE, CASA-Court Appointed Special Advocates, and WALDEN’S POND.
2011 marks RLP’s 16th year as Nashville’s only independent, teen-owned and operated theatre company. “STRANDED” is a comedic look at how negative thoughts and fears leave us frozen & stranded.
Over 80 Nashville teens have participated in RLP the past 16 years, writing, producing, and performing plays which confront real life issues in comedic ways. Past productions include “Who Wants to be God,” (2010) ,“Gender Bender,” (2009) and “CAMO” (2008), which dealt with physical disabilities experienced after one troup member was left severely injured during a school wrestling match.
Eleven youth from seven Nashville schools, ages 14-19, form 2011’s RLP cast & crew, who chose The MAGDELENE HOUSE, a residential community for women with a history of prostitution and drug addiction, CASA-Court Appointed Special Advocates, and WALDEN’S POND, a wildlife rehabilitation center, from nominations posted on their Facebook page. Audience members will be able to select one charity to benefit from their ticket. So the more people who attend, the more RLP can give.
