NOW PLAYING AT THE VORTEX
The VORTEX’s Summer Youth Theatre presents a contemporary adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People. The timely environmental statement in An Enemy of the People focuses on the contamination of the economic jewel of the town and its focus of cultural tourism: “The Springs”. Written in 1882, the play centers on the politics of greed and corruption that ultimately damage our natural treasures. This summer, in addition to theatrical experience, students will examine the environmental impact of development, runoff, and pollution to the Edwards Aquifer and Barton Springs guided by environmental engineers from our cross-sector partners at GlenRose Engineering.

Directed by Aisha Melhem. The 2014 Youth Company features Isabella Bass, Sky Blaw, Jack Butler, Callier Creedle, Taylor Cruse, Julie Gester, Trinity Gonzalez, Owen Lucas, Noah Messer, Luna Newcomer, Bryan Silvestro, Madeline Silvestro, Riley Simpson, and Egan White. Luke Gracia joins the youth ensemble as an adult guest artist.

Adaption by Bonnie Cullum and Kirk Smith. Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon. Lighting Design by Jennifer Rogers. Costume Design by Stephanie Dunbar. Sound Design by Nate Laningham. Stage Management by Adam Gunderson with Ray Dietz and Andrea Negrete. Community Partnership with Glenrose Engineering.
