Is it an art installation? Is it a walking audio adventure? Is it even THEATRE??

 Welcome to a theatrical installation with augmented reality, a walking tour through Alfred University’s Miller Performing Art Center and your imagination unlike any trip you may have been on before. Welcome, in short, to Suzette Who Set to Sea, by Australian playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer, brought to you by a cast and crew of intrepid how-do-we-make-live-art-in-covid artpreneurs.

 This is the story of Suzette, who set to sea. It is also the story of being brave enough to step into your own true self, and your own special powers. First mate Conroy fights one-legged Pete because who wants to set to sea with a lady captain in charge of the ship? That captain tells a story of shipwrecks and sea monsters and saving cities. And if you tell a story long enough, listen hard enough, it becomes your story too. And then, everything can change.

 Featuring student performances by: Howard Lang, Aaliyah Gordon, Lashay Santana, Zulaikha Yusuff, Kirstin Van Renselaar, Milton Esliker, Jade Tulk, Charise Paschall.

Student Designs by: Ronan Adams, Marysia Josephson, Katie Maher, and Daniela Marie. Stage Management by Monica Nowik.

 Performances April 7-10; 4 - 8 pm Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. 1 - 5 pm Saturday
