4th Annual Community Theatre Festival presents "Unplugged" presented by Primary Players
when: Sat, Aug 2 thru Sun, Aug 3, 2014
where: Haslam Family Flexible Theatre
time: Multiple Times Available
Could you live without technology for 30 days?  That’s the question in this smart and fun play by award-winning playwright Laurie Bryant.  Ten years ago, tiny North Creek, Wisconsin became “The Most Wired Town in America” thanks to a contest-winning essay from local resident Abigail Rickman.  As their prize, SOLOtech outfitted the entire town with state-of-the-art wireless technology.  Fast forward to now and the citizens of North Creek do absolutely everything virtually.  Everything.  But when Tom Morris, the founder of SOLOtech, learns that Abigail has sent back her SOLOpad, claiming life was better without it, he seeks Abigail out, concerned that there might be some truth in what she’s saying. Despite the protests of his assistants, he offers the town $30 million dollars to unplug for an entire month.  With a host of “plugged in” teenagers, an online science teacher who relishes never having to dress professionally from the waist down, and Winston, a virtual hamster whose very life is dependent on SOLO technology, the residents of North Creek (and your audience) learn a valuable lesson about moderation and the time and place for technology in our lives.
Primary Players can be found online at The goal of the group is to develop and practice a variety of theatrical skills in such areas as dramatic expression, artistic interpretation, technical presentation, makeup, sets, and costume design. It is the desire of those involved with this endeavor, that the students participating in the Primary Players will develop a heightened appreciation of the theatrical arts, and will recognize the important role of the arts in their community. In addition, the group strives to ensure that the student’s time with us is a fun and positive experience.

Primary Players is a Proud Resident Company of the Clayton Center for the Arts
