Rochester Community and Technical College Hosts FOREVER FLIGHT Theater Performance

(Rochester, MN)  Rochester Community and Technical College is hosting a performance of “FOREVER FLIGHT A boy. A paper plane. An unforgettable adventure.” on Saturday, March 24 at 2:00 pm in RCTC’s Hill Theatre.

 

Created by Karim Muasher, Carrie Brown, and RCTC Theatre Instructor Ryan Underbakke, this family-friendly show is performed by critically acclaimed theatre company Animal Engine. FOREVER FLIGHT is a story of a lonely boy who needs a friend so he folds one out of a piece of paper! When his paper plane flies too far, it's up to him to journey across land, air, sea, and even outer space to find it and grow up along the way.

 

FOREVER FLIGHT is performed without a single word in breathtaking detail by one actor, Animal Engine Co-Artistic Director, Karim Muasher. The production was inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupery's world famous novel, Le Petit Prince, Windsor McCay's groundbreaking comic strip Nemo in Slumberland, and any story of children going on fantastical adventures.

 

FOREVER FLIGHT was created in collaboration with visionary director Ryan Underbakke (Children's Theatre Company's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Live Action Set's Seven Shot Symphony, Taous Khazem's Sunrise at Midnight) with original music by whimsical composer John Hilsen.

 

This performance is recommended for children ages 8 and up. Ticket prices are: $15 for adults; $10 for children under 12; and $5 for RCTC students.
