Wishful Thinking makes debut on Coastal stage in April

What happens when a modern-day, plus-size woman unleashes a trash-talking, disco-loving genie from a bottle and gets to make one wish?

Well, of course she makes the obvious wish to be thin. What follows is a comic romp with twists and turns and laughs and guffaws along the way.

Written by local playwright Kathryn Martin and directed by Coastal senior Jason Adams, Wishful Thinking will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 10 to 12, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 13 at the Edwards Black Box Theater.

Starring in the two-act play are Lizz Farmer as Kelly, the girl with the mature figure, and Michael Bratsafolis as the hip genie. Other characters are played by Hannah Palkovitz, Jullian Colletta, Chaz Fries, Kenny Greer, Brian Nunez and Dan Morgan.

Melanie Schuessler is costume designer, and Charlotte Dyal is assistant designer. Tymberley Wittrig is scene designer, Liz Lane is stage manager, and Wes Britt is assistant stage manager.

Adams, a senior dramatic arts major from Conway, previously directed The Vagina Monologues and The Laramie Project.

Martin is founder of the year-old New Works Group, a support group that encourages emerging playwrights and helps them find venues for their productions.

General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students under 18. Call 349-2502 for more information.
