Levels Online Theatre presents Sheamus’s Tragedy
The Levels Teen Center has moved our theatre performances online!  Sheamus’s Tragedy, an original comedy written and directed by Britt Trachtenberg, will be performed LIVE by teen actors in their homes, and live-streamed to audiences at home, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 14, 15 and 16 at 8:00 p.m.
Sheamus’s Tragedy concerns teenagers Adam and Michelle Scott, who tell a series of lies to explain their mother’s absence to their father Sheamus after he gets home from a long day of work.  When their lies are proven false, they are left with nothing else to tell but the truth — which Sheamus also finds unbelievable.  So the teens must resort to lying once more…to get their father to believe the truth.  The cast includes Gabby Henderson, Leah Schader, Jonathan Wu, Ben Zar and Nina Zar.  Running time is approx. 45 minutes.
Virtual admission is free.  The links to watch this LIVE production online will become available on the week of the show.  Please register below if you want to be emailed the links.  Those links will also be available on our website at www.greatnecklibrary.org/levels-is.
