So you make your face a mask.
A mask that hides your face.
A face that hides the pain.
A pain that eats your heart.
A heart that nobody knows.

     Join us for this stunning play that dares to try and stop the violence.

     For the second installment of our annual Subversive Youth Performance Series, Subversive Theatre unapologetically presents William Mastrosimone's BANG, BANG, YOU'RE DEAD -- a play that dares to look straight into the face of high school shootings, bullying, and teenage rage in search of understanding, healing, and hope.  

     First produced in the wake of the infamous Colombine High School Shootings of 1999, this brutally honest one act play plumbs the depths of one young man's pain and rage in the immediate aftermath of his own acts of violence.  The story is fictional, but the issues are all too real... and all too timely.

     BANG, BANG, YOU'RE DEAD is directed by Kelly Beuth*, a drama teacher at Buffalo's Performing Arts High School.  The cast features a long list of Ms. Beuth's student actors including Tamia Horton, Cierra Cappas, Erin Crowell, Daijah Dabney, Magdalena Diaz, Perris Fortson, Pandora Kew, Randi Langdon, Travis LeFevre, Dana Mingo, Miracle Rodriguez, Brianna Simmons, Kajana Stover, and Diamond Turner.

     Lighting Design is by Emily Pedersen* with Set Design by Ashley Bobbett*, Sound Design by Kelly Beuth*, Graphic Design by Scot Kaitanowski*, and Photography & Web Design by Kurt Schneiderman*.

     BANG, BANG, YOU'RE DEAD runs May 30th through June 9th with performances Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm.  Please note, there will be NO PERFORMANCE FRIDAY, JUNE 1st.  Tickets are $20 General Admission and $15 for student, seniors, and Subversive Theatre members.  For all Wednesday performances admission is pay-what-you-can.

     All performances are at Subversive Theatre's regular performance venue The Manny Fried Playhouse at 255 Great Arrow Avenue on the third floor of North Buffalo's Great Arrow Building.

     For more information, please call Subversive Theatre's phoneline at 716-408-0499.

     Our "Subversive Youth Performance Series" began with last year's performance of TICK, TICK... BOOM! by Jonathan Larson.  Our production starred Performing Arts students Daniel Henderson & Connor Graham and was sponsored by Performing Arts Alumnus Jesse L. Martin.  

     BANG, BANG, YOU'RE DEAD is the second installment of our program and we're proud to see it evolve and grow.  And we look forward to many more in the years ahead!
