The Young King

Presented by Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College at Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College

For the first time ever, PAS Arts Education puts an intimate story on Yardley Hall stage and limits the experience to 250 individuals per show. With so many shows focused solely on curriculum ties to math and science, the message of The Young King brings a human tenderness to our stage in a story about privilege, compassion and making ethical choices. The achingly beautiful and endearing language of Oscar Wilde joins the world of Slingsby Theatre from Australia.

“Beyond the immaculate work of each and every performer, everything from the music, to the props, to the artwork was, in and of itself, a work of immense beauty. A reworked version of the original script by Oscar Wilde, the new story is intricate, raw and magical. Enhanced by miniature puppets and shadow play, this is a performance with stories that will linger in your mind long after the final bow . . . .”
— Sarah Jean, Adelaide Fringe, Australia
