Junior Theatre’s 1950 touring community outreach production of The Lost Name was a collaborative effort by local college drama students and faculty, performed by Sadie Lou Tieri’s Junior Theater Wing Summer Workshop students. Tieri was a member of Hunton Sellman’s play directing class at San Diego State College.
The new show was written by SDSC student Genevieve Turnac, directed by Ms Tieri with assistance by William Butler of the Park and Recreation Department, and San Diego State College student Shirley Kretschmer.
Mobile sets were designed by Richard Comstock, and transported venue-to-venue by truck.
A JT Premiere! Recommended for all ages.
