Stage West Theatre presents The Aliens
At a table next to the dumpster behind a Vermont coffee shop, two friends straddling youth and adulthood spend their days pondering life, music, and Bukowski. When a lonely high-school student arrives on the scene, they take him under their wing and teach him everything they know. The Aliens is a play-with-music about connection, creation, and what it takes to grow up.
Beginning on May 11, actors Jake Buchanan and Joey Folsom will trade off roles. Thursdays and Saturdays will feature "A" casting with Buchanan as KJ and Folsom as Jasper. Fridays and Sundays will feature the "B" casting with Buchanan as Jasper and Folsom as KJ. Parker Gray is playing Evan throughout. This arrangement lends itself to very different performances, including different takes on the music performed in the show. Both casting options will remain relevant and polished. Patrons opting to see both performances will find a very different set of shows with the same fantastic script.
