Spring 2019 Production
Anon(ymous) by Naomi Iizuka, an adaptation of Homer’s The Odyssey
Anon(ymous), Naomi’s Iizuka’s entrancing contemporary adaption of Homer’s The Odyssey, retells the classic story through the eyes ofa young refugee. Separated from family and in a strange place far from a home lost forever, Anon goes on a quest for belonging, encountering a wide variety of people — some kind, some dangerous and cruel. Guided by a goddess and the memory of a mother’s warm embrace and wise voice, Anon must navigate through a chaotic, ever-changing landscape searching for something or someone to call home.

Collaboration with Disney Theatricals for Peter and the Starcatcher
Shadow Mountain High School and the North Valley Art’s Academy Theatre Program worked with Disney Theatricals in New York as one of four high schools chosen across the nation to pilot Disney’s Peter and the Starcatcher before the amateur rights were released.
We provided Disney Theatricals with feedback on the challenges and opportunities this particular script provided for high school theatres.
PETER AND THE STARCATCHER and the NVAA Theater Program was featured in Raising Arizona Kids Magazine – read the great press here
