Announcing the Cast of "Revenge of the Space Pandas."

Our Production Director, Brian J. Proball is making his Lyric Arts directorial debut with our production of Revenge of the Space Pandas. Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Mamet, pens this colorful children's sci-fi fantasy full of vibrant characters and hilarious dialogue perfectly suited to our second annual Theater for Young Performers production. 

In this play, Binky Rudich, his friend Viv, and his almost human sheep Bob, tinker with a two-speed clock with the idea that, as Binky says, "Time on Earth moves at the same speed all the time, but there is another speed, a slower speed, and if we could find it, everything would stand still on Earth and we would spin off." And they do! To Crestview, Fourth World in the Goolagong System, ruled by George Topax and guarded by the Great Space Pandas.
