EMERGING ARTISTS COMPANY
Formerly Lyric Arts Youth Theater Ensemble
SUMMER 2019 PRODUCTION
August 16–18, 2019
In 1913 Paris, a young Pablo Picasso is enjoying the beginnings of his recognized art career. Prominent art dealer Ambrose Vollard is excited to help Picasso debut his newest work, The Frugal Repast. Two down-on-their-luck circus performers see the art and realize that they are the subjects depicted, and decide to steal it and hold it for ransom.
Unbeknownst to them, the piece is only one of many etchings, and worth almost nothing at all. A ransom note, a mysterious invitation, aerial acrobatics, and mishaps abound as the wealthy and the poor tackle the value of art and life in this hilarious yet poignant show.
$18 for adults
$15 for students
Available online or at the box office as of May 20.
