The Seattle Public Theater (SPT) high school youth ensemble presents SMASH, April 27 – May 5, 2012, at the Green Lake Bathhouse (7312 West Green Lake Dr N):

Occupy Wall Street meets the Ivy League. SMASH is a stage adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s comic novel, An Unsocial SocialistSMASH has all of Shaw’s humor, wit and satire, with all the energy and pace of a modern comedy. 

In this hilarious show, a young man faces a dreadful moral dilemma. Newly wedded and filthy rich, he’s got everything life could possibly offer. So what’s his problem? He’s a socialist. Naturally he has no choice but to throw it all away and join the working classes. In a completely misguided attempt to subvert the government, he goes in disguise to a boarding school for girls and that’s where all the fun begins!   It’s a night of class warfare, the war of the sexes, and the war on education, along with roller skates, unicycles, love triangles, bad poetry, and bombs.

Directed by SPT Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock, SMASH stars SPT’s high school youth ensemble.

Show performances are April 27 at 7 p.m., April 28 at 7 p.m., April 29 at 2 p.m., May 4 at 7 p.m. and May 5 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.  All shows are pay-what-you-can.
