White wrote the play to combine drama and comedy, and chose to center the piece on the main character named Charlie Fisher, played by Cameron Walter. As Charlie is ready to graduate with a degree in biochemistry, he runs into a problem: he hasn’t fulfilled the arts requirement. Unable to correct the school of the mistake, Charlie signs up for a classical music appreciation class and falls in love with his musician classmate Marie, played by Brittany Shaffer. In order to impress Marie, Charlie embarks on a semester long journey to discover his dormant artistic abilities as he creates The Rose Sonata, a dance piece. But as Charlie soon learns in this lighthearted comedy, there’s more to art than trying to impress.
“I hope for audiences to be thrilled by this unique piece that combines traditional play acting with elements of movement and dance, evoking and discovering emotion in new and exciting ways,” said White. “And having a few good laughs along the way.”
Tickets for all three performances are available at www.PACEcenteronline.org.
