LEVEL: Medium Crossword by Myles Mellor and Susan Flanagan LIFE & ARTS the northbrook tower | April 12, 2018 | 33 ‘Doo-Wop Red Riding Hood’ a joyful experience for actors Sarah Haider Freelance Reporter Bright Star Theatre Company set the stage for everyone to shine at its recent production of “Doo- Wop Red Riding Hood.” The musical featured 12 actors with special needs from Glenview, Northbrook, Deerfield, Glencoe and Highland Park paired with 12 companions in two performances Saturday-Sunday, April 7-8, at Northbrook Theatre. The theater company, in permanent partnership with the Northbrook Park District, is one of the many subsets of the Northern Suburban Special Recreation Association, an organization that provides year-round recreation programs and services for North Shore children, teens and adults with disabilities. “This is really an important program here that a lot of people don’t know about,” Director Julie Gibson Lay said. “Everybody deserves a chance to be seen by the world ... in a way that they feel they belong and show what they are capable of, rather than always being defined by what other people see them as.” Gibson, in her fourth year with the program, chose “Doo-Wop Red The cast performs a song. Riding Hood” for the yearly production due to its catchy music and high energy. She described the show as a roller coaster of fun. For Gibson, her main goal as director was creating a way for the 12 special-needs participants and their companions to explore the benefits of theater and have a “joyful” time doing it. “When you are doing music and doing a show, you aren’t thinking about ... anything that bothers you,” Gibson said. “You enter a state of flow and are mindful of being there in the moment. ... I don’t think our [cast] is offered that gift often enough, and when they are experiencing flow and mindfulness, their disabilities fall away and they feel confident.” The musical followed the journey of Little Red, Big Green and Medium THE SPRING Purple Riding Hood in their search for love. Fullcast musical and dance numbers outlined the comically troublesome plight of the three sisters, including an improvised song Please see Play, 35 CARPET SALE Lowest Prices of the Season Now Through June 4th SELECT TUFTEX STYLES ON SALE NOW THROUGH APRIL 30 TH Featuring True Event by Tuftex Rachel Bernstein (left), of Northbrook, joins Glenview resident Lisa Krupinski and Director Julie Gibson Lay, of Northbrook, while rehearsing a scene for”Doo-Wop Red Riding Hood.” Photos by Sarah Haider/22nd Century Media 1840 Skokie Boulevard Northbrook, IL 60062 847.835.2400 You make it home, we make it beautiful.
