BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Division of Communication and the Arts will present “The Secret in the Wings” April 6 through April 9 on campus.

Shows will take place at 7:30 p.m. April 6, 7 and 8 and a 2 p.m. April 9 in the Studio Theater of Blaisdell Hall. Tickets are $6 for the public and $2 for all students.

The play is written by Mary Zimmerman and will be directed by Dr. Kevin Ewert, professor of theater.

“Mary Zimmerman is one of the most magical and inventive theater artists at work today,” Ewert said. In 2010, Pitt-Bradford students presented her play “Metamorphoses.”

In “The Secret in the Wings,” Zimmerman adapts six lesser-known fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. They begin as bedtime stories read to a young girl by her neighbor – who just may be an ogre. The stories fan out, each interrupted by the next, until these fractured fairy tales are put back together again and other secrets are revealed.

“It’s a delightful piece that combines stories, songs and images in some really striking ways – and yes, it saves its very best story for last,” Ewert added.

Ensemble members are Clairise Kalkhof, a broadcast communications major from Sigel; Nathan Lawyer, an economics, history-political science and international affairs major from Coraopolis; Collin Maines, a broadcast communications major from Sheffield; Brooke Imbrialle, an interdisciplinary arts major from Beaver Falls;

Brittany Minugh, a history-political science major from Ludlow; Kenneth Reilly, a history-political science major from Brooklyn, New York; Shaan Hossain, an international affairs major from Pittsburgh; Holly Kilpatrick, a psychology major from Bradford; and Carlie Watson, a radiological science major from Coudersport.

Shayne Kraynyk, a business management student from Pittsburgh, is the vocal coach for the songs.

While all of the fairy tales contain some darker thematic elements, this show is suitable for ages 12 and up.
