Duo stages 'High School Clix'
"High School Clix," written and performed by Stevie Ray and Michael Erickson, will debut June 5-28 at The Phipps Center for the Arts.
The original comedy has music and audience interaction that will take audience members back to their high school days as a jock, wimp, brainiac, cool kid or burn-out.
Erickson's writing/directing credits include Nickelodeon, Old Globe Theater, La Jolla Playhouse, Theatre on Old Town, National Theatre for Children and New York's Musical Theatre Works. He has had more than 20 of his original theater pieces professionally produced, most recently "How to Mow the Lawn," a multi-media musical set in the world of television production, which premiered last year. His original adaptation of Nancy Carlson's "I Like Me" will open at Stages Theatre in the fall. He has served as musical director of Stevie Ray's Comedy Cabaret since 2007.
"High School Clix" runs June 5-28 on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. (except for June 20), Sundays, June 14 and 28, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 21, at 2 p.m. in the Black Box Theater.
