Your guide to this weekend's "columbinus" shows

Sweet Bee Theater, Pittsboro

After touring through Durham and Carrboro, Social Justice Theater of the Carolinas brings "columbinus" home to Sweet Bee Theater this weekend.

These talented young actors are from local high schools including Northwood and Jordan Matthews. They are ready to start a conversation, and just need you to be there.

Please read through the comprehensive guide below, and get your tickets soon.

"Columbinus" is a play by the United States Theatre Project written by Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli. We have chosen this play to commemorate the lives lost in Columbine High School and all school shootings. 

This play is important because it deftly unites rather than divides. Instead of focusing on hot-button topics like gun control, columbinus focuses on what we can do to promote conversation around how we treat one another.

Performance tickets will be $10 for general admission, and free to all school employees. School employees are able to reserve a ticket online* as long as you bring your staff ID with you.

Please note that this show has extreme language, adult situations, and violence. No one under 13 will be admitted without a parent.

After each performance, a counselor will lead a community discussion between the actors and the audience about school shootings.

*Please note there is a $0.37 processing fee for all online tickets. Tickets at the door are first come, first served and will not require this fee.

Behind the Scenes

Eden Priddle ("Prep")
Hannah Conners ("Rebel")
Ethan Galiger ("Jock")
Alayna McLandsborough ("Faith")
India Nkamp ("Perfect")
Abi Dasher ("Advanced Placement")
Jake Dusenberry (“Loner”)
Jacqui Anthenien (“Freak”)
According to Chatham Life and Style, "Production stand-out Jacqui Anthenien brings the cold, unsound Eric Harris (“Freak”) to the foreground with a truly terrifying, yet sympathetic rendering.”
Chatham Life and Style says, “A subtle Jake Dusenberry channels real-life Dylan Klebold (“Loner”)” 
Chatham Life and Style says, “Alayna McLandsborough (Faith) and India Nykamp (Perfect) deliver nuanced and bold interpretations on par with many local adult actors. “ India is a veteran of Pittsboro Youth Theater having performed with us since our second production! She has also performed in many other places including Northwood High School!
Chatham Life and Style says, “Abi Dasher is a surprisingly mature A.P. (Advanced Placement), finding depth in a character with little dimension on the page. Abi has been seen in many roles at Pittsboro Youth Theater ranging from Mowgli in Jungalbook to the title role in Annie!

In 2019, we received a grant from Manbites Dog to perform 'columbinus' in 4 larger theatres around the Triangle. We hope you can join us for this important discussion.
