|One of the costumes to be |
used in "Beyond the Impossible"
The production of “Beyond the Impossible,” coming to Cuyamaca College April 8, will transform the Performing Arts Theater stage into a fairy tale setting replete with a royal kingdom, an evil witch and a brave hero who saves the day – along with the life of a beautiful princess.
During the tale of good versus evil, the audience will be treated to an extravaganza of hand-sewn traditional costumes, along with the music and dance of past eras of the Middle and Far East. Recorded music and an English narration of Arabic instructor Aklas Sheai’s script will accompany the 50 performers, all students or counseling office staff, during the production’s three scenes. Theatergoers can also sample food from a local Middle Eastern eatery during the first half hour of the 12:30-2 p.m. event. The event is free and open to the public.
