Upcoming Community Theatre Performances Showcase Unique Dramas

PowPAC, Poway’s Community Theatre presents two very intriguing performances in March and April. For four weekends starting March 6, a darker drama called God Committee will explore the collision of money and morality. Doctors have only minutes to decide which of three patients will received a heart being couriered to the hospital, giving them the unwanted power over life and death. Viewpoints include four opposing physicians, a nurse with concerns about race, a Catholic priest and practicing lawyer, and a disabled social worker. Based on actual events, the play is presented in real time without intermission, transporting the audience through the rising tension of the debate. God Committee will show Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., closing March 29.

On April 4 at 8 p.m., Monte Vista High School’s award-winning choir, Sound Odyssey, will take the stage along with adult performers for The Music of Wonderland, a unique take on the classic story. Within the compelling musical score by Frank Wildhorn, Alice is a divorced single mother and struggling writer – only her daughter, Chloe, remembers the wonder that can exist in the world. The White Knight has a boy band, the Cheshire Cat dances the samba, and the Mad Hatter is a maniac out to destroy Wonderland. Sound Odyssey has earned the Heritage Festival Gold Rating, Adjudicator’s Award, and Maestro Award, as well as the Southern California Invitational’s Best Female Soloist, Best Male Soloist, and Audience Favorite awards.
