Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre will present “The Rimers of Eldritch,” Lanford Wilson’s gripping courtroom drama, from Oct. 11 – 20 at the Proscenium Theater on the CCA campus.
The Rimers of Eldritch takes place in the tiny, midwestern town of Eldritch and centers on the mystery of a murder and the trial that follows. This intriguing play, in its simplest portrayal, is about a town and the inhabitants that enter and exit its borders. However, at its core, Rimers is about how lies transform into truth and how we live and breathe these lies and force them into reality, and explores the blurred line between what happens, what we say happens, and what is remembered for years to come. Note: this play contains adult themes and language.
The production comes to life thorough a talented cast of CCA Envision Theatre students and working guest artists as instructors. Guest artists at CCA are supported by the CCA Foundation (www.canyoncrestfoundation.org), providing fantastic opportunities in a wide range of fields and creating an environment where students can thrive.
Showtimes are Thursday/Friday/Saturday Oct. 11-13 at 7 p.m., an after-school show on Thursday, Oct. 18, and the final two performances: Friday/Saturday Oct. 19-20 at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.cca-envision.org/events.html or at the box office 30 minutes before showtime.
