Upcoming: SLO Little Theatre Presents Pertinent Play

October 13, 2010



Intro: A group of actors in downtown SLO are using theater to raise awareness for sexual assault prevention. I’m Victoria Billings, coming to you from downtown, covering Boy Gets Girl, a play opening next month at San Luis Obispo Little Theatre.

Report: If one weren’t specifically looking for San Luis Obispo Little Theatre, it might be very easy to miss. Like the name indicates, it is a small blackbox theater, but it is home to over a dozen theatrical productions a year. Right now, rehearsal has begun for a provocative sort of show: Boy Gets Girl, a play about a blind date that quickly becomes a stalking case. The show is being presented by Ubu’s Other Shoe, the readers’ theater group at SLO Little Theatre.

Michael Siebrass, artistic director of Ubu’s Other Shoe, chose the play because he felt it was a pertinent issue, and will be working with the Sexual Abuse Recovery and Prevention Center of San Luis Obispo to raise awareness and funds.

“You have these stalking situations going on all around us,” said Siebrass. “It’s a timely play.”

Boy Gets Girl is directed by Cal Poly professor Ginny Anderson and will open November 5.

Editor’s note: A full Q&A with Ginny Anderson, director of Boy Gets Girl, will be posted next week.
