Phone obsessed teens Sarah and Derek have heard their parent’s cautionary nagging before. “One of these days you’re gonna get sucked up into that phone!” And then it happens. The two teens find themselves trapped in the internet and on a wild adventure through the World Wide Web during the next performance at Hutton’s Hamlet, coming up in July.
Memes, viral videos, games, email, dating sites, and social media come alive onstage, including Fruit Ninja, The Dress, Distracted Boyfriend, and many more. And it wouldn’t be the internet without lots of cats, and a dancing baby. Twitter, Miserable Cat, and Sirilexa team up with Derek and Sarah to find The Google, who can help them find a way home. But The Google informs them that their parents are also caught in the web and need saving. Now Derek and Sarah must brave the darker parts of the internet with identity thieves, trolls, knockoff sellers, and other shady characters such as the Nigerian Prince running scams.
Performances of this show at Hutton’s Hamlet Performing Arts Center are scheduled for Friday, July 8 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, July 9 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for those 12 and under. The Performing Arts Center is at 132 W. G St., Oakdale.
