Places is a story about the pursuit of passion despite extraordinary obstacles. Three interconnected university students battle their family, friends, tragedy, addiction, and their own self-worth in a costly struggle to find themselves and learn perhaps the most important lesson of any: To be yourself for no one else but yourself. A comedic drama about moving on and growing up.

Written and Directed by Michael Kras

Choreography by Alyssa Nedich

Original Score by Stephen Ingram

The character breakdown is as follows:

Alex (Male, 18-30 years old) – Studying acting in university, ignoring the pursuit of his passion and talent for writing thanks to one too many artistically traumatic incidents. Dominated by severe performance anxiety, he is reliant on prescription painkillers to get through rehearsals.


Jason (Male, 18-30 years old) – Alex’s best friend in high school and current university roommate. A naturally talented actor forced into a more financially stable career path by his strict parents. Resorts to drinking in order to cope.


Emily (Female, 18-30 years old) – Stage managing Alex’s end-of-semester production. Tough as nails on the outside, and hides her vulnerability. Has a secret talent for dance but, after much discouragement and a hidden lack of confidence, has avoided pursuing her dream. Background in dance is recommended but not essential. Must be able to move.
