“The Flick,” a 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, will be performed as a full-length, student-directed works Dec. 9-10 at Scottsdale Community College’s Black Box Theatre.

Performances are open to the public and free to attend with a reservation. The play has mature language intended for adults, according to a press release.

Written by Annie Baker, it is based on characters working in a small, run-down theater in central Massachusetts. It follows the lives of three underpaid employees who attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state.

The hilarious and heart-rending play is a call for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

Co-directed by SCC students Kelsey Potter and Alejandro Salcido, it features student actors Norjir Nishida (as Avery) Abigail Crawford (as Rose) and Dominic Hamilton (as Sam). Race Carter plays a supporting role as Skylar/Dreamy Man.

Although the play is free to attend for those with reservations, donations are graciously accepted, the release stated. The Black Box Theatre, which has limited seating, is located within the school’s Performing Arts Center.

Show times are 2 p.m. on Dec. 9 and 10, and 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 10. The Black Box Theatre is at 9000 E. Chaparral Road in Scottsdale.
