La Jolla Playhouse's 2012 POP Tour is RECIPE FOR DISASTER

La Jolla Playhouse’s 2012 Performance Outreach Program (POP) Tour production, Recipe for Disaster, by critically-acclaimed playwright Barry Kornhauser, will tour schools throughout San Diego County January 30 – March 30, 2012.

Commissioned by La Jolla Playhouse and the Arizona-based Childsplay, this world-premiere production is directed by David Saar and features original music by Deborah Wicks La Puma (composer of the Playhouse’s 2011 POP Tour production of Frida Libre). Public performances will take place at La Jolla Playhouse Saturday, February 25 and Saturday, March 3 at 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm.

In Recipe for Disaster, two blustering, boisterous chefs make a mess of an important exam for one struggling young apprentice. Will the chefs’ need to top each other lead to culinary chaos? Or will the apprentice convince them to put down their spatulas and work together? With elements of clowning, dance and improvisation - and a good dash of silliness -Recipe for Disaster delivers “just desserts” to all who behave with civility and grace - and to those who don’t.

The cast features Ricky Araiza as “Apprentice,” David Dickinson as “Chef,” Rae Henderson as “Chef” and Steven Lone as “Head of School."

Prior to each performance, a Playhouse teaching artist will visit each school to engage students in an interactive workshop to explore issues and themes at the core of the play. The Playhouse will provide schools with a standards-based engagement guide that enables educators to integrate the play into their existing curriculum. After each performance, the cast and crew will conduct a question and answer session with the audience.
