‘Petra and the Jay’ takes the stage

-A A +A

Musical: Sci-fi production features some familiar faces

A flying carrot, a dinocyborg and a silicon-based gernanium eater are just a few characters Los Alamos audiences will be able to spend time with.
“Petra and the Jay,” a musical play with a science fiction setting, will be performed at 7 p.m. April 13 and 2 p.m. April 14 at Crossroads Bible Church. The production is a benefit for Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Earth Day events.
The setting is the year 3021 and the Earth’s teeming human population is in turmoil due to wars over water and the proliferation of a deadly disease. Desperate for a solution, members of Earth’s Population Council summon the galactic federation. But not all earthlings are open to guidance from these outsiders, particularly the Guardians who believe passionately that Earth should be governed and inhabited by humans only.
Some members of the Guardians are even prepared to back up their position with acts of intimidation and violence.
At the center of these events is Petra, a human who has a romanticized love for animals and aliens. However, her animal friends — a Jay bird and a deer — think Petra devalues them by giving them human traits. Her friend, Kayll, an aquatic elll, makes a similar accusation when Petra tries to persuade the 12-year-old alien to venture outside her water-based comfort zone.
