The Levels Teen Center of the Great Neck Library is proud to present “Sheamus’s Tragedy,” a live online theatre production, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Jan. 14, 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. Visit Levels’ website at greatnecklibrary.org/levels-is starting Monday, Jan. 11 to find out how to watch it online for Free.

Since the pandemic began, Levels has been breaking new ground in doing live theatre online, using Zoom, YouTube Live and other streaming platforms.

“Sheamus’s Tragedy” is a 45-minute original comedy written and directed by student Britt Trachtenberg.  The play concerns teenagers Adam and Michelle Scott, who tell a series of lies to explain their mother’s absence to their father Sheamus after he gets home from a long day of work.  When their lies are proven false, they are left with nothing else to tell but the truth — which Sheamus also finds unbelievable.  So, the teens must resort to lying once more…to get their father to believe the truth.  The cast includes Gabby Henderson, Leah Schader, Jonathan Wu, Ben Zar and Nina Zar.

Levels, the Library’s cultural center for teenagers established in 1974, traditionally presents several fully-staged theatrical productions a year, all directed, produced and performed by students in seventh grade through college-age.
