“The Bad Seed” will run from October 19 through November 18 with shows every Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m in the DST Actor’s Cafe.
The show follows Colonel and Christine Penmark’s daughter, Rhoda. Rhoda becomes suspicious after one of her schoolmates mysteriously drowns at a picnic. Based in a small Southern town, the boy who was drowned had won the penmanship medal that Rhoda felt she deserved.
The show will be directed by Diane Senffner (“A Few Good Men,” “The Seminar”) who will be making her directorial debut at Desert Stages. The show stars 11 year old valley actress Anora Biggs as Rhoda, and DST veteran actress and director, Virginia Olivieri (“Verdict,” “Glengarry Glen Ross”) as Rhoda’s mother.
