Growing Up Blue
- by Chloë Martens
- directed by Shade Murray
On the verge of Blue's 14th birthday, everyone in their small town finds out Blue may be transgender. Blue is confronted with violence, new restrictions on bathroom use, and an offer to star in a new reality television show. In this new play by Chloë Martens, Blue struggles to grow up and escape a life in hiding to discover the beauty in difference.
And the core question:
What does it mean to hide who you are in order to survive?
- The cast features
Eliana Beigel (Court), Kya Brickhouse (Trish), Christina Euphrat (Chelsea), Elliot Gross (Charlie), Noah Kurnik (Gray), Aiden Rivkin (Blue).
The production team includes scenic design by Paloma Locsin, costume design by Emilee Orton, lighting design by Jack Riley, sound design by Sarah Parker, technical direction by Ethan Gill, dramaturgy by Rachel Perzynski, and stage management by Erin Collins.

Performances Interpreted in American Sign Language & Assisted Listening Devices:
We offer American Sign Language interpretation presented by theatrically trained certified interpreters. Leading up to an interpreted performance, interpreters see the play multiple times, practice with recordings, and determine sign names for the characters in the play. We are happy to provide a script in advance to audience members who request this service. Contact the box office at email@example.com to request a script. We also offer ListenUp! personal listening devices for each performance. These assistive listening devices are available free of charge to patrons upon request.

The performance on 5/26 at 7:30 PM will include a live audio-description of the visual and physical events on-stage for patrons who are blind or have low vision. We also invite you to join us that day for a pre-performance program with a touch tour, which begins at 6 PM in the Fullerton Stage lobby. The touch tour program will include information about the characters and design choices that add to the world of the play. Patrons who are participating in the audio-described event may also request the playbill in Braille, large print, and audio formats.
