Whitefire Theatre presents Life on the Rez, A virtual show written, produced and performed by Luella Wagner. The show is directed by Bryan Rasmussen (Artistic Director of the Whitefire Theatre) with musical accompaniment by Joe Vasquez.
“Rez” for the uninitiated, is slang for Indian reservation. Luella, a Los Angeles-based longtime educator, suddenly finds herself without employment in a tight job market. Following an extensive search, she finds that the only job available to her is a one-year contract at St. Labre Indian School, a Catholic institution on the Northern Cheyenne reservation in Montana.
Luella Wagner is a writer and performer. She received a Master’s Degree in Educational Theatre from NYU and a Teaching Credential from UCLA. While on the reservation, she produced and directed a prize-winning documentary, We Shall Survive, which received recognition at film festivals.
