AMES -- Amanda Gray, an Iowa State University performing arts major from Milton, is a member of the cast and creative team for ISU Theatre’s production of “This Is Not a Pipe Dream,” opening at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28.

The playful, family-friendly production will run for two weekends in Fisher Theatre in Ames.

Inspired by the life and work of the surrealist painter Rene Magritte, “This Is Not a Pipe Dream” by Barry Kornhauser follows a young boy who wants to be an artist. Though his desire is dismissed as “a pipe dream,” he begins a quest into the delightfully absurd magic-realism of Magritte’s famous paintings.

Directed by Amanda Petefish-Schrag, assistant professor of theatre at ISU, “This Is Not a Pipe Dream” is a celebration of how art and the imagination help people confront life’s traumas and mysteries.

Gray is a member of the Anonymous Chorus.
