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.
