KINGSPORT — As the former artistic director of Kingsport Theatre Guild’s Imagination! Theatre and whose traveling theatre company continues to lead workshops for budding actors and actresses at KTG each summer, Alaska Reece Vance could think of no better place to stage the world debut of her new original play “Human.”

Local audiences can get a glimpse into the fantastical world Vance has created when the show opens at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14 in the Kingsport Renaissance Center theater. Performances will continue at 7 p.m., Friday; 2 and 7 p.m., Saturday; and 2 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $15.

“Kingsport Theatre Guild is just very supportive of local theatre,” Vance said. “The space is great, it seats a lot of people, and every seat in the house is good. Plus the artistic director [RaChelle Cheeks] is my best friend, so we really wanted to work together. We’re taking it to the New Orleans Fringe Festival in November, then we’re hoping to take it to New York in the summer, so we wanted to share it with our friends first and see how it did in this area and get some feedback.”
