A beginning look at the theatrical experience. Perhaps there is an actor in you just begging to step onstage.
This class will offer a beginning look at the theatrical experience of developing a performance ensemble- how to speak, how to breathe, how to move, and ways to improve presentation skills in interpreting the potency within plays. The work of theater is to present life's experiences and emotions that great dramatic works evoke. Perhaps there is a performance in our future! Plays may include works by Sara Ruhl, August Wilson, T.S. Eliot, George Bernard Shaw, or others. We plan 6-8 sessions of 90 minutes each, day and time tbd. Presenters: Richard Sias and Jack Clark.
Presenter: Richard Sias is a professional dancer/actor whose Broadway musical credits include: Camelot, No Strings, and The Fantasticks, as well as solo work at Radio City Music Hall. He danced on national tv with the Peter Gennaro Dancers on The Ed Sullivan Show, on Juliet Prowse specials, and on The Bell Telephone Hour. He directed Fantasticks, Mame, and Funny Girl for the Syracuse NY Little Theatre and the Thousand Island NY Players, and Die Fledermaus and A Little Night Music at USF. He has a B.F.A. from the dance theatre program at Butler University and is a Florida State University professor of emeritus of dance; former assistant professor of dance at USF; and former artistic director for the Syracuse Ballet Theater. He has been artist-in-residence at many dance companies and universities, including Tampa Ballet, the Tallahassee Ballet, and the Boston Conservatory.

Cathedral Book Talks When: Second Tuesday of the month in October, November, January, February, and March, noon to 1 p.m. Where: Harvard Hall Lunch: Is available ($5), or feel free to bring your own
Our popular series of book talks begins a seventh year on October 10, when we welcome author Ben Montgomery to talk about his latest book, The Leper Spy: The Story of An Unlikely Hero of World War II. When the Philippines were under attack by the Japanese in 1942, a 25-year-old Filipino woman smuggled maps, tracked Japanese troop movements, stashed explosives, and saved lives. She escaped Japanese scrutiny because she suffered from leprosy. Later, as a resident of Washington, D.C., this Medal of Honor recipient would have to fight to stay in the country she served. Ben Montgomery is the author of the prize-winning Grandma Gatewood’s Walk, the story of Emma Gatewood, who at age 67 set out to walk the Appalachian Trail alone. He was a Pulitzer finalist for his coverage of abuse at the Dozier School for Boys, Florida’s oldest reform school, for the Tampa Bay Times.
