Meet in Harvard Hall at the Cathedral. 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.
Reader's Theatre Actors Will Perform December 13 Participants in our Reader's Theatre — a new activity this fall — have been busy since September learning the basics of performance, and they are ready to raise the curtain on a year-end "strut their stuff" performance. At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 13, in Harvard Hall, join them for an hour-long program of selected works "from the hilarious to the sublime," including Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Plays/365 Days, John Murrell's Waiting for the Parade, and Sarah Ruhl's Passion Play. The Reader's Theatre is directed by Jack Clark and Richard Sias, retired professional actors, dancers, directors, and choreographers. If you attended the second of our two Sunday-morning classes on the Protestant Reformation, you saw Jack in the role of King Henry VIII and Frank Casorio, a participant in the theatre group, as Martin Luther.
