The Career Development Center at Mt Anthony Union High School offers a program in Theatre Arts. Each spring they produce a play which gives students an opportunity to act in one of the many plays they learn about. This year, the play is Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig, a delightful farce It will be playing from Wednesday to Saturday, starting on May 10 at 7 pm. Tickets are $6 at the CDC office or at the door. After seeing the end of a rehearsal, Bob and I enjoyed interviewing three of the students in the play. We not only talked about the play and their work in it, but about what theatre means to them. After you listen to them, you will want to see them perform in the play. Click on the links below and then get your tickets.
Drama at Bennington College is a community resource which more people should attend. Bob and I have enjoyed diverse, exciting and engaging productions over the years. Whether it is a faculty or a student production, the work is of high quality. We had the pleasure of talking with a student playwright, Julia Lorello, two student directors, Emma Plotkin and Jamie Catana, and faculty member, Kirk Jackson. They discussed the purpose and the process of these productions. Click on the links below to hear their ideas and experiences.
