Coming for the 2013-14 Season!
A Weekend of One-Acts
The students in THT 311 Play Direction demonstrate what they have learned by directing other Carroll College students in five short plays for two nights in the Carroll College Theatre.
The students have chosen the plays they wish to direct, and here they are:
- Harry's Hotter at Twilight by Jonathon Dorf - A comedy directed by Cat King Imagine a world where genres clash! Wizards meet Vampires, Vampires clash with Werewolves over love, Invisible Rabbits run schools and its all to save the town of Spork from the Fine Diner and the bloodthirsty Euphoria!
- Sorry by Timothy Mason - A romantic comedy directed by Katie Cummings When Wayne first saw Pat he thought she was sexy as sin, classy, friendly, cute and a little lonely. When Pat first saw Wayne, she screamed and shot him in the leg. She might have taken "playing hard to get" a little too far.
- The Other Room by Ariadne Blayde - A Drama directed by Sabrina Harding A chance encounter brings a popular high school girl and a brilliant autistic astronomer together. In a heartwarming, heartbreaking study of his inner struggle to connect, The Other Room brings a unique and misunderstood mind to life.
- Hum of the Artic by Sarah Hammond - A Drama directed by Vivian Cole A very bizarre encounter between a deaf woman seeking reprieve in the tub and her artistic neighbor seeking solace in the canvas is recounted to us by our faithful narrator Claire. She tells us of the unexpected intrusion by a man seeking silence and a woman always seeking sound, which left a lasting impression.
- Arabian Nights by David Ives - A Comedy directed by Vivian Cole Utterly normal Norman never expected to find love waiting for him in a souvenir shop; and Flora didn't think the tourinst on his way out would be her soul mate; but with the help of a looney translator these two make a connection to span the ages.
December 6 and 7, Friday and Saturday Evenings at 7:30 pm
An Adaptation of the Greek Comedy by Aristophanes
In a new English version by Robert Lehan, Directed by Guest Director, Rebecca Ryland, MFA.
Guest Director Rebecca Ryland, MFA, brings one of the worlds’ oldest comedies about two of the worlds’ oldest problems, love and war. The women of Greece force the men to choose between Love and War, by withholding sex until the men stop going to war! Will this strategy work? You have got to come and see!
This classic was last performed at Carroll College in the 1970’s and is still studied as part of classes in History, Literature, Sociology and Theatre; so we have chosen to bring it back!
Warning! This is for mature audiences, and is not intended for children. But this modern adult version will make modern adult audiences laugh as much as the ancient version made the ancients laugh!
Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays 7:30 pm February 13, 14 & 15; 20, 21 & 22
Sunday Matinees 3:00 pm February 16 & 23
Theatre for Children
This will be a classic tale for children directed by a Carroll College Theatre Student who will be selected by the theatre faculty based on a review of the submitted proposal. They will submit their proposals by December 2013 and we will announce the selection in January 2014. May the best one win!
Fridays & Saturdays 7:30 pm April 4 & 5, 11 & 12
Four special matinees for schools will be offered when the play is selected. Stay tuned!
