Senior Company Spring Play
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The senior spring project is when we focus on modern or contemporary drama. The rehearsal process is focused on grounded human behavior and the tools actors can use to create specific, engaging performances. This program provides opportunity for young people to develop a deeper understanding of craft through a rigorous rehearsal process. We work with modern or contemporary scripts and seek material with a strong ensemble feel. By audition.
2020 Senior Company Spring Play
SENSE & SENSIBILITY
By Kate Hamill
Based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Hallie Flower
ABOUT THE SHOW
Rumor has it that girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice; but rumors are rarely true. Hold on to your teacup, Kate Hamill’s inventive adaptation of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, is one saucy ride. Step into scandalous 18th-century England, where the Dashwood sisters - impulsive Marianne and practical Elinor - attempt to maneuver their way through the fray of societal expectations and constraints, which somehow, today, we still haven’t managed to overcome. Breathing new life into SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, this highly physical and ensemble driven piece is clever and unapologetically theatrical; definitely not your mama’s Austen.
