JEHANNE OF THE WITCHES

by Sally Clark

February 13-15, 2014 at 7:30 PM 
Student Matinee February 14 at 1:00 PM

DIRECTED BY Virginia Reh
Scenographer: David Vivian

Assistant Director:  Casey Gillis
Assistant Designer: James McCoy
Dramaturg:  Brittany Stewart

Black magic, illusion, and the suppression of Truth. Voices swirl as Joan of Arc and Gilles de Rais, the infamous Bluebeard, concoct a witches' brew of sexuality and the use - and abuse - of power. 

The Department of Dramatic Arts of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts is proud to present this play by Canadian playwright Sally Clark. Ms Clark was part of a wave of female playwrights in the 1980s who wrote plays about notable women from a female perspective. The play is mostly based on solid historical fact; Clark weaves her magic through unique interpretation and theatricality.

TWELFTH NIGHT, (or what you will)

a comedy by William Shakespeare

November 7-9, 2013 at 7:30 PM
Student Matinee November 08 at 11:30 AM

DIRECTED BY Gyllian Raby.
Co-Director and Vocal Coach: Danielle Wilson
Assistant Director and Dramaturge: Keavy Lynch

Change is in the air-- or perhaps it’s love?
Caught in the crosswinds fools, lovers, and shipwrecked souls tip into
their opposites. In Shakespeare’s Illyria as one wise fool puts it,
“nothing that is so is so”. But bring on a contemporary band of
musicians and a Duke who loves the rockabilly blues and --Presto!
--everything is “what you will”.
