Old Pueblo Playwrights 3rd Annual New One Act Play Festival

Happy warm July day, OPP fans! As the monsoon takes a break this week, the weather may present more opportunities (111 degrees forecast for Tuesday!) to hunker down next to the air conditioner vent and, say, write plays about ex-lovers trapped together in a mountain cabin during a blizzard. Or something cool like that. It might be tragic, or it might turn out to be a comedy. You just never know.

The name of our organization is Old Pueblo Playwrights, but as we are comprised of a group of intrepid writers, many of us branch out to kindred mediums, such as radio drama and screenplays. It has been a while since we've read a screenplay at one of our meetings, so we're really looking forward to reading and discussing John Heyl's screenplay, "Magdalena" on Monday night. Come join us!

Don't forget to catch the 3rd Annual New One Act Play Festival still going on at Community Playhouse (1881 N. Oracle)! Reviews from OPP friends who have seen the show have been excellent, so don't miss it! Shows run tonight, tomorrow afternoon, and Friday through Sunday next weekend. Go to http://www.communityplayerstucson.org/

Next meeting: Monday night, July 23rd, 7:00 p.m.
ATC Rehearsal Hall (upstairs, next to the Cabaret Theater)

July 26 -August 25, 2018

 

The Effect

By Lucy Prebble

 

“I can't tell the difference between who I am and a side effect.” Connie and Tristan can’t hide how they feel around each other: Hearts thumping, sleepless nights, and a slightly ill excitement. They’ve fallen for one another, and fallen hard—unless their chemistry is a side-effect of an antidepressant they’re taking as clinical trial participants. The trial’s supervising doctors must untangle the ethical implications of Connie and Tristan's illicit relationship. A passionate and provocative look at the mysteries of attraction.

 

Contains Adult Language and Themes.

August 2018 Discount on Comedy Improv at The Studio for Actors

Subject: Announcement: August 2018 Discount on Comedy Improv at The Studio for Actors

 

Taste of Improv Class

The Studio for Actors is now offering a "Taste of Improv Class." Here's how it works. Just come on one Wednesday night from 6:30pm-8:00pm for only $30. This class is normally $40, but for the evenings of August 8 and August 22, you can attend for $30 for one class only, and see how much you love studying improv at The Studio. So, if you've always wondered (or if you've never wondered) if you would enjoy comedy improv, this is your chance to check it out.

Call (520) 881-2363 to sign up.  To qualify for the discounted price, you must say the words "Taste of Improv Class" when you call.

* Limit one $30 class per person.

Comedy Improvisation

You don't have to be a funny person to love and get a lot out of a comedy improv class. I can make you funny. Because you have to focus in this class, you can end up taking a vacation from the stuff that goes on in your life, and there's a lot of healing with laughter. Your coach is a former Saturday Night Live cast member, and will give you the accents and the formats you can use as a "safety net." Improv is a great stress reliever and really encourages the ability to verbally communicate. So, come, play, have a ball, and enjoy releasing your own special creativity.

Also, for students of acting, improv enhances your auditions, loosens up the body, helps you think fast on your feet, introduces dialects, and sharpens your timing.4 consecutive Wednesday nights

6:30pm-8:00pm
Start on any Wednesday (but you should call first to sign up).
$40 per week
Don't worry if you have to miss one or even two of the four classes. You simply pay for the class you have to miss and then take class #5 free.  It's even possible to pay $160 at your first class, and then take your last three classes whenever you can make it. (I keep great records.)

To find out more or to sign up, please call Anna Risley at (520) 881-2363.

Also being offered at The Studio for Actors:
Radio/TV Voiceover Seminar
Audition Technique

Each of these classes is taught by Anna Risley at her Studio (The Studio for Actors), located on 6th Street, just off 4th Avenue.  Anna has 30 years of experience in film, television, voiceover, and stage acting.   To check out her resume, please visit The Studio for Actors website , or call her at (520) 881-2363 to sign up.

The Bennett TheatreLab presents a Festival of Plays

Festival of Plays
Celebrating the TheatreLab’s 10th Year in Tucson

August 2nd-12th, 2018

 

The Bennett TheatreLab is presenting a Festival of Plays to celebrate our 10th year of teaching the up-to-date Stanislavsky System of Psychophysical Actions and Active Analysis.  We will be presenting three productions in true repertory form, over the course of two weekends.  Included will be: Agnes of God by John Pielmeier, Red by John Logan, and a Mime & Scene Showcase. Over the course of nine months, actors from our professional three-year training program have been preparing their roles for performance. The Festival of Plays will run Thursdays through Sundays at The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre, August 2nd through August 12th. Pre-sale General Admission tickets are $20 or $50 for a 3-Day Festival Pass. ($15 for Students, Teachers, and Seniors).

 

Can you be a murderer and a saint? Agnes of God explores the arrest of a young nun examined by a court-appointed psychiatrist.  Startling revelations force the Doctor, the Mother Superior, and Novice to question the meaning of faith and the power of love.“[Agnes] riveting, powerful, electrifying drama […] the dialogue crackles.” – New York Daily

 

“There is only one thing I fear in life my friend…One day the black will swallow the red,” declares Mark Rothko. Red depicts the dynamic struggle between two artists from conflicting generations. During the creation of the monumental Seagram murals, world renowned abstract expressionist Mark Rothko and his young assistant Ken, battle over the meaning and relevance of modern art.

 

Topping off our Festival, internationally acclaimed master Mime artists, Rick Wamer & Grant Bashore, have created original pieces for Mime & Scene Showcase. Rounding out our celebration, TheatreLab students ranging from their first through third years will be performing challenging scenes from Shakespeare and contemporary works.

In order to bring all the elements of what is taught in the Stanislavsky System of Psychophysical Actions and Active Analysis performance in full-length plays is required, and we are thrilled to offer this for the first time to our Tucson base. Five of our incredibly dedicated students will be completing their third year of training in both Agnes of God and Red.
The Bennett TheatreLab offers professional conservatory style actor training to the local community in Tucson, Arizona. We believe every actor with talent has a spark of genius. The goal of our System of training is to identify that spark, bring it to the fore, and develop the actor’s technical skill and confidence to do so independently.

Located in the Historic Y in Tucson, Arizona, The Bennett TheatreLab & Conservatory strives to provide professional acting conservatory training that offers an alternative to the expensive academic approach of a University. We work to provide a training ground that will give the talented amateur the tools, skills, and confidence to successfully approach a professional career in theatre and film; and contribute to the cultural life of our community.
