Let's just get rid of the elephant in the room, shall we? While underwear & inhibitions are eventually shed in UA Arizona Repertory Theatre's production of THE FULL MONTY, the moment this show is named for shows discretion & is done safely - for actors & audience members alike - through the magic of theatre. 


Make no mistake, though. This musical set in Buffalo, NY, adapted from the 1997 British-set film, earned 10 Tony Award nominations on Broadway. The male cast of characters' real nakedness comes from their insecurities as they journey forth to try to come to terms with their needs & their flaws, all the while being either encouraged or petrified by the women in their lives. 


You'll feel empathy for these men - & you'll cheer them on for more reasons than you think. Come laugh & be entertained by tomorrow's stars today in THE FULL MONTY! Press release attached.

UA’s Arizona Repertory Theatre presents THE FULL MONTY
Book by Terrence McNally, Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek
directed by Danny Gurwin

TUCSON, AZ - After seeing their wives’ fervor for a Chippendales touring group, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers who are low on prospects & cash decide to create a strip act for a local club. Jerry, who leads the ensemble, claims their act will be better than the Chippendales because they will go “the full monty” – strip all the way. As they rehearse, each character decides if he will or he won’t, & why. Funny & endearing, the men discover something that will not only change their lives financially, but will help them regain their self-esteem & enrich their bonds with those they love.

"The place I call home expands with every risk I take, every truth I share"

THE MIGRATION PROJECT, a theatrical docudrama exploring human migration and our efforts to claim home, opens November 14th in a collaborative workshop production with ZUZI! Dance Company.

Playwright Eugenia Woods utilized input from refugee, immigrant and indigenous communities to shape this theatrical work. Blending actual interview material with dramatic writing, Woods' play weaves together stories of 5 central characters from Mexico, The Hopi Nation, China, Zimbabwe, and one composite character representing the voices of refugee women from Iraq, Egypt, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The interactive performance asks audiences to consider what compels us to leave home, what are we forced to leave behind, and how do we attempt to create a new home in a foreign land.

Director Marc David Pinate of Borderlands Theater and Choreographer Nanette Robinson of ZUZI! are partnering in creating the physical language of the play.

Performances will be held November 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 7:30 pm.

ZUZI! Theater, 738 N 5th Ave, Tucson

Tickets are $18, general admission. $15 for students, seniors and military.

ACTING FOR THE CAMERA, A Five week course at Access Tucson


From: Lisa Horner []
Sent: Tuesday, October 21, 2014 4:48 PM
Subject: Please Post



A Five week course at Access Tucson

Mondays 6-9 pm Nov 3-Dec 1, 2014



DVD Copy of Work

This course will teach you how to make the camera your friend and ally. You will understand the language of film and TV and precisely your role in that language. You and the camera are telling stories. You are linked by this invisible thread.  You will know what the story and the director demand. But you will feel comfortable in the sacred space in front of the lens. You and the camera must develop a symbiotic relationship. Alone, neither can have meaning. But together….both can generate infinite meanings.

This workshop will be conducted by director/writer Rob Walker who brings the experience of over 100 productions in the theater and a 15 year career directing and producing television, principally for BBC TV. He won a BAFTA award for best Miniseries and also a Best Series Award from the Royal Television Society for four films called Blind Justice.



"It's what I learn from the great actors that I work with. Stillness. That's all and that's the hardest thing."
 - Morgan Freeman

Everybody can act. Every little kid can act. Your kitten can pretend there is a big bad mouse out there to be stalked….

No. Acting is incredibly difficult and complex. It requires truth, imagination, originality and hard work. Acting for the camera is a special, peculiar and demanding skill. The moving picture machine is only 120 years old. Yet it has made a new art of story-telling which is the most popular art form available to us today: movies.


We will understand film language. We will tackle texts and record them on digital cameras. We will move up to scenes drawn from famous films, from literature and from contemporary plays. The challenge will grow increasingly demanding.

You will come away with a new understanding of acting for the camera. You will develop a new weapon in your armory. You will bring to film and TV a deeper understanding of the art of story-telling on film.

The work of the workshop will be recorded and made available to you at home. You can then review your progress and learn and relearn what you have achieved.

Hold onto your oven mitts and stay out of the kitchen! Church Basement Ladies is a musical celebration of the church basement kitchens everywhere and the wonderful, unsung women who work there.  Set in 1964-65, the show is a hilarious musical comedy and heartfelt reflection on the four women who tirelessly prepare the food and solve problems for the congregation at a rural Minnesota church.


The church basement ladies are portrayed by Waypoint Theatre regulars and include the elderly matriarch of the kitchen (Amy Lyons), a young bride-to-be (Sarah Carver and Choreographer), a jack-of-all-trades farmer’s wife (Waypoint’s Artistic Director, Melanie David), the best dressed cook in the church and Signe’s mother (Elizabeth von Isser) with the coffee-loving Pastor Gunderson (Wayne McKinley). Susan Wedel serves as the production’s Music Director. Church Basement Ladies is directed by Melanie David.


Together, these four “steel magnolias” of the church stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course as they cope with the changing world and changes within the church.  In the span of a year, they plan a record-breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter fundraiser and a steaming hot July wedding feast.


Church Basement Ladies will be Waypoint’s first production in their new performance venue, Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind’s Berger Performing Arts Center, located at 1200 West Speedway, two lights west of I-10, and is directed by Waypoint’s Founder and Artistic Director, Melanie David.

Lori Hunt gives a tour de force performance playing nine roles at Live Theatre Workshop.

The horror and the defiance of extreme wartime combat is brilliantly captured by Lori Hunt at Live Theatre Workshop in a heart-breaking portrait laced with bitter humor of Iraqi women smothered in their own country by the ambitions of men with power.


Iraqi-American playwright Heather Raffo wrote “9 Parts of Desire” after spending several years living among women in Iraq between the two Gulf Wars to gather their stories.


That humor comes from the determination of these women to maintain some sense of dignity despite their helplessness at the hands of others. One of the saddest stories is told by the one who suffered the least physical pain.


She was an accomplishment artist who chose to survive by painting nude female figures – a subject of extreme shame in the eyes of this proper society. But the paintings brought happiness to influential men in her circle of society


The same society that thinks it appropriate for parents to slay their own daughters who dare to become pregnant outside of marriage.


Some of the stories contain such brutal details, it took remarkable courage as an actor for Hunt just to take on these roles, subjecting her own psyche to the agony of living the experiences in order to tell the stories.


Additionally, Hunt gives each of the nine women a different set of mannerisms. A long black scarf becomes a shawl or other items of clothing; her body language changes to suite a child, a defiant adolescent, a cynical sophisticate and others; her accent shifts from Middle Eastern to British to American and back again.


As a performance, Hunt onstage alone deserves every possible accolade, as well as a standing ovation after every performance. Her telling of these stories directly to the audience lifts acting to an entirely new and far more personal level.


It's guaranteed that some of the stories will stay in your head for a long time. The U.S. Government's refusal to allow any significant video coverage has made the current 13-year conflict a kid of ghost war. Consequently we don't really know anything about the people living in this interminable killing field without borders.


9 Parts of Desire” will change that forever.


For centuries Vietnam was a lovely tropical country, until aggressive communists filled the leadership vacuum created by the departing French.


Now history is repeating itself in the Middle East with Muslim fanatics wanting to replace iron-fisted despots, reinstating traditional religious values and centuries-old political loyalties.


Once again the essential beauty of a mystical place -- this time dating back, literally, to the beginning of civilization – is shattered by unimaginable cruelty as detailed by these nine women.


An ancient Muslim saying, we are told, holds that God created sexual desire in 10 parts and then gave nine parts to women.


What that means, exactly, can't be said for there are probably as many interpretations as there are Muslims.


Those nine parts aren't labeled in Raffo's play, but she finds many tragic expressions of frustrated, damaged and destroyed lives in developing each of these nine monologues.


"9 Parts of Desire” continues through Nov. 15 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 0.m. Sundays, at Live Theatre Workshop, 5317 E Speedway Blvd. Tickets are $20 general admission, with discounts. All tickets the final Thursday before closing, $14.
