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 January 9 and January 23, 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.

"MUSIC MAN" CREATES A LONGING FOR INNOCENCE AND MARCHING BANDS

By Chuck Graham, TucsonStage.com

 

photo by Tim Fuller

In River City, Harold Hill (Bill English), left, shares his vision with townsperson  Ewart Dunlop (Lawrence E. Street).

If you are inclined to miss the sweet innocence that once filled those good old days of yesteryear, you need to spend some time with Arizona Theatre Company's beaming presentation, “The Music Man.”

Filled with eager enthusiasm and optimistic smiles, a heart-warming good time is guaranteed by ATC's own David Ivers directing this production of the Meredith Wilson classic.

Not only only is this cast always in a good mood, but the elaborate, ever-changing scenic design by Scott Pask is so clever it occasionaly upstages the actors.

Stretching some two stories into the overhead rigging, tall backdrops depict the proud buildings and countryside of River City, Iowa, in the early 1900s, both as a pastoral picture postcard and downstage as myriad scenes on picturesque front porches, all around the town square and – certainly – inside the train car full of traveling salesmen approaching the station and singing about how, to be succesful in Iowa, you have to know the territory.

This evergreen show debuted on Broadway in 1957. Color television networks were still a few years off. The rest of the world looked at the United States as that gleaming city on the hill.

Pask with his marvelous moving set has created such a larger-than-life atmosphere that, coupled with astoundingly authentic-looking period costumes by Margaret Neville, it is very easy to instantly buy in.

Once you make that 100 years plus leap from today's chaos to the quaint River City folk convinced they can be just as talented as anybody else in this vast country, anything is possible.

Enter Henry Hill (Bill English), a toothy guy in a plaid vest, tailor made for these empty plains of insecure dreamers who have no problem believing their awkward children can blossom into inspiring musicians in a marching band, with instruments and uniforms to match.

Hill, who doesn't know a lick of music, figures he can charm the citizenry to pay big bucks for all the trappings of uniforms, instruments, music and music lessons, to combat that insidious threat to River City's rambunctious youth by a recntly opened pool hall.

We sophisticates sitting in the audience, silenced cell phones in our pockets, become willing partipants in this wonderful joke.

Standing up for River City's decent people, and determined to defend her own virginity, is lovely Marian the librarian (Manna Nichols), blessed with a soaring soprano voice, as well. She is also the town's music teacher and instantly spots Henry Hill as a phony.

When it comes to staging a winning production of “Music Man,” not only do you need to know the territory, you need to have a magnetic Marian and a slippery Harold Hill.

To satisfy persnickety people and other perfectionists, Nichols needed to project more energy. Marian is, after all, the city's gatekeeper of ethics and wisdom. She should be polite but dynamic.

English has all the sunny optimism he will ever need for that role, though he lacks a dark side that would give his character more depth. If he never seems like a true threat, we are left to just wait around for the happy ending,

The barbershop quartet of grumpy local councilmen sounds smooth and mellow. Even better, they feel completely believable proving music does have the power to bring us all together.

Danny Scheie got extra applause as the goofy Mayor Shinn, happy to be leaping way over the top exaggerating misprounounced words, phrases and everything else in his path.

Meredith Wilson's songlist includes “Rock Island (Ya Gotta Know the Territory),” “Ya Got Trouble (Right Here in River City),” the iconic “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Shipoopi,” “Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little,” “Marian the Librarian” and that timeless finisher, “Til There Was You.”

In recent years ATC brought us a powerful “Fiddler on the Roof” and an awsome “Man of La Mancha.” This season, the company's celebration of classic Broadway is just for fun. Which, considering all the anger filling the news every day, makes this show an excellent choice.

"The Music Man” continues through Dec. 30 (no shows Dec. 23-26) with performances at various times Tuesdays through Sundays in the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave. Tickets are $46-$86. For details and reservations, 622-2823, or arizonatheatre.org

 

IMAGINATIVE WHIMSY IS THE MAIN INGREDIENT OF WOLFE BOWART'S "CLOUD SOUP"

By Chuck Graham, TucsonStage.com

 

photo by Tim Fuller (with thanks to Kate Breakey)

 

If you are older than 12, this is your chance to feel like a kid again. If you're younger, it's a chance to experience magic unplugged. Unenhanced by special digital effects of any kind.

We are talking “Cloud Soup,” a solo piece of fantasy performed at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theater by Wolfe Bowart, an artist in the medium of physical theater. You could also call it “silent theater.” There is recorded music, often with a carnival or klezmer flare.

In Bowart's performances there are lots of sight gags, humor without words. Comedy that stretches the imagination beyond pantomime and pratfalls, taking punch lines from a time hundreds of years ago when most people spoke a local language, not a national, official language.

Finding work as a standup comedian once you went outside the king's court was difficult back then. So traveling entertainers had to find other ways to attract attention that didn't require speaking. Bowart has mastered many of these ways, pulling audiences in with his effortless manner.

"Cloud Soup” doesn't have a story to tell. It is built on the premise that if you didn't like the last bit, you may like the next one. He makes having a short attention span seem like a good thing.

For example, one brief skit creating the illusion of a mouse poking its head out of a match box leads Bowart to a trick with three bowler hats that transition into him juggling plates...and so it goes.

Having so many facets to enjoy makes this show a perfect way for introducing children to the concept of watching adults perform on stage. That is – seeing real, three-dimensional people you can reach out to touch. Much different from touching a picture on a screen in your hand.

Instead of having other actors on stage, there are lots of props and lots of creativity, such as turning a floor mop into a cheerful puppy. Or watching Bowart take a handful of feather dusters and turn himself into a big bird. Not the Big Bird from Sesame Street, more like a high strutting, short-winged ostrich.

Or, awhile later, throwing a blanket over himself and, after flopping around underneath the cover, becoming a long-necked turkey that emerges slowly from within. At first it isn't clear what this creature might be, but by the end it definitely was a turkey.

Other times, with a completely different attitude and bag of tricks, he became one of those hapless silent movie figures for whom life is a continuous series of discoveries.

“Cloud Soup” concludes this season of the “Scamp Family Theater.” This production will continue in the new year with 7:30 p.m. performances Jan. 10-11, again at 2 p.m. Jan. 12-13, at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre in the Historic Y, 738 N. Fifth Ave.

Tickets are $28 general admission, $20 if you are under 30, $15 if you are a teacher or student, $12 if you are 10 or under. For details, scoundrelandscamp.org

 

Open call auditions for Jewish women's performance showcase

Local woman seeks acts for all-female talent showcase at Tucson J

 

https://azjewishpost.com/2018/local-woman-seeks-acts-for-all-female-talent-showcase-at-tucson-j/

Sara Lopez, a local wife, mother and opera singer, is curating a Jewish women’s performance showcase, by and for women, at the Tucson Jewish Community Center on Sunday, Jan. 6 at 7 p.m.

Having an all-female audience “allows women across the spectrum of Jewish practice and belief to participate,” says Lopez.

Lopez will hold open call auditions on Thursday, Dec. 13 from 6-8 p.m. at the Tucson J.  She has two comedians, a visual storyteller, an actress, and “a handful of singers” lined up for the auditions so far, and says she’d like to add dancers, poets and musicians.

Lopez created a series of similar events in Jerusalem when she was attending seminary in 2012-13, to give newly Orthodox women a platform for creative expression. “I didn’t want to choose between my faith and my performance talent as an opera singer,” she explains, adding that at the Jerusalem shows, she witnessed talents ranging from a South African salsa dancer to a German comedic poet. Lopez will perform an aria in French, German or Italian at the upcoming event.

“The Tucson J is proud to host this gathering for women, teens, and girls of all ages to celebrate their talents. We appreciate Sara’s leadership in this initiative and look forward to a fun evening on Jan. 6,” says Jennifer Selco, the J’s director of Jewish life and learning. A $10 donation is suggested.

For more information or to schedule an audition time, contact Lopez at (949) 682-6808 or sarac90@yahoo.com

Witness clever choreography with 25 performers offering fire dancing, acrobatics, aerial, and stilt dance.  This unique time of year has become important on many levels, both culturally and physically. Our ancestors have attached spiritual and social meaning to the solstice, to this holiday season, and to the northern winter. We dedicate this dance to our ancestors, listen to their stories, and take this joyous opportunity to celebrate this special place in Earth’s orbit.

This community-style event will be taking place during sunset overlooking the beautiful Catalina mountains. We encourage patrons to bring their own chairs and blankets as they take in the entertainment. Come early to get a great seat, purchase a hot beverage, and take in the winter spirit!

Cirque Roots Productions & Studio is a grassroots artist collective that was founded in 2011 with a vision to inspire the community to create and play through movement and dance. Based in an 1910's adobe warehouse in downtown Tucson located near Dunbar Springs and Barrio Anita, Cirque Roots created a space for the community to engage in circus inspired arts and to co- create in the community through conscious events and workshops. The Cirque Roots performance crew has been performing collectively over the past six years, created 5 original productions, and was nominated for a 2015 Lumies Award: Best Arts Organization.

Bookmans East (6230 East Speedway Blvd) will be performing our very first theatrical event The Christmas Tree by Norm Foster in our store on December 21st.

Two strangers. One Christmas tree left for sale on Christmas Eve. Each gives reason after reason why they are more deserving of the tree. And each story is more ridiculous than the last. The Christmas Tree is a comedy filled with laughter, loss, and a generous dose of Christmas spirit.

Join Bookmans East on Friday, December 21st from 6:00-7:20 to see The Christmas Tree by Norm Foster performed in our store! We are partnering with Short One Monkey Productions and the show will be performed by none other than Sean Jeralds and Joanne Robertson! Admission is 100% free and open to all ages/lovers of the theater! To reserve a seat, e-mail eastevents@bookmans.com.
