What do mayflies, a washing machine, and Trotsky all have in common? They are all part of the seven silly original plays by David Ives that are being presented by the Upper School Drama Department. Come and watch these 25 spectacular actors celebrate the lunacy of this remarkable, contemporary author in the black box theatre in the MEW. Seats are limited so be sure to purchase yours below.
Dinner at Eight
Emma Levine is the Student Director.
During the Great Depression, society matron Millicent Jordan has bigger problems: she is planning a dinner and Lord and Lady Ferncliff have just accepted.As her daughter Paula's romantic complications mount and her search for an "extra man" to complement former stage star Carlotta Vance proves fruitless, the lady and her guests are caught in a roundelay of wealth, loss, love betrayal and the disintegration of the accepted social order.
The musical comedy Anything Goes will be presented by the Head-Royce Fine Arts Department. Don’t miss this silly and fun musical which includes Cole Porter’s musical favorites like “I Get a Kick out of You”, “Let’s Misbehave” and “Blow Gabriel Blow”.
Kathleen Ray and Emma Levine are directing the show with Robert Wells directing the music, Josh Tower leading the orchestra, Kim Agnew designing the choreography, Jim Graham designing the lights and set and Lisa Danz is designing the costumes.
Letters to Sala
Adapted from the book Sala’s Gift by Ann Kirschner and based on a true account, Letters to Sala is a remarkable story of a young girl's survival during wartime Germany. Over a period of five years in seven Nazi labor camps Sala Garncarz Kirschner kept more than 350 hidden letters. Sala kept the painful secret for 50 years before revealing the cache to her grown daughter, Ann. The letters, which were displayed in a special exhibition at the New York Public Library in 2006, are an important addition to Holocaust research, called, as one journalist noted, "the greatest find since Anne Frank's diary."
