We are fortunate to have Third Rail Repertory Theatre's Artistic Director Scott Yarbrough on board to direct the second show of the season: Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. This acclaimed absurdist play, featuring physical comedy and Stoppard's sharp and witty use of language, is both a fun romp and an existential journey. Opens Feb. 8.
The final show, Eric Bogosian’s subUrbia, is directed by PAC Producing Artistic Director Beth Harper and centers on a group 20-somethings desperately seek meaning and direction in a mini-mall parking lot. subUrbia reflects the angst, inertia, and ultimately the anger felt by modern youth in suburban America. Opens Apr. 12.
Together the three shows will raise questions for our audience about looking beyond the limited view of our immediate circumstances to find a larger purpose and path in the world.
Resident creative team Tim Stapleton (scenic design), Jeff Forbes (lighting design), Chris Mikolavich (sound design) and Jessica Bobillot (costume design) will bring creative insight, cohesion and unification to the overall production values of the season.
Included in each subscription are tickets to the annual Graduate Showcase, where graduating Second Year students present scenes and monologues representing the culmination of their study at the Conservatory. The Showcase runs May 15-18, 2013.
Subscription prices for the 2012-13 Season of Plays range from $20-$80, and are available online at www.actorsconservatory.com or by calling (503) 274-1717.
