For the first time, Theatre B’s B.E.A.T. Program is collaborating with NDSU’s Department of Theatre Arts to offer the Performing Arts Program of North Dakota Governor’s Schools.
Students will work in an ensemble-based environment to create and perform a highly creative theatrical production that will tour to multiple locations across North Dakota. Students will also train in rigorous performance techniques, including Viewpoints and Suzuki.
This year’s Giving Hearts Day is tomorrow, February 13.
Giving Hearts Day is a 24-hour online give-a-thon. This is our second year participating in the event, which is jointly hosted by Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation.
Your gift on Giving Hearts Day supports the mission of Theatre B: to engage regional audiences through innovative theatrical productions that are culturally and artistically invigorating.
“Theatre is an art that needs both the artist and the audience, which takes a lot of resources,” says Carrie Wintersteen, Theatre B’s executive director. “In turn, theatre gives back by creating community and being the keeper of our stories.”
All donations are made at impactgiveback.org. Dakota Medical Foundation or community donors match gifts of $10 or greater.
“When we presented ‘ReEntry’ at the V.A. a lot of people in that room had experiences like that, so it almost felt like we were giving a voice to their story.” – Keith Huff
Theatre B has been a part of numerous entertaining, provocative and powerful productions. As we’re getting ready for Giving Hearts Day, we invited Katie Smith, Keith Huff and Brad Aune to talk about their experiences with the production of ReEntry.
The day has finally arrived – GruesomePlayground Injuries opens tonight at 7:30 p.m.!
The play is a series of vignettes, focusing on the relationship of two quirky individuals – from the moment they meet as wounded eight-year olds to the succeeding moments they become reunited within the next thirty years.
