Our B Emerging Artist Training summer program will produce the show “Big Love” by Charles L. Mee this summer. Longtime B fans will remember our production of his play, “Wintertime” in December 2006.
Fifty brides flee their fifty grooms and seek refuge in a villa on the coast of Italy in this modern re-making of one of the western world’s oldest plays, ‘The Danaids’ by Aeschylus. And, in this villa on the Italian coast, the fifty grooms catch up with the brides, and mayhem ensues: the grooms arriving by helicopter in their flight suits, women throwing themselves over and over again to the ground, and pop songs & romantic dances.
B.E.A.T. is an ensemble-based summer program for high school students and recent graduates that works closely with regional artists and members of the Theatre B ensemble. The training program focuses on the Viewpoints techniques and the Suzuki Method of Actor Training.
Auditions for B.E.A.T. will be on April 13 and 14 from 2-5 p.m. each day. No monologue is required, and come in flexible clothing, ready to move. Follow the blog for more information as the auditions draw nearer
