In the Fall of 2020, we will offer three online zoom productions that will live-stream to a private Facebook group. The first production will be for High School Aged Actors. The Middle School and Elementary productions will be announced shortly.
You can sign up for a zoom audition here.
After 9/11 our theater company in NYC, Andhow!, presented a reading series called Beginning The American Spirit, where we asked playwrights to respond to that phrase with the beginning of a play and then the audience responded with what possible endings could be. We subsequently produced this in 2002 at The Ontological Theater. ..At my best... is a beautiful exploration of America through the eyes of a 15-year-old boy who at the direction of a 100-year-old "Old Man Dad." makes a magical journey with a talking dog across the country to see the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. This play embodies everything we love about magical realism. And we can't wait to share it with our teens and with you.
Middle School and Elementary Zoom productions will be announced shortly.
We will offer 30 Seconds of Beauty, an outdoor, in-person, socially distant theatrical experience created by 5 groups of 6 kids over 5 thirty-minute rehearsals. Groups will be mixed ages, from 7-18. There will not be auditions, you just sign-up and show up and we will provide each participant with their own props to be brought home and then back to rehearsal and performance.
Think spinning umbrellas, large swaths of fabric that turn into all the creatures we want them to. Drum beats that lead us through a physical story created by kids under the trees, in the garden, highlighting the beauty around us. The goal is joy.
