A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT……………..

I had a great time at the actors workshop at Riverfront Playhouse  with Michael  Gilboe. I learned several new techniques for ‘spotting’ opportunities for best performance style. Looking forward to next Saturday and the Director’s workshop. Thank you Michael.

Two Plays For the Price of One……

THE COST OF WINNING
AND
NONE OF THE ABOVE

Production runs July 7 to August 5

 

THE COST OF WINNING

A drama by Denise Derk

Directed by Michael Gilboe and Denise Derk

For some teens, college is a given. For others, it is a nearly unobtainable dream, but possibly within their grasp if they can outplay and outshine all the others on the gridiron. Two teen boys struggle to decide how far they will go to make their athletic ambitions a reality in this gripping play that explores the pressures on today’s young athletes to win at all costs. It combines a coming of age story for life-long best friends with intrigue and subterfuge by the town leaders to bring glory once again to their fading town. An honest look at the game that rules Friday nights in countless communities across America.
