Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter February 2012

From the Nobles Theatre Collective



Greetings from the Nobles Theatre Collective (NTC). We are very excited about the productions in February and hope to see you at one or more of our events.

Three student-directed plays were presented Thurs., Feb. 2, at 5 p.m., and Fri., Feb. 3, at 6:30 p.m., in Towles Auditorium. The line-up of plays included If Girls Asked Boys for Dates written by Anne Coulter Martens and directed by Julia Brosseau '12; No Exit written by Jean-Paul Sartre and directed by Isabella Kursh '12; and Wanda’s Visit written by Christopher Durang and directed by Julianna Wright '12.

Feb. 15 and 16 bring the Middle School production of Drop Dead Juliet by Allison Williams.

The winter mainstage play, Museum, by Tina Howe, will be directed by Todd Morton and performed Wed., Feb. 22, through Fri., Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m., and on Sat., Feb. 25, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., in the NTC Atelier Theatre. Join us for this theatrical event during which 17 actors play 40-plus characters in an intimate theatre space constructed solely for this production. A link to purchase tickets will soon be posted in the calendar at www.nobles.edu.

Here is a short description of the play published in the Village Voice:

“…the most enchantingly tesserated play ever written. A little mosaic of events and incidents that crisscross one another in the contemporary gallery of a medium-sized art museum, Howe’s play has actions, but no “dramatic action” or “dramatic structure” as those things are normally understood. Its shape is musical, with the themes tossed back and forth from one set of gallery-goers to another, while its two climaxes-one high and transfiguring, the other a low despoliation of the gallery’s content-are treated with the same gently satiric tone of amused, compassionate detachment as everything else. If Mozart had been a TV producer, this is what a Candid Camera segment on art might have looked like.”

The NTC welcomes you to these exciting theatre productions.
