2014 was a very exciting year for RLT. Here are just a few reasons why:
~ In February we added three new company members!
~ In April we produced the world premiere of Hand Grenades by RLT member Monica Shea Giordano at the Ithaca Fringe Festival, which won the Audience Favorite Award!
~ In September we produced our second mainstage and another world premiere, The Lion & The Clown: A Rumi Lovesong for Beauty & the Beast by RLT member Ellen Morbyrne, at the Northampton Community Arts Trust Building and at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke!
~ In November we hosted our first House Play featuring Monica Shea Giordano's The Great Adventures of Samson!
2015 is looking very bright for us. We are beginning our nine month exploration of Shakespeare’s Queen Margaret this week, along with two wonderful Artists-in-Residence, Megan McGrath and Julianne McGourty. We are also hosting our second House Play on Saturday, teaching a Real Live Workshop on January 31st, presenting a Spring Acting Workshop starting February 9 taught by acting coach and RLT member Toby Bercovici, and continuing to develop The Lion & The Clown throughout the year in preparation for touring.
You can get a sneak peek into our process and upcoming events by checking back here! We’ll be posting updates every Friday from company members, stories, pictures, secrets, and more.
This cannot be said enough – THANK YOU to everyone who supported us in 2014. Without you, RLT would still just be a wonderful “what if” in our founding members’ heads.
Until next time,
