Orpheus & Eurydice - Reading

Hear renowned playwright Judith Walsh White read her latest play, Orpheus & Eurydice. The play is based on the Greek myth and written in contemporary language. Judith will be joined by her husband, Chris White and together they read all the roles.

  • When: Saturday, April 13, 4:00 - 5:00 pm
  • Where: Traveling Players Studio
  • Cost: Free! (please use link below to reserve your spot in advance)

 

The first performance of Orpheus & Eurydice will take place this July, showcasing the talents of the students enrolled in Traveling Players’ Mythology Ensemble, a 2-week theatre summer camp. These young performers will perform in the play’s World Premiere.

Orpheus & Eurydice is the 10th script that Traveling Players has commissioned from award-winning playwright Judith Walsh White for our youngest performers.  Two of those ten scripts have subsequently been published, with Traveling Players performers listed as the original cast – an honor professional actors work their whole careers hoping to achieve. These plays have since received performances in Australia, Saudi Arabia, China, Canada, the UK, and Gibraltar, as well as throughout the US, including The Actor’s Theatre of Louisville.

Limited spots remain in the Mythology Ensemble this summer – audition soon! All roles are still available.

Embedded Bias in Classical Literature

In this conversation, Ryan Fields (Shakespeare Ensemble Director) and Morgan Shotwell (Thespian Ensemble Director) will help you explore the ways theatre artists tackle the complex and sometimes hidden biases in classical theatre. How do we recognize them and adapt them for a modern audience?

Girl Scouts

Spend a creative and fun-filled day with your troop playing theatre games and leave with TWO new patches on your vest!

  • Theatre Fun Patch
  • Playing the Past: Junior Badge

The day starts with warm ups and theatre games, as you learn about acting and improv. Then, build on those new skills to do acting scenes and design your own characters!

Your troop gets to choose the focus for the day – Spooky Witches or Greek Mythology!

Theatre is all about bonding and team building! Scouts will leave with fun memories and a better appreciation of all members of their troop.

Please note: There is an 8 scout minimum and a fee of $60 per scout.
