Thu 9/14 @ 2:30-4:30PM
The Shore Culture Center in Euclid is really ramping up its theater offerings now that it’s hired one of the area’s most gifted and passionate theater directors Terrence Spivey as artistic associate.
Now it’s joined with the Euclid Public Library to launch a series of theater workshops for teens led by Spivey that aims to give young people a well-rounded introduction to theater and excite them about its possibilities for creativity, expression and collaboration, focusing on the work of playwright August Wilson.
It starts Thu 9/14 with a screening of the documentary August Wilson: The Ground on Which I Stand, which explores the influences and inspiration of Wilson, one of the towering talents of 20th century playwriting whose works provided a powerful reading of the African-American experience in the U.S. during the century.
In later workshops, teens will explore building August Wilson scenes (Mon 10/23), August Wilson monologues (Tue 11/21) and present a poetry, monologue and scene showcase (Mon 12/11).
It’s free but registration is required. Go here.
