The Mamai Theatre Company tackled Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, and in the midst of the running dates, it's not too late to catch a show. Plus, we hear from Raymond Bobgan of the Cleveland Public Theatre on how the organization is celebrating 20 years of it's Student Theatre Enrichment Program. Afterward, we get the scoop on how the Inlet Dance Theatre is shaking up their 14th performance at Cain Park.
The Cleveland Public Theatre celebrates two decades of their Student Theatre Enrichment Program (STEP) by giving the public performances of their original play, Now the City Dreams, similar to Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. The show runs from Thursday, July 31 through Sunday, August 10 in various locations.
The Inlet Dance Theatre has performed free shows at Cain Park for the past 14 years, but this year, on July 30 and 31, they will send students from their Summer Dance Intensive to shake things up at the Evans Ampitheater.
Christine McBurney, co-artistic director of the Mamai Theatre Company, directed Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia. She gives us some secrets of how they rose to the challenge and tells us why we should take advantage of the remaining showtimes at Pilgrim Church at Lincoln Park, Historic Tremont.
