Alchemical Theatre Company Event:
Behind the Curtain
July 20, 2019
Alchemical Theatre Company invites you to an exclusive, one-night-only behind the curtain experience. With a focus on performance, training, and education, this professional theatre company pushes the boundaries of traditional theatre using the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries to inspire observations relevant in today's society. Patrons will have exclusive access to a bespoke piece crafted specifically for this very special event: "In blood, stepped in so far - The Macbeths,” an exploration of the ramifications of murder on a couple's relationship. In this two-person adaptation of Macbeth, professional classical actors Christopher Marino (winner of the 2019 Star News Award for Best Director) and Esther Williamson (nominated for Best Actress) will take on the journey of the Macbeths, as they plot, carry out, and cover up the murder of the King of Scotland. Alchemical's college-aged training program, Make Trouble, will perform excerpts of Shakespeare from their 5-week intensive. Robin Post will showcase the Shakespeare and Autism program working alongside a team educators, students and children on the autism spectrum. A few other surprises are also in store! All ticket sales for the evening will support Alchemical Theatre Company's current and future programming.
Make Trouble Summer Intensive:
Midsummer Night's Dream and Timon of Athens
June 17 - July 21, 2019
The tragedy of a spendthrift with Make Trouble
Timon is renowned for his hospitality, but when called to pay his debts, he must confront hard truths about the authenticity of human motivations. This production is performed and directed by Alchemical Theatre Company’s Make Trouble, an actor training intensive and repertory company in Shakespeare, Ensemble, and Devising for university actors and recent graduates.
Love, confusion, and hilarity abound with Make Trouble
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of William Shakespeare’s finest and most popular comedies. Love, confusion, and hilarity abound as Theseus, the Duke of Athens, seeks to marry Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. In the forest, fairies tinker with the magic of manipulation, and Athenian craftsmen rehearse a play for the duke and bride-to-be. This production is performed and directed by Alchemical Theatre Company’s Make Trouble, an actor training intensive and repertory company in Shakespeare, Ensemble, and Devising for university actors and recent graduates. Make Trouble nurtures and trains emerging artists as a fiercely generous and courageous ensemble of theater-makers from around the world, for this summer and for enduring collaborations together.
