Live Art: I’ve Got You

Film Premiere at the Byrd Theatre
June 26th at 2:30pm and 5pm

Join us for an afternoon of creative magic coming to life through the 45-minute film Live Art: I’ve Got You. The youth, with and without disabilities involved, spent months exploring ways to express through movement, performance, and music how we all take care of each other. With Emmy Award-Winning filmmaker Martin Montgomery behind the camera, Live Art youth collaborated with local musicians, artists, and educators to create each piece.  Attend the event RED CARPET READY and sit side-by-side with the actors and creators of Live Art as they experience the film for the first time.

Monty Python’s Spamalot:  School Edition

July 28-31, outdoors at SPARC

Direction by Chelsea Burke
Music Direction by Elle Meerovich
Choreography by Breezy Potter
Stage Management by Em Bochette

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”

Tickets on sale in June.

Spectrum Presents:  Orientation

Devised by the Spectrum Youth Ensemble

PERFORMANCE DATES:
Friday, March 11 at 8:00 pm
Saturday, March 12 at 8:00 pm
Sunday, March 13 at 2pm

Meeting new people is always difficult. But for the members of the Gender and Sexuality Acceptance Club, orientation day is a lot more than just orientation. See how intersectionality plays a part in what should be an open community of students. How will orientation go? How will they address issues within the group and who will come out on top? Join the Spectrum Youth Ensemble to answer these questions and examine your own biases.

George Orwell’s Animal Farm

Adapted by Ian Wooldridge
Directed by Heather Falks
With Dramaturgy and Stage Management from Emily Bochette

PERFORMANCE DATES:
Friday, March 25 at 7:30pm
Saturday, March 26 at 2pm & 7:30pm
Sunday, March 27 at 2pm

George Orwell’s satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: “Some are more equal than others.” The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer’s place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence. This dramatization remains faithful to the book’s plot and intent and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message.

For COVID Safety, all attendees must show proof of full vaccination (with a valid photo ID) or show proof of a recent (48-hour prior to arrival) negative COVID test. Fully vaccinated means 14 days after the second dose of a double-dose vaccine or 14 days after a single-dose vaccine.

All patrons, vaccinated or not, are required to be masked on SPARC’s campus. No exceptions.

 

Tickets will be on sale February 2022.
