In South Bend anyway. This will be your last chance to see South Bend Civic Theatre’s production of Intimate Apparel before the American Association of Community Theatres’ Competition in Tacoma, Washington. Here’s the skinny: Host: South Bend Civic and the Cast & Crew of Intimate Apparel
Type: Music/Arts – Performance
Date: Thursday, June 18, 2009
Time: 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Location: Campus Auditorium, Northside Hall, IU South Bend
Street: Northside Blvd – just West of Ironwood
City/Town: South Bend, IN
This event has 2 purposes: 1) to help raise the much needed funds to send our cast/crew of 10 and our gorgeous set to Washington state! and 2) to allow us the opportunity to perform in a theatre similar in style, size and capacity as that at the Pantages Theatre in WA! Now is your last and only chance to be a part of this award-winning and beautiful show as we prepare to represent the U.S. Midwest at Nationals!
Audience members will enter the theatre only to see a bare stage. As in competition, it is up to the cast and crew to “set the stage” before the eyes of the audience and adjudicators within 10 minutes only. (Our story takes place in 1905 New York City – we have beautiful woods, furniture, colors and costumes – a joy to watch come to life!) From there, the lights will dim and the show begins!
Our story follows a 35 yr old African American seamstress who lives in a boarding house and sews intimate apparel for women of all social backgrounds. She corresponds with a worker on the Panama Canal who proposes to her in a letter. She accepts, sight unseen, and he makes his way to New York City.
The cast includes:
CASSANDRA NWOKAH (Esther Mills)
BEN LITTLE (George Armstrong)
TABITHA LEE (Mayme)
ANTHONY PANZICA (Mr. Marks)
NATALIE DAVIS MILLER (Mrs. Dickson)
DANA VAGG (Mrs. Van Buren)
Matt Davidson (Technical Director, Lights)
Kyle Curtis (Stage Manager)
Alex Bowman (Sound)
Caela Barry (Costumes & Props)
Dana Vagg (Director)
Upon the completion of the show (the story, that is) the cast and crew will also STRIKE THE SET before the audience! This must also be done in no more than 10 minutes (however, we do it in four! *wink*) At this point, all audience members are invited to remain and offer their comments, suggestions, and well wishes!
FYI!!! Tickets may be purchased at the SB Civic Box Office, or by one of the cast and crew. It will be GENERAL ADMISSION SEATING – Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.!!! Hope to see you there! (And, thank you!!!)
