by Jerri Shafer on June 16, 2017 in Columbus

Join us in the park! Curtain Players is pleased to present Ara Vito's ALICE: A variation on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland in partnership with Westerville Parks & Recreation. Alice: A Variation on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is a new take on Carroll's classic tales crafting a story of a young girl named Alice Pleasance Liddell and the relationship she develops with Charles Dodgson (alias Lewis Carroll). Overcoming her parents' stifling indifference, Alice discovers her creativity through adventures on the other side of the looking glass, conquering her fears as she approaches a vision of her true self.  The play is framed within a conversation between Carroll and Liddell, who was the inspiration for the fictional Alice character. Performances run June 15th thru 24 th at 8:00 pm.  Bring lawn chairs and/or blankets as it's all free lawn seating (donations accepted). Parking will be available in the park along Alum Park Drive (accessible from W.

Photo Coverage: First Look at Exit Left's SEMINAR Photo Coverage: First Look at Exit Left's SEMINAR
by Jerri Shafer on June 09, 2017 in Columbus

In Seminar, a provocative comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy. Seminar performs June 9th thru 18th at the The Garden Theater, 1187 N. High St., Columbus, OH 43201.  Purchase tickets at:  http://shortnorthstage.org/calendar/v/619 (more...)
