BWW Review: St. Louis Actors' Studio's Intriguing LABUTE NEW THEATER FESTIVAL
by Chris Gibson - Jul 26, 2016

We're so lucky to have the Privilege of having the St. Louis Actors' Studio present the Labute New Theater Festival each year.

In addition, there are staged readings of the High School finalists who also submit their new works. While I was unable to attend the first part, I did get a chance to see the second, and was pleased with the results of this years' choices. It was a good mixture of styles and approaches, and it continues to be something our region should be very proud of. (more...)

BWW Blog: Emma VanDevelde - The Theatre That Raised Me
by Guest Blogger: Emma VanDeVelde - Jul 25, 2016

Last night at 501 Queens Road in Charlotte NC, the sound of laughter shattered the confines of the 13-row theater by transporting the audience into the world of 'The Drowsy Chaperone.' This musical, put on by Theatre Charlotte's Student Theatre Guild is the 5th STG musical and the 8th TC production I've had the Privilege of being a part of. In August of 2009 my feet entered Theatre Charlotte's doors for the first time. I smelled its smell. I stood in its wings. I accepted its welcoming invitation to audition for those 13 empty rows-all for the very first time. Little did I know that this audition for 'Annie' would mark the beginning of a beautiful relationship between a little girl with a dream and a little white theater awaiting a dream to foster. Little did I know that this smell would become my haven, these wings would become my comfort and this tiny theater would become my own little corner of the world. (more...)

BWW Blog: Paisley Haddad - Touring Theatre Saves The Arts In My Community!
by Guest Blogger: Paisley Haddad - Jul 19, 2016

This past fall my high school's theatre group travelled to local elementary schools to perform "Folktales For Fun", which connected folktales to different countries to teach kids all about different cultures. Some of the stories included Cinderella from Egypt (Rhodopis and Her Golden Scandals), The Three Hares (a take on the three little pigs) from Turkey, The Bremen Town Musicians from Germany, The Snake from Spain,  Why Bears Have Stumpy Tails from Norway,and How Tortoise Tricked Leopard . There were two casts, so that we could make it to more schools than we would have if we only had one cast and to not miss a lot of school ourselves. Our costumes were simple, but effective. The three headed snake was portrayed by three snake hats, the turtle was portrayed by a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles backpack on my back, and many other clever animal hats.  At first, I was a little curious on how the kids would respond to the play, because our teacher told the schools that it was geared toward 3rd to 5th graders. Which is always a tough audience. Once we got out to the schools, it was one of the most rewarding things that I have ever experienced. (more...)
