To quote Mr. Stewart, a fictional character in the historical drama, the events of this play are '.....by and large, true'." Theater Arts Dept. Chair, Jill Lincoln, declares "It is said one of our jobs in theater is to imagine the future, live in the present, and recognize the past at the same time. This is a moment that requires vision, courage, and most importantly faith. The style of theater might shift to meet the times and include cutting edge projections or virtual platforms but the art of storytelling is God's creation." click here

The Aran Islands - In the grey, sea-battered landscape of the Aran Islands, full of mist and wild rain, hearth is home and storytellers regale with tales by the fire. When John Millington Synge traveled to these remote islands upon the advice of WB Yeats in 1898, he discovered a bleakly primitive, mystical land that would inspire him for the rest of his life, leading to canonical works in Irish theatre, including The Playboy of the Western World and Riders to the Sea. The Aran Islands: A Performance on Screen is a haunting and visceral experience built around "a hypnotic performance" by Brendan Conroy, one of Ireland's finest actors, as he captures the spirit of Synge in Joe O'Bryne's theatrical adaptation of Synge's early work, "The Aran Islands." This play has been reimagined for digital presentation, transporting audiences to a distant world. click here

Playing With Our Food - So, how have you been staying sane during the past year of lockdown? That's the question The Magnetic Theatre asked one "quaranteam" of actors, and while it remains to be seen how much sanity they've maintained, the answer is, "Playing With Our Food!" Get ready for a weird, wild, hilarious feast of gustatory one-act plays selected, directed, and performed by Tabitha Judy, Strother Stingley, and Tippin. Each taking turns at the directing trough, this "food group" of artists serves up a heaping helping of dark comedy, absurdity, and silliness in the course of four quirky short plays by playwrights from around the country. "Three Women and an Onion," written by Ryan Bultrowicz, finds a Kafkaesque purgatory in an errant allium. Evan Baughfman's "The Last Beans in the Box" explores the secret lives of young wizards' least favorite sweets. Jackie Martin's "Cookies for Bethany" warns of the dangers of taking things that aren't yours. And "37 Scenes, and a Watermelon," by Ian Downes, asks the question, "Do they always cry so much?" So, order some dinner, get comfy with your TV tray, and tuck in to this smorgasbord of tasty theatrical tidbits, delivered via live-stream direct to your living room! click here

Martin Luther King Jr.: A Personal Portrait-Online - A special online presentation of the 1965 documentary Martin Luther King Jr: A Personal Portrait will be held on Thursday, March 25, at 8 p.m. via Zoom. Following the screening, Emmy Award-winning cinematographer George Silano, who filmed the footage over the course of a week in December 1965, will join Brenda Simmons of SAAM for a question-and-answer session. Martin Luther King Jr: A Personal Portrait is an intimate and candid glimpse at the life of America's great Civil Rights leader, at a high point in his work and the Civil Rights Movement. Filmed in his Atlanta home over the course of a week in December 1965, the documentary introduces Dr. King shortly following his winning of the Nobel Peace Prize and the passage of the The Civil Rights Act. Dr. King speaks openly with the film's producer, journalist Arnold Michaelis, about his position within the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War, and the notion of sacrificing one's own life in the fight for a higher cause. The film includes rare footage of a discussion with King's wife, Coretta, who provides her own unique perspective of their home life and his activism. Tickets are free; email registration is required. Arnold Michaelis is a renowned television producer and journalist, who over the course of his career interviewed such important cultural figures as John Wayne and Leonard Bernstein to Eleanor Roosevelt and Indira Gandhi. To help create the film, Michaelis hired freelance cinematographer, George Silano, who would later rediscover the footage in 2012 in the archives of the University of Georgia, where the film had been kept following Michaelis' death in 1997. click here

Electric Island - Electric Island is a new musical conceived and written by Rachelle Rak with music and additional lyrics by Steven Jamail. This developmental project tells the real stories of women working on Broadway: those working hard to go from show to show and aren't the recognized stars above the marquee. Shining light on women of all ages, ethnicities, and sexual orientations, Electric Island illuminates how these performers have navigated the highs and lows of a life in the theater--on stage and off. The show was created in response to the Broadway shut-down due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Rak began working on this project with her friends and colleagues via Zoom rehearsals and email exchanges. The show is indicative of the time we live in and the promise of the return of live theater. click here

Prometheus Bound - Through the prism of racial and gender injustice, Prometheus Bound is a protest against the discrepancy between what's legal and what's right, against oppression veiled as order. Director Ran Xia sets Howard Rubenstein's adaptation of Aeschylus's Prometheus Bound against a backdrop of the tumultuous American socio-political climate. Prometheus Bound is fully designed and staged for an audience of no one in The Tank's 98-seat theater. Instead, it is captured for the screen by Iris Media Works as a purely cinematic experience, with masks, original music and deeply compelling performances of the late Rubenstein's visionary text. The cast for Prometheus Bound includes Sophia Aranda, Juan Arturo, Olivia Rose Barresi, Chloe Simone Crawford, Brenda Crawley, Iván Hernandez, Macy Lanceta, Alice Marcondes, and Kaila Wooten. click here
