Beck Center for the Arts Announces THIS GIRL LAUGHS, THIS GIRL CRIES, THIS GIRL DOES NOTHING

Beck Center for the Arts has announced its first live and in-person play since the start of the worldwide pandemic, This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing.

Produced by Scott Spence, This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing reminds us we are all born of flesh and made of dreams. This tale brings to life the struggles and aspirations of three sisters as one walks the globe to find her purpose, one searches for adventure, and the third grows where she is planted. Years later their journeys convene in a lovely home in the woods, albeit with a truculent badger. Experience this brilliant piece of theater--perfect for audiences young and old alike-with actress Derdriu Ring, and director Eric Schmiedl as they light our imaginations on fire.

In anticipation of welcoming theater patrons back to the newly named Senney Theater Beck Center made a number of investments in HVAC and air filtration to provide a safe environment for patrons as they return to live theater. Actor's Equity Association mandates that masks be worn by all audience members. Therefore, Beck Center will require all staff, crew, and audience members to wear masks.

Now in his 31st season, Beck Center for the Arts' Artistic Director Scott Spence says, "I can't think of a better way to plunge back into the world of live theater where vibrant storytelling draws the audience in. This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, and This Girl Does Nothing tells the story of three very different sisters as they take life-altering journeys, and is brought to life by one of Northeast Ohio's preeminent actresses...Derdriu Ring. It's a story that is perfect for young and old alike, and you'll rarely get a chance to see anything quite like it on area stages."
