Imagination Stage's Speak Out On Stage Ensemble to Present COLLIDE-O-SCOPE, 6/3-5
Imagination Stage's Speak Out On Stage Ensemble will perform Collide-O-Scope, a musical conceived by members of the Speak Out On Stage (SOOS) Ensemble, June 3-5, 2016 in the Christopher and Dana Reeve Theatre. Collide-O-Scope is written by Amanda Zeitler and composed by Deborah Jacobson.
Collide-O-Scope runs in Imagination Stage's Reeve Theatre June 3-4, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. and June 5, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person, and may be purchased online at www.imaginationstage.org, at the Imagination Stage box office, or via phone at 301?280?1660.
"Set in a mysterious location, music, drama, and dance collide in this cosmic comedic exploration into the past, present and future. Collide-O-Scope reminds us how we are all connected and that some things never change in the most imaginary way," explains director LeeAnet Noble.
Comprised of 23 students from across the DC metro area ranging from grades 4-6, the Speak Out On Stage Ensemble is an audition-based, year-long program dedicated to creating a new musical conceived by Imagination Stage Students. During their first semester, students build their acting and musical theatre performance skills while also collaborating on script and music ideas for their show. They work with artistic staff in a variety of mediums (improvisational activities, discussions, research, character exercises, etc.) to build inspiration for their play. Students also attend acting technique class with their director, building skills and vocabulary that will help them in rehearsal later in the year. The playwright and music composer complete the original script and score while the director works with a professional design team on production elements for the show.
Directed by LeeAnet Noble, Collide-O-Scope is supported by an entire team of professional designers and artists, including Jason Arnold (Lighting Designer), Celestine Ranney-Howes (Costume Desinger), Audrey Bodek (Scenic Designer), and Debbie Jacobson (Music Director and Composer).
