The Writers. Part II.

by carolyn with no comments

IT proudly announces crew additions to its Nov. 9-10 production, “The Writers”.    Technical Director is Norman McKnight, who interned last summer at the Santa Fe Opera.  Stage Manager is Gabe Brown, producer of his own theatrical company Urban Soul Theatre, and an accomplished actor/director.  “The Writers” has a co-presenter, and that is our friend, Imperial Calcasieu Museum. ICM Staff Devin Morgan is irreplaceable in his general assistance and support, and Executive Director Susan Reed embraces this third collaborative effort of ICM and IT.   Collaboration among the arts is indeed the model of the day for the performing arts.

The Writers. Part 1.

Grass does not grow under Itinerant Theatre’s feet! On Nov. 9-10 at 7pm IT produces “The Writers”.  Three feisty, determined, talented women entertain you in short, challenging monologues.  All three are one-woman plays written by Carolyn Woosley and are from her 13-piece Louisiana Women, the Monologues.  

Back by popular demand Joy Pace embodies “Maggie” (Margaret Dixon), America’s 1st female managing editor of a major periodical; and, “Rosa” (Hart), a budding Jewish intellectual hilariously tricked into becoming America’s 1st female cheerleader.  Woosley directs “Maggie” and “Rosa”.  Donna Rigdon Jones brings back the unmatcheable “Kate” (Kate Chopin), preeminent writer who explored issues of feminism, classism and racism — well ahead of her time (1890s).  Director is Carol Anne Gayle.  In 1999 Gayle premiered and eo-produced both “Kate” and “Rosa” with the Lake Charles Little Theatre, Adley Cormier Director.

Join us at Imperial Calcasieu Museum (ICM), Gibson Barham Gallery, 204 W. Sallier St..  7:00pm.  ICM is co-presenter of “The Writers”.  There will be two intermissions. Tickets are $10 and are available at this website or by calling 337.436.6275 (sales final).
