Pacem Play!

Join the Pacem play!  At our first meeting, we will discuss and read from 2 or 3 different scripts. Plays we are considering include

  • “King Arthur” a humorous, valiant retelling of the familiar story;
  • “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”, a zany time-travel adventure loosely based on the Mark Twain novel;
  • “A Wrinkle in Time”;
  • or several one-act plays.

Join us this week and help us choose the play (and help to shape the roles and staging.)  It is also possible that you can join us after we have made the final choice of play, but some of the main roles may have already been assigned.  Regardless of the play we choose, students will have the opportunity to shape the script with their own ideas and improvisation; develop their acting skills; and participate in the technical side of the production.  Actors with all levels of experience are welcome.

Days: Thursdays March 5 through May 14 (no workshop April 19).  1 pm – 3 pm.  Performance 5 to 9 pm May 14

Fee:  $170 for enrolled Pacem Students; $190 for all others. (Fee is already included in full-time Pacem tuition

Instructor:  Bonnie Hooper

Please register by emailing by March 4

Please note that we had originally announced that our play would be “Arabian Nights”.  Our intention had been to engage students in ideas and literature from a different part of the world.  Upon consideration, however, we were concerned that we lacked the expertise and time to work with this material in a culturally sensitive manner, and have, therefore, decided to do a different production this year.
