Theatre Antigo­nish in­vites com­mu­nity to sea­son launch

The Casket - - LOCAL -

Theatre Antigo­nish (TA) will host its an­nual sea­son launch and in­for­ma­tion ses­sion Thurs­day, Sept. 13.

The gath­er­ing will get un­der­way at 5 p.m. at St. F.X.’S Bauer Theatre.

Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to come and hear about TA’S line-up for the 2018-19 sea­son, some ex­cit­ing new com­mu­nity part­ner­ships and ways for any­one to be­come in­volved.

Now en­ter­ing its 44th year, TA is a pro­fes­sion­ally-led com­mu­nity theatre or­ga­ni­za­tion, of­fer­ing high qual­ity pro­duc­tions at the Bauer Theatre dur­ing the fall and win­ter months.

As a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, TA brings together St. F.X. stu­dents and mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity to work together on all as­pects of the plays, in­clud­ing act­ing, de­sign­ing, set-build­ing, sound and light and pro­mo­tions.

Along with the un­veil­ing of the TA line-up by artis­tic di­rec­tor An­drea Boyd, peo­ple will learn about op­por­tu­ni­ties to par­tic­i­pate both on-stage and off-stage and sign up for au­di­tions or vol­un­teer roles.

Boyd and guests will also

an­nounce some ex­cit­ing new part­ner­ships and ad­di­tions to the reg­u­lar pro­gram.

As in past years, there will be a call out for ac­tors, stage man­agers, de­sign­ers, ush­ers, sew­ers, builders, pub­li­cists, and tech­ni­cians.

No prior ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, and new par­tic­i­pants are wel­come in all as­pects of the pro­duc­tions.

The Bauer Theatre is a busy place, hav­ing just wrapped up a very suc­cess­ful sum­mer with the pro­fes­sional com­pany Fes­ti­val Antigo­nish Sum­mer Theatre.

“It has been a great sum­mer with Fes­ti­val Antigo­nish,” FAST and TA man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Reema Fuller said.

“Now it is time, once again, for our tal­ented com­mu­nity to have their moment in the spot­light and on the stage.”

She added Boyd has pro­grammed “an ex­cel­lent sea­son” for TA.

“We can­not wait to an­nounce the pro­gram at the launch. We rec­og­nize Septem­ber is a busy time for many peo­ple so the ac­tual event will be short – un­der an hour – but there will be an op­por­tu­nity to speak with var­i­ous mem­bers of the team,” Fuller said.
