Focus, an Opera that Rocks Production, is a rock-n-roll touring show combining the talents of actors, musicians and dancers to present the story of a late 60's band in a multi-tiered live theatre experience.
The Focus experience was born after a series of interviews with individuals and families directly affected by war--specifically the Vietnam War--and by a culturally and philosophically torn America. The show's creators will be working with organizations, including the Gary Sinise Foundation, to give back to those whose stories inspired this work.
The Playdate is open to actors of all skill levels (ages 13+). Each class starts with fun/warm-up exercises that branch out to Meisner basic foundation work, improvisation, and cold reading skills. And for those who have monologues and/or scenes they want to work on they are welcome to bring them in too. As well as advanced Meisner students bringing in their level of work.Read More
The season’s kick-off is a grand New Year’s Eve celebration. Ground zero is OVO Beach on Maldonado Bay. We walked to the celebration, our apartment being just six blocks from the bay. This proved opportune as traffic was at a standstill. People filled every available patch of street, sidewalk, and sand. Elbowing our way towards the shore, we were absorbed into the throng of revelers, holding champagne in one hand to toast in 2019, smartphone in the other to record their presence. As the crowd counted down, corks popped and digital shutters snapped. At the stroke of midnight fireworks began all around Maldonado Bay. It must have been quite the sight if seen high up from a penthouse balcony or far off from a boat. The entire bay was a backdrop for a panorama of sparkling aerial dancers. Our view, down on the sand, was a bit more intimate; we were inside the fury, underneath a canopy of loud explosions and sizzling color. When the light show stopped, the all-night party started. Revelers, who had come a great distance and at great expense and were not going to waste a precious moment of their summer holiday, stayed to party. Those of us who lived here and enjoyed this paradise every day nonchalantly relinquished the beaches, clubs, and restaurants to the tourists. Echoes and reflections from the fete escorted us home.Read More
