2016-17 Season

The Society for the Love of St. Francis

Written and directed by David Fancy

 

A female Catholic priest finds her way to a small parish in rural Nova Scotia where a group of youth in a Church-run orphanage have miraculous interactions with animals. As she promotes these youth for sainthood through the Church hierarchy, she discovers a variety of uncomfortable truths about the Church and its history that threaten to change the institution beyond recognition.

 

Exploring the relationship between animals and religious practice will provide much opportunity for the exploration of iconography, ritual practice, and the ways in which we are intimately complicit with environmental degradation.

 

Involving religious groups, animal welfare organizations and others will be very integral to a successful series of Open Studio presentations.

Jacque Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris

Directed by Daniel Abadie

 

This is a musical review, consisting of 25 songs written by famous Belgian singer/songwriter Jacques Brel. Brel composed literate, thoughtful and theatrical songs that gave him incredible popularity first in France and then throughout the world.

 

These 25 songs are performed by four vocalists, two male and two female. Jacques Brel provided most of the music and french lyrics, and Eric Blau and Mort Shuman were responsible for the English translations and multi-vocal arrangements.

 

The original show was premiered off-Broadway on January 22, 1968 at the Village Gate Theatre, in Greenwich Village, and run there for four years.

  • I was totally unprepared for the quality of Khalida. It was mesmerizing, compelling, frightening and beautiful all wrapped into one. It was an absolutely stunning performance!
