In this creative class, students will explore the mechanics and nuance of scene development and learn how approaching material from the playwright’s perspective can make them better actors. Students will create characters, craft believable dialogue, develop character conflict and relationships, and weave the characters into effective scenes with the guidance of the instructors. Participants will then dramatize their scenes for the group.

Super Saturday Poster

We are very excited to announce


part of the Fall 2015 RLT Youth Education Program!

Spend the day playing theatre games, stretching your imagination, and practicing the art of improvisation on Super Saturday, September 19, with instructors Chris Parker and Chris Davidson in IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES, for grades 4 – 12.

When a script calls for a fight or a fall, a stage combat choreographer is often called in to stage the action, making it look real yet at the same time keeping the actors safe. STAGE COMBAT AND STUNTS, with instructor Richard Bristow on Super Saturday, November 7, will focus on the basics and fundamentals of stage stunts from the actor’s perspective. Subjects covered will include safety, body awareness and partner relationships. For grades 7 – 12.

Beyond the RLT August 2015


Wendell Barnes

After you have enjoyed laughter (casks of it) and bubbly (hopefully not too much) from all six performances of “Drinking Habits,” you might be looking for some other house of worship in which to enjoy theatre!  And it abounds in Rome and Beyond the RLT.

The colleges are back in town and gearing up for their first productions.  Berry College is up first opening with the hilarious comedy by the playwright of “The Foreigner,” this one called “The Nerd.”  Larry Shue wrote only two comedies before his untimely demise in a plane crash at age 39, and this is the other one.  Don’t miss this but take tissues because you will laugh until you cry!  Performances are in the B.H. Young Theatre at Berry beginning Sept. 24th and it runs through Oct. 4th   at 7:30 p.m. with matinees on Sundays at 2:00 p.m.  Call the Berry College Theatre Company at 706-236-2263 for reservations.  Shorter University opens with their play the next night, Sept. 25th, and their production of Arthur Miller’s always timely classic drama, “All My Sons” will run until Sept. 29th nightly at 7:30 p.m. with a 2:00 matinee on Sunday.  Remember that the Callaway Theatre has less than 100 seats, so call early for a reservation at 706-233-7288.

Congratulations to Jamie, who will be performing at the Metropolitan Opera on the original date of her performance at the DeSoto. 

A note from Jamie:

HUGE news – I’ll be returning to The Metropolitan Opera this season!! I’ll be singing Giovanna Seymour in Anna Bolena, getting back to that sister vs. sister action with Sondra Radvanovsky, this time for the love of Ildar Abdrazakov!

The best part is that I still get to do my hometown theater benefit concert!! The folks at the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation were so kind in agreeing to push the concert back one day* so I can be in New York for opening night of Bolena. Continue reading
