ARHS Theatre News

It’s a busy time for ARHS theater.  Here are a few upcoming events of note:

1) The ARHS and Northampton Theater programs are teaming up with composer Jenny Giering and Eggtooth Productions to take part in a national day of performances of Natural Shocks – a one-woman play by Lauren Gunderson about gun violence in America – on April 20th at Northampton High School.  Ms. Gunderson was the most-produced playwright on American stages last year and developed this piece in response to the Parkland, FL shootings.  A Facebook link to the event is here:
2) I’ll be speaking at the Emily Dickinson Museum on a panel about performance and interpretation of Emily Dickinson’s works on April 19, based on an immersive show I developed for them in 2013 and 2015.  A flyer is attached.
3) The ARHS Theater Company is being honored with a SAMMY award from the Jones Library!  We’ll accept the word for “exceptional contributions to the literary culture of Amherst” on April 26.  The Facebook event is here:
4) Last but not least, the Theater Company is excited to present Sarah Ruhl’s Melancholy Play April 26-28 at ARHS at 7:30pm.  Directed by senior Michayla Robertson-Pine, the play has been produced, directed, designed and acted entirely by ARHS students.  Hurray!
