LWC Theatre plans exciting spring season of plays
The Lindsey Wilson College spring theatre season will open this semester with Student Directed Plays, followed by a Children's Theatre production of Wiley and the Hairy Man by Susan Zeder based on the classic children's novel, a blackbox staging of the Ibsen classic Ghosts translated by Lanford Wilson, the hilarious dark comedy Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley, also staged in blackbox, and ending with New Play Readings by LWC Theatre students.
"The spring is always an exciting time for us here in the Theatre Program, and this semester is no different," says Robert Brock, Director of the LWC Theatre Program.
Jeremy Cloyd, Instructor of Theatre at LWC says, "This semester is full of incredible plays, truly incredible new work by students, and amazing opportunities for our students to grow as theatre artists."
Cloyd is also directing Crimes of the Heart, the truly heartwarming and delightfully irreverent southern comedy about three sisters and their journey to understanding themselves and each other while dealing with some of life's most complex challenges. Cloyd tells us this is an exciting play for him specifically. "I've loved this play for a long time, but I think I'm most excited to get to direct it in blackbox here at LWC. These stories are so intimate that it only makes sense to bring the audience right up on stage to experience every bought of laughter and every tear with the actors."
Cloyd is referring here to the blackbox theatre that the program has created within V.P. Henry Auditorium since the Fall of 2014. A blackbox theatre consists generally of a very plain space with black walls and a flat floor in which the audience sits very close to the action to allow for an intimate theatrical experience. This has been a mainstay of the Theatre Program at LWC since the first blackbox production.
"We bring in seats and risers so that both the audience and the actors get to experience what theatre is like up close and personal," says Robert Brock. Brock is also directing Ghosts in blackbox for LWC Theatre.
With a healthy and ambitious mixture of new student work and classic theatre, this Spring's season is bound to have something for everyone. The schedule for the Spring LWC Theatre Season is:
