LWC Theatre moves forward with fall season digitally
The Lindsey Wilson College Fall theatre season will look a bit different this year. With the ongoing pandemic, LWC Theatre has taken the leap to recorded theatrical productions. This fall they will present Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters as a digital adaptation in three installments. In addition to this production, LWC Theatre will also present an adaptation of the classic Greek tragedy Oedipus at Colonus which will be adapted by LWC students from the W.B. Yeats adaptation.
All productions will be available free of charge at lindsey.edu/theatre. "This semester is so much different from any previous semester in the program's history. We are entering completely uncharted territory that is profoundly different from any part of the contemporary theatre industry" says Director of Theatre, Robert Brock.
When the COVID-19 pandemic caused the theatre program to delay and ultimately cancel their Spring 2020 season, it was an uncertain and upsetting time for students, staff, faculty, and the community as a whole. In fact, the program as well as its summer theatre, TheatreFest!, canceled seven productions and events altogether, leaving the stage in V.P. Henry Auditorium dormant from March to August of this year.
"I'm excited to get back to working with students, actors, and artists to create theatre again" says Instructor of Theatre, Jeremy Cloyd
Cloyd goes on to say, "this has been a trying time for everyone. I think what is important now is to remember that art helps us to heal, it inspires us, and it soothes the weary soul. What we are trying to do by creating digital theatre is bring these stories to life in a way that is wide reaching. We will be able to reach people through this online content who may have never been able to attend a production on the A.P. White campus."
Whatever theatre looks like after this pandemic, rest assured that the LWC Theatre program is doing everything possible to continue to create opportunities for students to learn about and create theatre as well as opportunities for the LWC Family to experience it.
