SACT’s summer of 2020
2020 is forcing all of us to think about the things that are most important to us and how we must learn to do things differently. We chose to postpone our planned production of Roald Dahl’s “Matilda” out of an abundance of caution. Our primary concern has always been for the health and safety of everyone. At the same time, we wanted to find some way to create art together despite the challenges. The result is a never done before virtual production that we are calling “What is Your Superpower?”
– with a nod to Matilda, of course!
Join us for “What is Your Superpower?”!
SACT is seeking community volunteers to participate in a planned virtual production based on the theme “What is Your Superpower?”. Participants of all ages over 8 years old are welcome to register for participation. Register Now!
The project will entail independent, recorded sessions and live workshop activities, led by professional artists. Participants can choose what performing arts activities they wish to engage. Artistic elements may include spoken word, music, and dance; all led by arts professionals. How much you do is up to you. There will also be an opportunity to learn about Augusto Boal and his acting methods, using what is learned to create your own inspiring performance.
The project will take place online over 5 weeks, from June 15 through July 17, with a planned “world premiere” for the community at large on the first weekend of August.
There is no cost to participate but you will need to provide your own internet access and be willing to commit 5-10 hours a week. Advance registration is required (parent/guardian approval as needed) and space may be limited.
