    SISTERS WYRD

     Sisters Wyrd

    SISTERS WYRD is a workshop production which runs November 21st, 22nd, and 23rd 

    We’ll be revisiting/revising the Shakespeare Summer Nights’ challenging and provocative version of Shakespeare’s MACBETH, and you are invited to witness an open rehearsal on November 21st or 22nd at 8pm at the Schuster Theatre. Then, utilizing audience feedback and using a devised approach to the creation of the performance (as we did with the highly successful and internationally lauded APE/ESSENCE), we will work the show and present changes on November 23rd at 8pm. We are exploring the themes of power, politics, fate, nature, and gender to bridge this hundreds year old play with today.  This production will continue to evolve throughout the year and our students will be bringing this original production to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival- the largest arts festival in the world- this summer.  

    Audiences are invited to attend any of our rehearsal performances and all workshop productions are free of cost. There will be no reservations; all seating open.

    We’ll reprise our wonderful Christmas dinner theatre, returning to the court of Cheltham Hall, and reuniting Lord Harold, Lady Rose, Master Harry, Mistress Mary, Sloops, Beatrice, Rodney Jangles, and your favorite medieval German dominatrix, Wilma Hoffstadt, for another holiday reunion!

    Mary is preparing her audition for Lord Gannon’s Academy of Dramatic Arts, and the family and friends are all there to help build up her resume. Rodney has penned “Gabriel’s Message: An Angel’s Work is Never Done,” about the challenges that the archangel faced in helping Mary and Joseph to understand the “sudden news” and embrace the “reason for the season.”

    This dinner theatre experience includes a choice of Holiday roast (beef) or vegetarian entrée with a mixed vegetable medley and potatoes.  Dinner comes with salad and rolls as well as a choice of water, coffee, tea, mulled cider or mulled wine, for our 21 and over guests.  For dessert, we have a delicious fruit trifle.  Tickets are $29 and must be paid in-full within two days of us confirming your reservation; we accept cash, check, card, or GU gold.  Reservations will be accepted until noon on December 3rd. All reservations should go through Alaina Manchester at manchest003@gannon.edu.

    Song, sup, and legal libation are the key elements in this immersive theatre experience, written by Rev. Shawn Clerkin, and is sure to put you in the holiday mood!
