A Play About Community-Police Relations
coming September 2014 to Ithaca, NY
Civic Ensemble and a group of community members (hopefully including you) will work together to create a play from the stories, interviews, and other primary source material. Those same community members will perform the play in 2014 in Ithaca, NY.
You don't have to tell stories to perform in the play, but everyone who tells stories is welcome to participate as an actor if they wish. There is no experience necessary. The process of creating and performing the play brings people together to reach a common goal. It's hard work, it's fun, and it helps the community talk about a tough topic. Consider taking a risk and jumping in!
There are many ways to get involved besides performing.
You can help with the development of the script, work on props, set, costumes, or marketing. Do you have experience stage managing? Let us know. We welcome all ages and levels of ability.
For More Info
Everyone is welcome to participate in the playmaking process and performances, but it is not required; you do not have to perform in the play to take part in sharing your opinions and stories. Stories will only be used in the play with permission of the participant. NO PRIOR THEATRE EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. Come for the experience or come for the topic. We welcome you to participate!
