PLAYERS WORKSHOP GOES ONLINE
Because Players Workshop has been forced to close their physical plant due to Covid-19, they will be starting a series of online skits and presentations on Facebook and YouTube.
Starting off the series will be a PW Young Actors Production of a comedic rendering called Mother Goose Interrupted: This Little Piggy, which will open on Players Workshop’s Facebook Page on Sept. 24.
Presented with special permission of author T.P. Jagger, this is one of eight skits giving a new “take” on classic Mother Goose stories. In this playlet, the traditional story of This Little Piggy takes a twist as characters in this Mother Goose story go toe-to-toe with each other.
The players are Daniele Ebert, Zach Hite, Aaliyah Horn, Annika Franklin, Jason Stivers, and Claire King. Carole Hinkle and Kara Ewinger are co-directors.
Future presentations in 2020 include a musical cabaret (director Kent Lewis), a readers theater style presentation honoring the suffragette movement (director Jayne Gobble), throwback tributes to the comedy of Carol Burnett (director Mary Fox), and a Christmas show (director Kara Ewinger).
Theater lovers are urged to check out these PW offerings, which will continue into 2021, until the workshop can once again open its doors to live theater.
