BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The Morgan Arts Council will launch a yearlong program of theater-arts classes with a party Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Ice House.
"We're encouraging anyone interested in any part of local theater to come hear about the classes, and meet the teachers and potential students," Mary Hott, executive director of the MAC, said in a press release. "We're hoping to recruit new people, as well as inspire those who have worked with the Ice House Theater to recommit. This is about taking the next step."
More than 50 individual classes, two staged readings of locally written plays and the opportunity to be part of a full-scale production next spring are all part of the Building Community Theater project. Under the overall direction of local theater professor Kirsten Trump, the classes include acting and directing, as well as various behind-the-scenes skills, including lighting, sound, sets, costuming and stage management.
