LDTC panel discussion on language in theater
Ryan Summerlin May 17, 2012
The Lake Dillon Theatre Company is holding the first of two panel discussions on Language in Theatre (the second is June 3) this Sunday at 4 p.m. Taking place at the LDTC theater house in Dillon, the discussion will be moderated by Josh Blanchard, Director of A Behanding in Spokane, currently running at the LDTC. The cast of the show will be involved as well. Panelists are: John Moore, former Denver Post theatre critic; Christy Montour-Larson, associate producer of Curious Theatre Company; Alex Miller, playwright and manageing editor of Summit Daily News and Christopher Alleman, artistic director of the Lake Dillon Theatre Company. This is an opportunity to discuss themes and language not only in the current show but in contemporary theatre in general. No reservations will be taken for this discussion. It will end before 5 p.m. allowing patrons time to eat before the production at 6 p.m. This is another way the LDTC fulfills its mission of providing educational and informative opportunities to the community.
The summer Lake Dillon Youth Workshops are still accepting applications. Three four-week sessions begin June 8, July 9 and July 23. Participants will perform the Hysterical History of the Trojan War, a historical comedy interpreting the famous epic by Homer, featuring all of our best-known Greek gods and goddesses and famous heroes. Sessions will have between 20 and 40 children each with ages ranging from 7 to 13. Classes meet Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and registration is $375. Some scholarships are still available. The education director for the summer programs is Debbie Swartz. Each group will put on two performances of the show on the final day of the session at the Dillon Amphitheater. Call (970) 513-9386 or visit www.lakedillontheatre.org for more information.
