St. Gregory’s Announces 2013-14 Performing Arts Schedule
St. Gregory’s has announced its 2013-2014 theatre and dance performance schedule. The fine arts season will debut on October 3 with a senior student production of Two Rooms, a controversial and emotionally-charged play about an American hostage who is being held by terrorists.
You will be transported to the City of Lights Oct. 25-26 when the Dance Department presents An Evening in Paris. The Parisian-themed show will feature jazz, tap and aerial performances, as well as a reconstruction of a French court dance.
The Theatre Department will return to the stage Dec. 12-15 with a performance of The Odd Couple, the classic comedy about mismatched roommates Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar. Then, the fall season will wrap up on December 15 with the annual Christmas Choral performance of Festival of Lessons and Carols, a program of scripture readings and choral music for Advent and Christmas.
On Feb. 15-16, 2014, St. Gregory’s will present The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, a Monty Python-esque and family-friendly retelling of the classic children’s story. In this version, a swashbuckling and ego-centric Robin Hood swaggers through his quest to aid the needy.
The department’s spring dance performance, The Beat of the Drum, will be presented March 7-8, 2014. The Beat of the Drum celebrates the relationship between drums and dancing and will feature choreography in a variety of styles married with a pulsing beat.
The last spring performance of the Theatre Department will take place May 1-4, 2014, with a presentation of The Dining Room, a collection of interrelated scenes that create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species—the upper-middle-class WASP.
Finally, the SGU Performing Arts season will conclude May 11, 2014, with the annual performance of the Sacred Choral Concert, a selection of choral pieces based on sacred themes.
