Transcript of Southern Oregon University Department of Theatre Arts 08 Playbill - for web.pdf¢  Southern...

  • Southern Oregon University Department of Theatre Arts Spring 2008 Playbill

    By Janusz Glowacki Translated by Jadwiga Kosicka

    Center Square Theatre May 15–25, 2008

    Based on the Myths of Ovid Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman

    Center Stage Theatre May 22–June 1, 2008

    Designated the Center for Excellence in the Fine and

    Performing Arts by the Oregon University System

  • “Creating Space at the Center – Where We Stand”

    Welcome to another example of the excellent quality of our work.

    We are pleased to share two award- winning plays with you this spring. Mary Zimmerman’s interpretation of Ovid’s myths is a challenging piece to realize. Faculty director Dale Luciano, working with faculty scenic designer Sean O’Skea and

    our students, has created the opportunity for you to visit the realm of grand imagination. Guest director Terri McMahon takes us on a journey to Janusz Glowacki’s sly vision of New York City from the eyes of Polish emigrants in Hunting Cockroaches.

    SOU Theatre Arts has continued to grow and is currently the largest exclusively undergraduate theatre arts program in the western United States. The quality of the program attracts students from an expanding radius to our campus. We need more space to deliver the quality of program we are capable of delivering. The additional space will facilitate the department’s ability to supply rehearsal and lab spaces to support the scope and potential growth of our students and faculty.

    At this point we are at the beginning of a fundraising process that will need to show support from our patrons, our alumni and friends to stimulate support from private and public funding sources. We are pleased to be able to note that the Theatre Arts building expansion has been selected as the number one priority for capital construction projects by SOU in its requests for state funding support.

    Enclosed in the playbill you will find a contribution form. I hope you will consider being a part of our fundraising efforts at the earliest stages. Your support will help us realize our dream for our students and our community. Please contact me if you would like to be involved in exploring the means to raise the funds that will help us to realize our potential as one of the most dynamic and creative undergraduate theatre programs in the country.

    Thank you for your patronage, Chris Sackett
