#BaltimoreTheatre - Online Edition 3/19
Updated: Mar 29
It's not surprising that Baltimore theatre and arts groups have wasted no time in putting together creative endeavors from self-isolation. We applaud theatre leadership for their quick action and sacrifices to their programming in order to eliminate gatherings - actions that will inevitably save lives. All the following artists, and a plethora more online, are giving their content for free during this time of economic uncertainty. In return, I hope that anyone who is able to please donate to their local theatres so that they can pay their rents, utilities, staff, and artists.
Here's what's online this weekend:
Thursday, 3/19 @ 4pm
Laura Malkus, Vice President of Fells Point Corner Theatre, has over a decade of experience fundraising for arts and education organizations in Baltimore. In her Facebook Live event she will drink some wine and answer your questions!
Tune in on Thursday 3/19 @ 5pm for the live announcement of Season 12’s final show!
Saint Joan @ Pandemic Players
Join us on Saturday, March 21 @ 7:00 PM for the premiere performance of Pandemic Players' production of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan. A little pandemic quarantine can't stop our artistic community. The staged reading of this iconic play will be streamed right to your home.
Produced by Stephen Deininger Directed by Paul Valleau Artwork by Jessica Balick Goodman
Sunday, 3/22 @ 8pm
Shadow puppetry is an ancient form of visual storytelling, and making shadow puppets is much simpler than it seems. Chris will cover essentials such as materials, design, paper cutting, & basic articulation. Specializing in creatures both real and fantastic, he will also talk myths and stories, as well as the thought processes behind creature design.
For lots of creative quarantine fun w/ the community, join Camp Coronavirus run by Hannah Fogler!
Mary-Kate Olsen is in Love By Mallery Avidon Directed by Emily Hall
All potential auditioners to send a video of your contemporary comedic monologue to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than March 27th! Please prepare a one-minute contemporary, comedic monologue of your choice.
Show Description: "Grace is 27, married to her high-school sweetheart, makes good money, and should be way happier than she is. But her husband lost his job and now all he does is play Xbox and smoke pot and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen might be her best friends but maybe they only like her because she's their new target demographic. Or maybe…they're going to save her. A funny play about sad people."
