Join us for this one day survey intensive where performers will get the opportunity to work through voice and movement exercises from a variety of schools of thought (including but not limited to Meisner and Method) in the morning and then move on to fast-paced scene and partner work in the afternoon.

This is a great opportunity for seasoned vets to return to their roots and strengthen their chops and for new performers to learn some of the technique and dip their toe into the greater world of acting.

Cost: $35

Pirates, hijinks ensue as Hubcity Theatre presents Twelfth Night

This summer Victoria Park will be transformed into a swashbuckling land of pirate battles and mistaken identities as Hubcity Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

Hubcity is pleased to welcome former artistic director Paul David Power as guest director for his pirates in peril take on the show. The play centres on look-alike siblings Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck, and the confusing love matches and mistaken identities that follow.

“Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s most loved and robust comedies,” says Power. “It’s a really funny story that, in the hands of the great cast we have assembled, has turned out to be a hilarious slapstick show. Audiences are going to love it.”

In another twist, the production sees most of the male actors playing female roles and most of the female actors playing male roles – a nod to the traditional practice of female roles in Shakespeare’s time being played by men.

“I took the timely approach of gender blind casting. Roles were cast based soley on the actor’s ability for a particular part. It’s a modern take on traditional Shakespearean casting as our society becomes more gender fluid,” says Power.

Twelfth Night plays in Victoria Park, Moncton at 6:30 p.m. from July 19 to 21 and 27 to 29. Admission is by donation only. The audience is encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets for seating, there will be no seating provided.
