JM students experience theater like they never have before — and may never again! — with an in-depth walk through "Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood," the comedy with music opening this year's theater season at PlayMakers Repertory Company.
It all begins when JM students learn about the production during a discussion with the show's director, Jessie Austrian, a Broadway actress, stage director, NYU instructor, and co-founder and co-artistic director of the world-renowned Fiasco Theater. Jessie, who had lunch with JM students traveling on our New York Arts Adventure last April, will talk about how she approaches the musical creatively and what to look for during the performance.
Then, JM students get a personal backstage tour before taking their seats for the final preview performance at 7:30 p.m. featuring flying arrows, clanging swords and original music by Jack Herrick of North Carolina's Tony Award-winning string band, The Red Clay Ramblers.
The entire evening is free for JM students, including transportation from school, but a limited number of seats are available. Anyone wanting to attend must confirm their attendance with Mrs. Rose Pate no later than Thursday, August 31.
