Starting the Expedition
"I'm going to respond to all questions with: Yes. No. Rosebud."
- Rae Binstock, author of Expedition
The Design Launch workshop scheduled for Saturday, November 29 is full and registration is now closed. Thank you so much to everyone who registered! Because of the enthusiastic response and high demand for this program, we're already working on scheduling new workshops for January-April. Be on the lookout for FREE future workshops in set, costume, lighting, and sound design.
Last Sunday, we welcomed a fantastic group of actors from Columbia University for a reading of Expedition, our 2015 summer mainstage production. Written by Rae Binstock (Columbia University '15), Expedition deals with two young men struggling to keep their relationship alive after college -- a feat that seems increasingly difficult as career paths change, social pressures mount, and the hundreds of miles between them become the least of their problems on their path to the American Dream. This intimate four-person drama will premiere in July at the Fourth Street Theatre in Manhattan. Alex Tobey (Carnegie Mellon University '15) will direct.
Thank you so much to everyone involved! If you're interested in joining the Expedition team, either as a designer or an actor, please visit our Acceptd site for more information. We'll keep you updated as we workshop Expedition in March.
