Gualala Arts Center
Admission $10, students free
Gualala Arts will host a pair of actors from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival on Thursday, November 10, at 7:00 p.m. and the event is open to the community. Tickets are $10.00 for adults, but the admission is free for students.
The dynamic actors, William Langan and David Thompson, will perform excerpts from Shakespeare, as well as classic and contemporary literature.
They will be conducting interactive workshops and programs for school students during the day. The School Visit Program is part of the Festival's commitment to bring theatre to young people and young people to the theatre. After the Festival closed in its 2004 season, 6 teams of actors visited 124 schools and organizations, reaching over 67,000 students in four states.
For many students, these performances are their first experience with live theatre. One teacher wrote, "The Oregon Shakespeare Festival's visit is a window for my students! It helps expose them to different worlds, ways of thinking, and to professional theatre."
The 2005 School Visit program is funded in part by a generous grant from the Bank of America, the Helen Clay Frick Foundation, Oregon Cultural Trust, and the Bowmer Society.
The Gualala Arts Center is located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA. Please call (707) 884-1138 for more information.
