Theater Bits - September 24, 2006

There's a few things that are of interest, but not big enough for a whole post. So here they are as Theater Bits.

Vinny Alexander - New generation has different view of theater
"The school where I teach has an alternative English program for 10th-graders interested in theater and art.

Against a backdrop of theatrical literature and other works from the Modern Period, students critically examine plays, novels and poems for craftsmanship and meaning. We use a number of methods of assessment, including essay writing, design projects and performance. It is a rigorous course of study, and students achieve at extremely high levels."

The Improv Wiki
"Welcome to the improv wiki--the wiki all about improvisational comedy and improvisational theater.

We're a haphazard collection of people's ideas, observations, and prejudices about improv. You are invited to extend, improve, edit, monkey with, change, tweak, radically revise, and especially add to this wiki. Please give us your improv experience, ideas, and imagination whenever you feel the inspiration."

Sundance Theatre Lab Accepting Project Applications for Summer 2007
"The Sundance Institute Theatre Program is accepting applications for the 2007 Sundance Institute Theatre Laboratory, the respected program that offers theatre makers a space and a community to develop their work outside of commercial pressures.

The Sundance Institute Theatre Laboratory is a three-week workshop which offers playwrights, directors, choreographers, composers, solo performers and ensembles, support to develop new plays and musicals or to explore new approaches to existing scripts."

Off-Off Broadway History and Walking Tours
"The Off Off Broadway company Peculiar Works Project is marking the work of those early downtown theatrical pioneers with "Off Stage: The West Village Fragments," a walking tour, performance and history lesson that will meander through Greenwich Village during the next few weekends, stopping at key locations."
