Will there be a Performance company in 20/21?
In the face of the new world we live in with Covid-19 making theatre sittings a thing of the past for the foreseeable future, we decided to re-invent our Spectacle Blue Performance Company experience.
In the 20/21 season we are taking our beloved theatre production of 'Peregrina's Circus" and turning it into a MOVIE! Audiences will be able to sit back and enjoy the show from the comfort of their own living room! Start the popcorn!
Performers will still learn the valuable lessons that the performance company experience has always taught:
- performance skills
- character and acting skills
- accountability to the team
We are excited to be working in partnership with Gibbs Media on this exciting new project!
Will there be student showcase productions?
We traditionally do 2 student showcases per year. An Informal Student Showcase at the end of the Fall Semester and our larger full-scale 'Under The Big Top' student showcase production in June.
In the 20/21 season, we will continue with this practice in a modified way due to the Covid-19 restrictions on theatre sittings.
The Informal Student Showcase.
This informal showcase will happen via video recording. Our good friends at Gibbs Media will be filming and editing all the Informal showcase performances and we will be making those available for you at no extra charge via our website.
The Under The Big Top student showcase.
This full production showcase complete with lighting, sound, costume and make-up will happen via video recording. Our good friends at Gibbs Media will be filming and editing all the Under The Big Top performances and we will be making those available for you at no extra charge via our website.
