About the show:

LAST SUMMER AT BLUEFISH COVE is the story of Eva, a dissatisfied straight woman who leaves her husband to spend some quiet time by herself and unwittingly wanders into the midst of a group of seven lesbians at the beginning of their annual beachside vacation. She ultimately falls in love with Lil who, unknown to her, is dying of cancer. The show celebrates the friendship and the love shared by this group of women. It looks at the fears of being outed, the difficulties of being gay and how it can affect relationships with family, children, and parents and its affect on careers. Now nearly 35 years old, this groundbreaking script tells the story of a particular segment of the LGBTQ community found in “everyday America” that had never before been told with such respect. Chambers’ comedic dialogue, her sensitivity to human nature and the tender treatment of her characters truly show the universality of these women’s journeys, whether straight or gay.

Jane Chambers’ writing for Search for Tomorrow won her a Writers Guild of America Award in 1973. She is the award-winning author of Christ in a Treehouse, Tales of the Revolution and Other American Fables, Random Violence, A Late Snow (produced at Playwrights Horizons in 1974 and one of the earliest plays to portray lesbian characters in a positive light), Last Summer at Bluefish Cove, My Blue Heaven and The Quintessential Image.

Cambrian Description:
The “Cambrian Explosion” was a massive event in Earth’s evolutionary history, wherein life diversified dramatically and split into most of the phyla we see in the present day. Cambrian trace fossils act as the ghost of life’s activity over 500 million years ago. Cambrian,a sound and movement based performance, explores themes of life, evolution, and physical form. The performers isolate forms of their body and subsume materials in the space to alter their physicality and their environment. Set in a minimal achromatic setting; light, sound, and movement aim to capture the evolution from organic material to sentient life. The show explores the interdependence of life and solid earth while inviting audiences to think about the current state of humanity in the Anthropocene. Will we innovate and ensure a future for our species or are we destined become a fossilized curiosity like life in the Cambrian?

First Stage Theater Academy’s Classical Company Class Presents:
The Merchant of Venice
By William Shakespeare

Jim Fletcher, Director
Ro Spice-Kopischke, Assistant Director

What must one risk for love? For fortune? For friendship? And what is the cost of risking such things? Set in the highly polarized world of sixteenth century Venice, Shakespeare gives us no easy answers. How does one find justice in such a world where everyone is culpable? The questions Shakespeare posed four hundred years ago, are sadly ones we still face today.

Performance Dates:

Friday, August 12 at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 13 at 7:00 p.m.

Admission is free! Come out to support the hard work of these incredible young performers!

Voices Found Repertory Presents

 

Romeo & Juliet

A Tragedy by William Shakespeare

Directed by Jake Russell Thompson

 

10th Street Theatre, Milwaukee WI

August 10 ­ 13 at 7:30pm, 13 ­ 14 at 2:00pm

(Doors open 30 minutes before curtain)

$12 general admission voicesfoundrep.com

 

Romeo Montague crashes Juliet Capulet’s party, and in one moment they find what most people believe they’ll never had in their lifetime. Less than a hundred hours later, there’s been a

wedding, a banishment, a sex scene, some domestic abuse, and a horrible miscommunication –

and five people are dead. What the hell went wrong? Between an iconic balcony and a double suicide, Voices Found Rep’s debut production is a fresh and stylish take on Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, set in an abstract post­punk world, and aims to portray the heart and humanity

of a timeless story.

 

Tickets at voicesfoundrj.brownpapertickets.com.

 

This production features flashing lights, and violence against men and women.

 

 

Voices Found Repertory is the product of many creative minds. Through experimentation, flexibility, and integrity, we hope to produce passionate, empathetic, and imaginative stagings of Shakespeare’s work, alongside original, never­before­seen plays.

 

Our mission is to create theatre that unifies its audience; to develop a common artistic vocabulary and allow artists to work, learn, and play together; to establish and uphold an

inclusive safe space for exploration, communication, and empathy. We want to give you a place where you can do what you love, what you’re interested in, what you’re curious about. Our interest is in how art resonates with you, and how you can communicate yourself through it.
