On Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5, 2012, Tucson will witness the birth of a new theatre company. The Tucson Alliance of Dramatic Artists will present its premiere through two evenings of play readings.
Friday evening, May 4, you will enjoy three delightful one-act plays:
Two Saturdays in June by Sydney Flynn;
Waiting by Susan Arnold and
UROK by Jim Ambrosek.
Two Saturdays in June–On a trip back to her hometown, a teacher confronts both her mother and the demons that have haunted her since childhood.
Waiting — A hospital waiting room; a bowler, a nurse, a woman, her daughter.
UROK — A wine tasting; a sister, two brothers, a wine connoisseur and his date. What could happen?
Saturday evening, May 5, you can return to enjoy the reading of the full-length play, Style and Substance, A Love Story…Sort Of! by Stuart Reich, about the problems of dating for middle-aged, single people in a techno-savvy world.
These productions are presented by the Tucson Alliance of Dramatic Artists (TADA!) – a new, non-profit, professional-quality, repertory theatre company, dedicated to producing and presenting work that reaches out to our diverse community as it entertains, enriches, and educates its audience.
TADA! will work to encourage writers, nationally, of all ages to submit their original, never-produced plays. We will be producing events of social, human and political relevance. In addition to traditional theatre stages, TADA will be looking for new, exciting and unusual locations to present the live theatre experience.
ART Gallery is one of the most eclectic collections of beautiful fine art pieces, sculptures, relics, antiques, paintings, jewelry, and more, situated in a uniquely designed location that has become a Tucson landmark. These are evenings for the both the performing and the visual arts.
This inaugural event begins with a reception both evenings from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. followed by the performances at ART Gallery, 1122 N. Stone Ave, NE corner of Stone/Speedway, in Tucson, AZ. Refreshments will be served. Free admission. However, donations will be accepted and appreciated, with profits going toward underwriting this new venture.
So come early, enjoy art before, at intermission, and after the show.
