Split Knuckle Theatre’s “Endurance”
Friday and Saturday, November 21-22 at 8pm
Salisbury Theatre, UAF Campus
Co-presented with the University of Alaska Theatre and Film Department
This is an exciting month for us. 67 years old and we’re about to offer our first play!
There has been a lot of attention paid to this project and we are offering many additional perks along with it. We’ve recently completed a highly successful series of talks, designed to help you go deeper into the subject of the play. Now the actors have arrived and the residency is about to begin.
I wanted to let you know about some opportunities which are included.
- First, the ASB students will be setting up in the Great Hall prior to the performance. We are looking forward to a gala atmosphere and hope you’ll come early and enjoy some of what they have to offer. It supports their program and makes ours more fun. Look for them to be there by 7:00PM
- On Saturday evening before the play, Dr Michael Castellini, Dean of the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences will be giving a 15 minute pre-theatre talk on why the subject of Shackleton continues to be so compelling. This will be in the theater at 7:15. Those interested should plan on arriving at 7:00. At 7:30 we’ll clear the theater and reopen the house.
- On both nights following the performance, the cast will come out on stage for a talk back. As we did with Parsons Dance, we will allow the theater to clear, then those remaining can stay and ask questions of the cast.
Hear Michael Toomey and Brian Cook on the air with Susie Hackett this Thursday at 1:00 on KUAC
- Please note: The Leadership Workshop is filled and has been wait-listed.
- We have some slots open to community members for our acting workshop with Michael Toomey, Saturday at noon. Call the FCA office at 474-8081 to register.
