Season Poster

GVSU Theatre Trip 2014

Stratford

Twenty two Theatre students accompanied by Jim Bell and Karen Libman attended the production of The Beaux’ Stratagem at the Stratford Festival. This fall, professor Bell is teaching a class on Restoration Comedy Dramaturgy that coincides with the upcoming production of Restoration Comedy in April. Restoration Comedy is an adaptation of two Restoration period comedies-Loves Last Shift and The Relapse . The Dramaturgy class is an intensive study of the nature of Restoration period comedies including reading numerous examples. But in theatre seeing is always believing. As such, the opportunity to see a Restoration comedy performed by a professional company was too good to pass up. Half of the students who attended were from Bell’s Dramaturgy class and read the play in preparation. The production was outstanding and very much enjoyed by all. The Grand Valley Theatre students were an exemplary and enthusiastic audience. The stars aligned in that the production closed on October 11 with a Saturday matinee. This allowed the group to see the production after the close of the Shakespeare Festival that would have conflicted for many of the students, and allowed the group to travel to see the production and return in one day, saving on costs.
