    With generous support from the Kaplan Foundation, Cotuit Center for the Arts announces a new collaboration designed to workshop four original plays by four local playwrights over the course of one year.  Theater partners include Cotuit Center for the Arts, Harwich Junior Theatre, Provincetown Theater, and Woods Hole Theatre Company.

     

    Each work will be presented in staged readings four times, once each season over the course of a year, in four venues from the upper Cape to the lower Cape, reaching four different audiences.  The partners each invited a local playwright and asked that they pen a new full length play for up to six actors. Readings will take place in the four theaters simultaneously, the first with each playwright in the “home” of their presenter, then rotating between the four venues.  Dates of the performances are scheduled for May 5, August 4, November 3, 2014; and February 2, 2015 (Dates subject to change).  A festival of all four plays will be scheduled at the completion of the cycle.

     

    Featured playwrights are Bronwen Prosser (Cotuit Center for the Arts), Susan Kosoff (Harwich Junior Theatre),  Candace Perry (Provincetown Theater) and Joe Richards (Woods Hole Theatre Company).

  • Drawing People - Parts to Whole Summer 2015

    Drawing People - Parts to Whole  with Jackie Reeves

    Each week we will focus on different parts of the human form; hands, feet and portrait. Through drawing from still life and plaster casts, we will develop skills in seeing perspective, proportion and creating volume with shading. There will be a live clothed model for the last session with instruction on the use of drawing tools and strategies for drawing from life. Beginners are welcome as well as seasoned drawers who can take advantage of focused drawing time. A second figure class in June will focus on faces. Take either or both sessions for an in-depth study in drawing.

    Turn your great idea into a great picture book! In six weeks you’ll learn about plot, character, pacing, and other important elements in creating a good story. You’ll examine books to discover what makes them successful and join your classmates in writing your own stories, learning to make them stronger via supportive critique. The class will include lectures, workshops, and group work.

    What's Your Story, Morning Glory? with Christine Rathbun

    Hey, busy women! Have you always wanted to write but worry that your story's not that interesting? Boring, even? Do you collect beautiful journals but never write in them? Join our class and discover a world of story in your day to day. Led by poet/playwright/loudmouth, Christine Rathbun Ernst, each class is structured around simple and fun writing exercises, experience mining, exploration of the personal narrative, and optional weekly take-home assignments. No judgment, no critique, no grammar police -- just lots of writing, also sharing through reading aloud if you choose. And it's early on a Saturday so your weekend doesn't get screwed up. C'mon, Morning Glory -- grab your coffee, paper, and pen --  what's your story? For more info, contact Christine at christineernstwriter@gmail.com
