Description: Announcing the creation of the Would Be Players Jr.!
I am very excited to announce the Spring 2015 Program as we will be introducing new concepts of theater to our older, more experienced actors and offering a program to address the specific needs of beginning younger actors!
Due to the current size of the class as well as the growing experience of some of our older actors, we will be splitting it into smaller groups primarily based on age.
The Would Be Players Sr. class will meet Monday and Tuesday for ages 12 to 18.
The Would Be Players Jr. class will meet on Wednesday and Thursday for ages 6 through 11.
(Note that these age classifications are estimates inasmuch as some children maybe more experienced and/or mature than others. For example, we may place an 11 year old in the advanced group and/or a 12 year old in the beginners group.)
Classes for the 12 - 18 years old will begin on Monday, March 2, 2015. This program will be for the more advanced actors and will introduce new acting techniques and material.
Classes for the 6 - 11 years old will begin on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. This program will be for new and young actors.
Children new to the program will be evaluated the first week and, based upon experience and level of maturity, may be moved from one group to the other. Before a child is moved, we will discuss it with you, the parents. The child will not be told until the move is discussed and agreed upon.
Both the Would Be Players Sr. Program and the Would Be Players Jr. Program Each program lasts for 6-8 weeks and finishes with a production at the Playhouse that is opened to the public. This program incorporates the basics of theater acting, vocal training, body language, stage presence, blocking, etc. There will be some lecturing but most of the sessions would involve acting games giving the actors the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned. Scripts will be distributed throughout the training. There will be a final script to be used in a performance for the final week of classes.
Why theater for children?
Theater, unlike anything else, can really help a child to mature.
1. Theater is a "team-sport". Everyone has to do his or her part in order to make a production work.
2. It can create enormous pressure. Getting up on stage and performing is notoriously nerve-wracking. It can help pull a shy child out of his/her shell.
3. It teaches discipline. You have to learn your lines or look foolish on stage.
4. Each play has a message that a child can learn from.
5. Theater takes a child away from the television, computer or mall and forces them to socialize with his/her peers.
6. You can develop wonderful relationships between kids of all ages. As I've seen time and time again, the older actors love helping the younger actors.
Most importantly, the things that a student learns in acting class will stay with him/her their entire life. Math may be forgotten. History may be forgotten, but each student will never lose the ability to stand up in front of a group of people and present themselves favorably. Theater is one "stage" that you want your child to go through!

Description: Can a middle-aged, middle-class woman survive, when she suddenly has to make beds all day in a hotel and live on $7 an hour? Maybe. But one $7-an-hour job won't pay the rent: she'll have to do back-to-back shifts, as a chambermaid and a waitress. This isn't the first surprise for acclaimed author Barbara, who set out to research low-wage life firsthand, confident she was prepared for the worst. Barbara Ehrenreich's best-seller about her odyssey is vivid and witty, yet always deeply sobering. Joan Holden's stage adaptation is a focused comic epic shadowed with tragedy. Barbara is prepared for hard work but not, at 55, for double shifts and nonstop aches and pains; for having to share tiny rooms, live on fast food because she has no place to cook, beg from food pantries, gulp handfuls of Ibuprofen because she can't afford a doctor; for failing, after all that, to make ends meet; or for constantly having to swallow humiliation. The worst, she learns, is not what happens to the back or the knees: it's the damage to the heart. The bright glimpses of Barbara's co-workers that enliven the book become indelible portraits: Gail, the star waitress pushing fifty who can no longer outrun her troubles; Carlie, the hotel maid whose rage has burned down to disgust; Pete, the nursing home cook who retreats into fantasy; Holly, terrified her pregnancy will end her job as Team Leader at Magic Maids, and with it her 50-cent raise. These characters wage their life struggles with a gallantry that humbles Barbara, and the audience. The play shows us the life a third of working Americans now lead, and makes us angry that anyone should have to live it. "undeniably provocativeOne can't see this stage version without questioning an economy in which poor people subsidize the lifestyle of the middle and upper classes." Variety. "A rare example of theater that tries to open people's eyes to the way life is lived in the real worldand maybe even rouse them to action." Time Magazine.

Visitors to the festival, a tradition now in its 29th year, should start at the MusselFest Headquarters, located at the Coupeville Recreation Hall in the heart of historic downtown Coupeville. Here they can purchase tickets to the festival favorite Mussel Chowder Tasting Competition, which pits local restaurants against each other for the coveted Mussel Chowder prize. The competition sells out quickly, so organizers recommend that visitors buy their tickets before 1:00pm.
MusselFest Headquarters is also the center for mussel cooking demonstrations, the daily mussel eating competition, and tickets for the mussel farm boat tour. This year, visitors will cruise to the Penn Cove Shellfish mussel farm aboard the Glacier Spirit. Families visiting Coupeville will enjoy creative activities the kids will love. The merchants of Coupeville’s historic waterfront downtown will offer extended hours for shopping.
No festival experience is complete without a stop by the Musselfest beer and wine gardens. The Waterfront Wine & Beer Garden provides locally crafted brews from Flyers Brewery, with nearby family outdoor dining.

Seattle Flamenco dancer and educator, Savannah Fuentes returns to LangleyTheater Events
Description: Seattle Flamenco dancer and educator, Savannah Fuentes returns to Langley with Spanish guitarist Jose Vega and international vocalist Curio Cueto. Fuentes and company will perform as part of the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts Family Series at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 20 on the main stage.
This is a rare chance for the whole family to enjoy an ancient and highly-entertaining art form. Authentic Flamenco traces its roots from the province of Andalusia, Spain in the 16th century, but is also influenced by gypsy, Sephardic, Roman, Islamic and Arabic traditions. Such a combination of cultures makes Flamenco dancing unique and complex. It’s a rare treat to see this exotic combination of singing, dancing and classical guitar, punctuated by rhythmic hand-claps and other percussions that are the hallmarks of Flamenco.
