Meet the professor.

Meet the Professor is an education enrichment program for the interested townspeople of Idyllwild. It takes place on Wednesdays, during the dinner hour, consisting of social time, a lecture or program of some sort, and then, of course, dinner with the professor. Several of the events scheduled for this year feature the faculty of Idyllwild Arts. Last night it was Howard Shangraw, giving a talk on the redemptive power of the theatre. To do this he invited some of our theatre students who are busy rehearsing their first play of the year. “Our Country’s Good” by Timberlake Wertenbaker, is all about the redemptive power of theatre. It’s about a group of English convicts sent to an Australian penal colony who put on a play. I won’t give away any more.

It’s such a testament to the skill of our young actors that they can enter a room, with no costumes or props, and use only voice and physical expression to take us into another world. I don’t have a clue how they do that. Time to sit in on an acting class.

“Our Country’s Good,” October 31 and November 1 at 7:30 pm, and November 2 at 2 pm. IAF Theatre. See you there.
