Current Season

Fall 2016 Production Season


by Charlotte Delbo (translated by Cynthia Haft)
Directed by Rebecca Marzalek-Kelly

    Based upon the true story of Charlotte Delbo, a member of the French Resistance, Who Will Carry The Word depicts the lives of twenty-three French women living in the barracks at Auschwitz. They find solidarity while fighting to keep the strongest of them alive so that someone can share their stories with the world. An eloquent testament to the human spirit, Who Will Carry The Word, is a sobering and moving tribute to the resilience of people placed in horrific circumstances, and what remains is the simple gift of hope. Guest directed by Brooklyn-based theater artist, choreographer, and Skidmore College alum, Rebecca Marzalek-Kelly.

    DATES: October 21 – 23 and 27 – 30
    All shows at 8:00pm, except Sunday matinees at 2:00pm

TICKET PRICES:  $12 General Admission / $8 Students & Seniors

A Multilingual Premiere

    How do we respond to global crises of displaced people and environmental threats on our Facebook news feed? What does it mean to cross digital, linguistic and physical borders? This multilingual premiere engages the audience on a metatheatrical journey across waters, time and geographies of space using installations of song, poetry, film and dance. Directed by Eunice Ferreira, Skidmore Theater Faculty.

    “This is a story of us, here, now, and also of who we were once. It is a story of those that cross rivers and seas and those that wait for them, of a lover who searches for one lost years ago, and of someone called Penelope, who may be waiting for someone called Odysseus.” – Caridad Svich, Obie-winning playwright

    DATES: November 30 – December 6
    All shows at 8:00pm, except Sunday matinee at 2:00pm

TICKET PRICES:  $12 General Admission / $8 Students & Seniors

Fall 2016 Lab Season

Our Studio Labs, Directors Labs, and New Works Labs provide students with the opportunity to explore their interests in acting, design, and directing. Our Playwrights Labs provide opportunities for writers to present multiple staged readings of their developing works. Playwrights are paired with directing students and each reading is followed by a opportunity for audience members to comment on the work. Labs are generally in Studio A on the second floor of the JKB Theater at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted.
