by Luigi Pirandello

FTT presents Luigi Pirandello’s 1921 masterpiece Six Characters in Search of an Author, newly adapted and directed by ND alumnus Patrick Vassel (’07). In Pirandello’s original script, the title characters commandeer the rehearsal of a play to tell their own stories, calling into question the relationship between art and life. In FTT’s adaptation, the six characters abandon the theatre for the set of a contemporary reality TV show, blurring even further the line between what is real and what is artifice.

Building Musical Instruments from Recycled Material Kennedy Center Workshop Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 4:00 PM

For teachers of Grades K–6 For up to 30 teachers In this 3 hour workshop, K-6 teachers learn how create musical instruments from recycled and reused materials, and then use those instruments to make connections to science and literacy. First, participants build the instruments–such as an oboe from a straw, maracas and drums from tin cans, a guitar from a tube and fishing line–while learning the science behind how they work. Next, the sounds of the instruments become the inspiration for writing musical stories to be performed on the instruments–Common Core curriculum connection. No musical background required!
