Condor

Let's make shadow puppets!

Today and tomorrow (October 18th and 19th), from 12-2pm, Dramatic Adventure Theatre and our friends at Abingdon Theatre will be hosting a few tables at the Fashion District Arts Festival (Broadway & 39th).  

We will be making Condor shadow puppets with kids and the young at heart!  This should be a lot of fun for the kids as they will get to cut out, color, and watch their Condors fly!

This is also a great opportunity to learn about DAT’s Nov. 17th Pop Up Playhouse reading of ‘A Girl without Wings’ — an interspecies love story between an Andean Condor and a spunky young girl, a play which was developed on location in the Ecuadorian Andes.  

'A Girl without Wings' will be performed at the Abingdon Theatre as part of their Pop Up Playhouse series, for more information about the reading, visit dramaticadventure.com/tickets

PS - Abingdon Theatre will also have other children’s theatre performances happening today and tomorrow that should also be great fun for the young ones!

The Kennedy Center

From September 6, 2010

On Saturday, September 4th, Dramatic Adventure Theatre teamed up with Baltimore based Run of the Mill Theater for a performance of the new commissioned work, “Prayer of the Condor”.

The performance was in the first block of The Kennedy Center’s Page to Stage event which ran all Labor Day Weekend.  The play received a great response, and we had a great experience collaborating with Run of the Mill.

The Core Company Members have briefly discussed another workshop reading this fall in New York City, but there will be more discussion about this and the rest of DAT’s coming year at the Company Planning Retreat next weekend.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show!

Free Reading at The Kennedy Center

From August 30, 2010

NOTE: We will be in the NORTH, not South, Atrium.

Hello DAT Friends,

We wanted to take a minute to update you about our upcoming performance at The Kennedy Center.

On Saturday, September 4th at 2pm DAT will be collaborating with Run of the Mill Theater in Baltimore to produce a reading of a brand new play by our Resident Playwright, Jason B. Williamson.

This reading is FREE!!!

Some of our company members got together last night for an informal reading, and it was exciting to hear this new play come to life. The play is a new interpretation of an old Andean myth about The Condor. Dramaturg Christen Madrazo has done incredible work researching this Quechuan myth and Jason has done a terrific job retelling the story in a fun and current way.

The play is suitable for all audiences, so fans of all ages are invited to be a part of this adventure!

This is DAT’s first time returning to the Baltimore/DC area since our very first production, Voices from Zimbabwe.

Directed by DAT Resident Director, Kathleen Amshoff, this play is a true collaboration and will include actors from NYC and Baltimore.

If you are in the DC area this Saturday, we would love to share this “Indie Love Story meets Andean Myth” with you.

WHEN?
Run of the Mill Theater & Dramatic Adventure Theatre will present a reading of Jason Williamson’s latest play on Sept. 4th at 2:00pm. (General admission seating opens approximately 30 minutes prior.)

WHERE?
The North Atrium Foyer of the Kennedy Center (2700 F Street, NW Washington, DC 20566).

Hope to see you there!
