PCS: "Somewhere in Time" interpreted 6/13

Portland Center Stage presents an interpreted performance of "Somewhere in Time" on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 7:30 pm. This play is being interpreted by Pam and Edwin Cancel, with Cheryl Witters as an intern. The Sign Coach is Justin Coleman.

Synopsis:

Young playwright Richard Collier has an encounter with a mysterious old woman on the opening night of his earliest success; she entreats him, to his bewilderment, to “come back to me.” Several years later, with his life and career in disarray, he seeks quiet and contemplation and checks in to a storied hotel from his youth. But his stay at the hotel turns into the journey of a lifetime as he unravels history—and time—to discover a powerful but perhaps impossible love.

The 1980 film of Somewhere in Time is a romantic classic, beloved by several generations of movie goers. This world premiere musical invites those who love the story, and those discovering it for the first time, to experience its magic with original music by Doug Katsaros and lyrics by Amanda Yesnowitz, with book by Ken Davenport.

My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard
It’s 1985, the height of the student uprising against the government’s oppressive apartheid system. Passionate teacher Mr. M inspires an unlikely pairing for an English competition: brilliant black student activist Thami and privileged, down to earth white Isabel from a neighboring school. Loyalty and friendship are put to the test when external forces prove stronger than the walls of the Karoo classroom and the students loudly cry: Is this education power or is it oppression?

"The People's Republic of Portland" interpreted performance at PCS

Portland Center Stage presents
an interpreted performance of

"The People's Republic of Portland"
created and performed by Lauren Weedman

DATE: Thursday 5/16/13
TIME:  7:30 pm ; Deaf Theatre Chat begins at 6:30 pm
LOCATION: Gerding Theater at The Armory, 128 NW 11th, Portland, OR 97209
INTERPRETER: Dot Hearn
SIGN COACH: James Rae
TICKETS: Online - click on this link  www.pcs.org/sign , and make sure to enter promo code SIGN


What do baristas, strip clubs, the Pearl, and airport pick ups have in common? Let Lauren Weedman entertain you with the interesting characters and places she's seen in Portland - those things which "Keep Portland Weird." This is comedy with a lot of improv, some video, and more. Did I say this is a comedy? You will laugh. And laugh some more. 

Hurry and buy your tickets. There are a few seats left in the interpreted section only (all other seats are sold out for that night). Follow the directions above to order your tickets online.


"Portland is garnering lots of attention lately—for our leadership in sustainability; for our food scene; for being, well, weird. And now we’ve caught the attention of Lauren Weedman, actor/writer of BUST. In the few months she spent here in the spring of 2011, Lauren’s imagination was captured by all things Portland.  
And so we’ve asked her to write a play. About Portland. How will this former Daily Show faux-spondent treat us? What does Portland look like through Weedman’s unique lens? Are we brave enough to find out? 

This world premiere play was commissioned by the “Innovative Minds” program at Perkins Coie."

Thank you, Justin Coleman, for the video!
