Mainstage Submission – Fall 2017

Mainstage Submission – Fall 2017

Hello, Players!

The 6th annual Festival Dionysia is now wrapped and a success! Now it’s time for us to look ahead and plan for the next year.

The mainstage production of the Player’s Club is open for all directors wanting to direct any play.

Please fill out the attached UBCPC Mainstage Proposal and email it to productions@ubcplayersclub.com by April 8th.

Generally the plays should be 45 ~ 90 minutes long, and if it is relatively short it may be part of a double bill.

We’re waiting for all the talented directors out there!

Last Friday’s Bar Night: A Blast! (Look out for future ones!)

We’re all about theatre, but social events are also happening.

They are such good opportunities to meet new people who share the same interests with you. Like last week’s bar night, which was filled with booze, snacks and fun activities.

There are more social events like this in the planning process, so come out, have fun, and hang out with us!

MTT Workshop – February 27th

MTT Workshop – February 27th

Since we were showered with positive feedbacks about the Musical Theatre workshop last term,

The Players Club proudly presents another to start things off after Reading Week!

All ages and experiences are welcome, it will be held like the previous one.  The first half of the workshop dedicated to learning a number and the second half for learning the choreography.

At the end, we’ll put it together to perform for… ourselves. (Watch out for the cameras!)

Starting at 6 P.M, at Neville Scarfe 1003.

Hope to see you all there!

Play Reading on the 14th: COPPER THUNDERBIRD by Marie Clements

Play Reading on the 14th: COPPER THUNDERBIRD by Marie Clements

This week, the UBC Players Club is hosting a play reading of Marie Clements’s spellbinding drama  Copper Thunderbird from 3-6pm on Friday, in NEST 2521.

Copper Thunderbird acts out the life, times, and struggles of Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau, a Grand Shaman hailed as the Father of Contemporary Native Art and “Picasso of the North.” These accolades, however, do not come without cost. Clements interweaves Morrisseau’s everyday struggles to become accepted and retain his identity in a Western-dominated art world with his tumultuous spiritual journey to the heart of his cultural traditions.

Greetings, players!

Come join us on October 27th for a presentation of Joan MacLeod’s The Shape of a Girl, directed by Elana Mabrito and starring Anni Ramsay, two key members of the UBC Players Club.

The show will be followed by a brief talkback where we discuss the issues that arise in the text. We are interested in using the power of theatre and performance as a way to facilitate change. We hope that you’ll join us for an evening of theatre and conversation!
