This year has been a year of great growth for theatre KAPOW. We are so proud to have more shows, more partnerships, and more opportunities to share the community created through theatre.
But we can do even more in the coming year:
- Reaching New Audiences: This fall, we remounted our award-winning production of Macbeth at Seacoast Repertory Theatre in Portsmouth, and at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord. We are performed for more than 450 high school students.
- Deepening Relationships: We’ll continue to deepen relationships with non-traditional theatre audiences. We are pleased to bring the ARTiculate Playreading Series back to the Currier Museum of Art. We will also be partnering with the Currier to lead workshops for educators in conjunction with the exhibition of First Folio: The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare this spring.
- Exploring Contemporary Stories: This spring we’ll be producing our first one-woman show when we present George Brant’s timely play Grounded. The show, which tells the story of an Air Force pilot who transitions to drone operation after an unexpected pregnancy, will be performed for the general public before being presented to local JROTC students.
- Creating New Work through International Exchange: Building off of last year’s successful production of Uma Vida Imaginaria, this season we’ll collaborate with the Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre and renowned PEI fiddler Cynthia MacLeod on a new piece about parallel storylines of the 1917 explosion in Halifax harbor and the Canadian response to the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001.
- Remaining Committed to Quality: Training remains at the foundation of the work we create, and our monthly open training sessions will be supplemented by workshops with visiting artists.
