almost-all female ‘Hamlet’ to make a social statement
(Newbury Park, Calif. – November 30, 2016) Curtain Call Youth
Theatre will continue its 11th season with the Shakespearean soap-opera about
family drama and dynamics.
Performances of “Hamlet” begin Wednesday, November 30 and
play Thursday, December 1, Saturday, December 3 at 7:30pm and Sunday, December 4
at 5pm. Performances are at Newbury
Park Adventist Auditorium, 180 Academy Drive.
Over two dozen teen thespians (ages 13 to 19) from as far North
as Ventura and as far South as the San Fernando Valley participate in this
Conejo Valley-based non-profit arts program as both actors and tech/design.
“For this almost-all female production of the Shakespearean
classic, the actresses decided to use their art to make a social statement.
We are bringing to light the subject of traditional gender roles and what
is a traditional role”. Says
Producing Artistic Director, Jeff Wallach. “Also
the idea of the effects of pronouns in relation to gender will be brought to
light. We hope this production will
create conversation about these two issues”.
