ETB “promises variety and flavor”

<lass="page layoutArea column" title="Page 1">

Talent was hot this weekend at Little Nourse, as hopeful students auditioned for this term’s Experimental Theater Board (ETB) and Student Musical Theater (SMT) shows.

“This term we have three very different shows: an absurdist piece, a drama, and a Shakespeare piece,” said ETB president Caroline Robers (’16). The directors say the uniqueness of this term for Carleton theatre, promises variety and flavor.

ETB is putting on three shows this term: Distract, Visitors, and Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feelin’ So Sad.

Distract, directed by Hannah Gellman (’18), will kick off experimental theatre 6th weekend. Distract is a compilation of scenes from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Hamlet, and King John and concentrates on women in Shakespeare’s work to high- light their experiences of madness.

Barney Norris’s Visitors, directed by Alexandra Pozniak (‘18), will premiere 9th weekend. Visitors is a play about a struggling farmer named Arthur and his wife, Edie, who has dementia. The couple’s lifestyle changes as they hire a caretaker and their son pressures them to sell the family farm in order to put Edie into a nursing home.

Caroline Roberts (’18) and Liv Phillips (’18) will direct Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feelin’ So Sad by Arthur L. Kopit, going up 8th weekend. The play features a wealthy woman who goes on vacation with her awkward son, man-eating plant, piranha, and dead husband preserved in a casket.

If you haven’t yet attended a theatre production at Carleton, this term is the perfect time to start. With three starkly different and incredible shows, this term will be a notable one in Little Nourse.
