at in the Hat

Sally and her brother are bored on a rainy day, when the Cat in the Hat appears with tricks and things and games to play. Their day is filled with mischief and imagination despite protests from their fish. That is, until their mom returns home. Join us for Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s story that illustrates boredom is truly just a state of mind.

he People's Perception:
A Dramaturgical Interactive Experience
The Theatre School at DePaul University - The Grappler's Lab

Come see The Grappler's first journey into putting on productions, instead of just talking about them. As The Theatre School's dramaturgy blog, we are experimenting with a brand new process where we put dramaturgy at the forefront. Eat pizza, drink soda, and immerse yourself within this dramaturgical production. 

The People's Perception

Two candidates in the same party are running for governor. Their party is hosting a non-partisan funding event, and the audience is cast as reporters. In attendance are also the support systems of each of the candidates, some acting less appropriately than others. Several political scandals on both sides are gradually revealed. Later, the audience members will become voters, debate over which candidate should be elected governor, and vote for their chosen candidate. What do you value in a leader?

nitting Adventures

Some people like fidget spinners or doodling in the margins of their paper. I find that the best way to keep myself focused on what is going on in front of me is to knit. This means that I knit a lot! One of my favorite places to knit is in the rehearsal room, as it allows me to stay incredibly focused during the time that the director is blocking or other tasks of that nature, where I can unobtrusively have my needles going in the background (Bamboo needles are the best if you want to remain a silent knitter).

My current knitting project is a red and white striped ribbed scarf. I'm using some lovely acrylic Bulky Weight yarn from Knit Picks. This scarf is going to the actor who won my dramaturgical obstacle course that I planned for my presentation on the first rehearsal.
