    Please join Acting for a Change director Linda Richmond and members of the senior improvisational drama group as we warm up, salon-style, for Saturday’s performance of “Love Is In the Air.”

    In putting together the show, Linda was inspired by the music and lyrics of Stephen Sondheim and works of William Shakespeare.  So, she invited musical director Stephen Borsuk to set the show to music.  Stephen will be here on Friday night to run through the music with the cast and we would be delighted if you would join us for the rehearsal and next day’s performance.  Bring your voice (bring sheet music, too, if there’s a special song you’d like to sing – Sondheim preferred, but any Broadway tune will do). 

    Pros and amateurs are welcome!  Shakespeare monologues related to the show will be available for impromptu readings and our delight.

    "American Native" documents the struggle of the Ramapough Lenape tribe for official recognition.  The film addresses "the forces aligned against them -- old-fashioned bigotry, gaming interests, local property and government interests, federal neglect, and worst of all, the opposition of other Indian peoples."

    Beverly Braxton will lead a short discussion following the film (run time: 1 hr. 23 mins.).

    War and Peace broadly focuses on Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812 and follows three of the most well-known characters in literature: Pierre Bezukhov, the illegitimate son of a count who is fighting for his inheritance and yearning for spiritual fulfillment; Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, who leaves his family behind to fight in the war against Napoleon; and Natasha Rostov, the beautiful young daughter of a nobleman who intrigues both men.

    As Napoleon’s army invades, Tolstoy brilliantly follows characters from diverse backgrounds—peasants and nobility, civilians and soldiers—as they struggle with the problems unique to their era, their history, and their culture. And as the novel progresses, these characters transcend their specificity, becoming some of the most moving—and human—figures in world literature.

    Books are available for checkout; new members welcome.
