Black Violin.jpg

Black Violin - January 31, 2020

Virtuoso violinists Will B and Kev Marcus meld highbrow and pop culture through a fusion of classical, jazz, hip-hop, blues and R & B. Joining the classically trained violinists is DJ SPS on turntables; together, the trio smashes musical stereotypes and enthralls lovers of Bach and Beyoncé. Will B. explains, “We encourage kids to think creatively, to take what they love doing and try to come up with something no one has ever done before. And that doesn’t just apply to playing violin or even music, but whatever it is you decide to do. Expand your mind. Once we get their attention with the music, that’s the message we want to deliver.”

Call of the Wild - March 27, 2020

Jack London’s classic tale comes to life on stage. This multi-media adventure mixes performance and storytelling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent offspring of a St. Bernard and Scottish Collie. Kidnapped from his lavish life on a California estate and sent to work as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush of the 1800s, Buck becomes the most famous dog in the northland’s history and discovers the endurance and strength of his wild, primal ancestors as their call courses through his blood.

The production uses 180-degree projection that surrounds the performer and provides scenic, artistic, and historical context to the show through their content. The images feature a unique mix of Philip R. Goodwin’s classical illustrations from the book’s first edition, period photographs, and brand new drawings and animations created by artist Michael Rae.
