The class combines fun and learning for beginners and advanced actors who want to polish their skills. Michael teaches the real deal - how actors prepare to go onstage, immerse themselves in a role and use non-verbal memories to communicate with their audience. Using theater games, monologues and sometimes hilarious improvs, we gain new insights that enable us to appreciate acting in a different way - from the inside. Do join us!

Imagine the back-up singers in their tight silver dresses swaying to the beat. Imagine how you would again feel hearing a full night of timeless hits like “Endless Love,” “A House is not a Home,” “Dance With My Father” and “If Only for one Night.” There will never be another singer like Luther Vandross, and no voice comes closer to him than Ruben Studdard – the remarkable singer who was hailed as the “next Luther” during his American Idol run, and was nominated for a Grammy singing a Luther song, “Superstar.”

  38. The Company Theatre Group: Steve Martin's Adaptation of Carl Sternheim's "The Underpants"

    April 29, 2018, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Theobald Maske has an unusual problem: his wife's underpants won't stay on. One Sunday morning they fall to her ankles right in the middle of town--a public scandal! Mortified, Theo swears to keep her at home until she can find some less unruly undies. Amid this chaos he's trying to rent a room in their flat. The prospective lodgers have some underlying surprises of their own. In The Underpants, Steve Martin brings his comic genius and sophisticated literary style to Carl Sternheim's classic 1910 farce.

  39. Leonia Artists Gallery Exhibit: “EXIT 70A”, Edward Williams Hall Gallery at FDU

    April 30, 2018, 8:30 AM - 8:30 PM

    The show’s title, “Do Not Enter”, is intended to be a humorous play-on-words of the borough of Leonia's recent enactment of new traffic rules. Leonia, once the site of a renowned, thriving art colony, continues to attract artists in a range of medium. The borough’s lengthy list of prominent visual artists included Charles Chapman and painter and etcher Grant Reynard. The Leonia artists presenting their work in this show perpetuate that rich heritage. This unique exhibition features emerging artists exploring different mediums using diverse styles in abstracts in oil, watercolor, acrylic, and photography. Artists' works presented in the show include Elizabeth DeMarco, Pam Fenwick, Katharina Castiblanco Grammer, Nanda van Ginkel, Marsha Heller, Paul Leibow, James Leynse, Ronald Pancrazi, Vince Priblo and Steve Swank. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, April 22 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Art enthusiasts are invited to come and meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments.
