Mike Funt presents
Shipwrecked! An Entertainment

March 20 – 29, 2020

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

International clown performer, teaching artist, and director Mike Funt is happy to announce open auditions for The Clown School East’s premier production. Shipwrecked! tells the grand tale of a famous adventurer who gets lost on the high seas and ends up seeing fantastic things and meeting exotic people. The audience is whisked away from England to the exotic lands of Aboriginal Australia and back again in a story populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. He is aided by two highly talented players, who play all of the people (and animals) he meets along the way. However, all might not be as it seems…Shipwrecked! brings the joy of storytelling alive, and questions whether a story being real or fabricated makes the journey any less treasured.

Ticket prices: $24 General Admission, $22 Seniors/Military, $12 Student/Youth. Buy tickets here.

Arcadia at the Greenbelt Arts Center, May 15-31

Arcadia
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Randy Barth

May 15 – 31, 2020

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia has won awards and accolades ever since its first appearance in 1993. It is set in an English country house, and takes place in both early 1800s and the present day in 2000. There scholars debate the relationships between past and present, order and disorder, and certainty and uncertainty. The (often inaccurate) sleuthing of the modern researchers is contrasted with those who lived there before and provide both comedy and drama. And indeed, there are scandals, both academic and personal, that keeps the plot shifting. It presents a rich combination of farcical elements, clever wordplay, and omens of a dark future.
Ticket prices: $24 General Admission, $22 Seniors/Military, $12 Student/Youth. Buy tickets here.
