Little Shop of Horrors Audition Week

Wow! We had an unbelievable turn-out for auditions on Monday and Tuesday. The level of interest and the amount of talent makes casting the show a difficult task. We had nine youth from other counties arrive for auditions, meaning that their families are willing to make the commitment to drive 30-45 minutes daily to have their children involved in SKyPAC’s educational programming. It is obvious that we are seen by our community and surrounding areas as the best in the region.

Thank you to all participants. The cast list will be posted on Friday, August 1, 2014, at 9:00 p.m., on the front door of the Capitol Arts Center. Please make sure to initial beside your name to indicate that you accept the part.

The fabulous time I had in Monroe County! (the first time) 

First I would like to say sorry for the delay.  Election Day, what craziness.  However, here, as promised, is the continuation of my summer as an intern. This week: Monroe County!  My first contact with Monroe began with getting in contact with Blanche Trimble – she was referred to me as “the Matriarch of Tompkinsville arts.”  I’ll go ahead and spoil the surprise: I never met the lady, but we chatted several times on the phone.  She always sounded cheerful and eager to help.  Of course for that matter, so did everyone in Monroe.

After several talks with Blanche I headed out of Bowling Green along Hwy 100.  On the map it seemed the most direct route, not only to Tompkinsvillebut to hit Fountain Run as well (Fountain Run has a park with an amphitheater that needed to be measured and documented), but Hwy 100 on the map does not take into account the slow moving tractors frequently utilizing said highway.  So it took a bit.   I should notethe Fountain RunPark furnishes theirpatrons with some of the coolest outhouses too.  The toilets are stone, and it was kind of awesome.

Anyway, at the far end of the park sat a little white house, and I needed some additional info.  So I walked over to the porch.  I was about to knock on the door when I noticed some deerskulls on the table outside and a skinning knife stuck in one of the porch supports.  I knocked anyway, and inside met this young guy named Johnny, who was going to be deployed soon. He answered my questions about the park and then confided he had been one of the local contractors hired to help build SKyPAC.  “Whoa! Really?” I said.  He confirmed, and I shook his hand and headed off to T-ville.

The first place I looked forwas the Monroe County Rolley-Hole Marble Super Dome.  You can Google more specifics about the game if you want, or you can hang around with this blog for a while, and at some point I’ll post more specifically about the game, how to play and who does play, and other pertinent details about all things Rolley-Hole.

Tangent aside, I made my way through downtown T-ville with some half-baked directions, and at thefork in the road, I turned right when Ishould have made aleft.  About five milesdown, I sawa couple of old guys: one was mowing the lawn and the other seemed tobe flipping his socks inside out.  I stopped and briefly explained about SKyPAC and cultural mapping andlooking for Rolley-Hole arenas; they quickly began bickering whether I needed to go straight to the Super Dome or if theBowman boys still played down by the market up the street or….well honestly, it went on for a bitand I started admiring the scenery until I heard directions.

Eventually the guy on the mower said, “Well yougoup the street for a couple miles.  You’ll go down a hilland there’sanother hill after thatone.  Well down in between those two hills there’s a grocery store.  TheBowmanboys used to havea Rolley-Hole court down thereand if they still play there I’m sure you’ll run into one of ‘em.  The Super Dome is back the other way through the stop sign.”  I said thanks and took leave toward the hills with the grocery store that might have a Rolley-Hole court.  Really I just wanted to see the Super Dome, but I figured they went to so much trouble arguing about where I needed to go, I could be polite.

Well the grocery store was kind of tiny, and I wasn’t entirely sure if it was open.  Eventually, after staring at it for a sec, I went in and grabbed a Sprite and asked the guy at the counter about the Rolley-Hole court and the Bowman boys and mentioned something about SKyPAC and cultural mapping. “Well,” he said, “if you goup this street you’ll see a barber shop on your left, and the Bowman’s house is as about as far away from that barber shop as we are from that stop sign.” He was pointing at a stop sign, “You see that stop sign there?” I did see the stop sign, and I told him as much.  “Well their house is the brick one and if you go knock on the door, I’m sure they can answer your questions.”  I said thanks and headed down the road to the Bowmans’.

Now the Bowmans were the Bowmans, but where I was going wasactually the Waldens because aBowman daughter hadmarried a Walden butthey’re still considered Bowmans.  It still confuses me a bit, but they all turned out to be great people and went above anything I had expected.  Anyway, I got tothe door and Mrs. Walden answered.  There was talk of SKyPAC and cultural mapping and she called up her son who was a couple houses down.  His name is Ben, and he walked up the back trail where I was waiting next to the car.  “You must be Ben!” I said.  He was Ben, and there was more talk of SKyPAC and cultural mapping.  He explained thegist of Rolley-Hole and briefly the history andhanded me a couple Rolley-Holemarbles he had made out of river granite.  “You want to watch me make one?” he asked.  Ofcourse Idid.

Now why I didn’t get to meet with Blanche and take her to getsome tasty barbecue like I had promised.  Wewalked a couple houses down and Ben went through the whole process of picking out stones and grinding them down and all things Rolley-Hole marble-making related.  Afterward his mom brought mea bookabout the history of the game.  So I left there with three homemade Rolley-Hole marbles and a book explaining it all.

As I was leaving I asked again about the Super Dome.  Ben lookedat the time and figuredit might be too late to catch anyone but told me the lights were on the left as you walk in the front door.  I guess he saw this confused me (because I couldn’t imagine anyone could just walk in whenever they wantedand turn on the lights) so he offered to take me down there and show me how to play.  As we left, Ben ran into hisgrandpa Colonel inthe drive.  The two talkedfor a bitand there was mention of SKyPAC and cultural mapping and the Monroe County Rolley-Hole Marble Super Dome.  So Colonel hopped in Ben’s truck, and we headed off to Super Dome.

The two old guys with the socks and the mower had been right: I should have turned left when I turned right at the fork in the road, butit worked out because I still madeit to the Super Dome.  Now the Super Dome istucked in back of the fairgrounds at the end of a dirt road, and it’s kind of a blue shack.  I’m not going to explain too much because this is getting lengthy, and I already omitted the side jaunt to Mud Lick. I hung out with Ben and Colonel, and they showed me how to play Rolley-Hole (which I was no good at), then took leave to meet up with Blanche.  Sadly, when I called it was too late, and she said she was already in her PJs.  So instead we had another great phone chat, and I promised to get her barbecue some other time.

I swung by Gamaliel to catch the Thursday night bluegrass jam they hold at the town hall, but it ended right before I got there.  I got some more stories about Monroe and the great people there, but I’ll get to that later.  Maybe after I finally track down Blanche and buy her some barbecue. – Joseph Southworth

From a Summer Intern at SKyPAC

This summer I interned for SKyPAC doing Community Engagement- a description while self-explanatory remains remarkably vague.  This is a sentiment I felt even as I signed on for the program. Neither had I any idea how quickly the gears turn at this operation; being my first foray into the performing arts field, my expectations formed around my knowledge of theatre.  My knowledge of theatre, though, lacked anything more than a handful of plays I participated in during high school.

Andee, my supervisor (you should know her cause she’s awesome), luckily had a plan- which turned out to be more like a mad scheme.  Not mad for any absence of substance or vision but mad as in maddening because Andee doesn’t stop to train; she bowls you over with her positive attitude and you hit the ground running.

This is what I did: in order to be neighborly, SKyPAC reached out to other non-profit organizations, seeking gaffs that we could help fill.  My job fell to be the greeting-and-handshake of new neighbors to these organizations.  I visited the International Center, Girl Scouts, Boys & Girls Club, and also some local businesses and other places.  I worked to spread the word about our summer camp programs and applicable scholarships, handed out posters, passed along business cards,and spoke with representatives of thenon-profits regarding their programs and how SKyPAC might be able to achieve their objectives.  Oh and there were murals.

Keepin mind, this represents merely an introduction to my summer with SKyPAC, eventually my internship developed into a culturalmapping project of the arts in the BRADD (Barren River Area Development District) region to be divulged in the following weeks. The BRADD region is the ten county region centered around Warren County.  It turned out to be more fulfillingthan my original summer plans of canoeing everyday, more fun, anda heck of lot more useful as far as life experience goes.  I should note, I have no intention of entering these entries chronologically.  Anyway, check back next week; I’ll tell you about Monroe County and Rolley Hole and bluegrass.

Sincerely, Joseph

PRESIDENTS ROCK!

We were thrilled to host on Monday two nearly sold-out performances of Rock the Presidents on SKyPAC’s main stage! Groups from over 26 different schools got to learn all kinds of interesting and often little-known facts about our country’s 44 different presidents. It was an energetic and fantastically fun way to learn more about the highest office in the country and to lead into next week’s big Election Day! For more information, check out the great article that appeared in Tuesday’s (10/31) Daily News.

We can’t believe that it is already November, and we are only two weeks away from the opening of Treasure Island, presented by the SKyPAC Youth Theater!

SKyPAC YOUTH THEATER AUDITIONS

The Capitol Arts Center has been buzzing with activity this week as the SKyPAC Youth Theater kicked off a busy fall with auditions for Treasure Island on Monday and Tuesday. Both audition days had a great turnout; this first production for kids ranging in age from 6 to 12 years old will be a fantastic adventure! The auditions were preceded by an audition workshop last Friday, where 24 students learned the basics of the audition process and met the Youth Theater leaders. The cast list for Treasure Island will be posted at the Capitol this afternoon. We wish the best of luck to all who participated!

NATIONAL ARTS AND HUMANITIES MONTH

October has been declared National Arts and Humanities Month, in observance and celebration of all that the arts do to strengthen our national culture and create dialogue, and to encourage our children to learn and to grow. We are proud to have this sort of celebration as part of our mission all year long, and are excited to have the opportunity to engage in it this month with the first in our new season of school day performances, Rock the Presidents, on October 29th.

Education in the arts and humanities will continue in November with the SKyPAC Youth Theater’s production of Treasure Island, and again in December as the Youth Theater presents Little Women. (For more information on how to get involved, check out our previous blog post!) It’s shaping up to be an exciting fall here at SKyPAC, and what better time to celebrate than during National Arts and Humanities month?

On another celebratory note, today, October 5, is World Teachers’ Day! We are lucky to work with dozens of incredible teachers who go to great lengths to make sure their students are engaged and active in their education, especially through the arts. So we give a warm thank you to all of our incredible teachers – your great work does not go unnoticed!

It’s a great time to celebrate the arts in education! How will you be celebrating?

YOUTH THEATER AUDITIONS AT SKyPAC

SKyPAC Youth Theater – Treasure Island Auditions
SKyPAC Youth Theater – Little Women Auditions

TREASURE ISLAND AUDITION
From the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted by Joseph George Caruso  Directed by Brandon Bradshaw

WHEN:  October 8 & 9, 2012 4:00 – 8:00PM  (Show Dates November 15 – 18, 2012)
WHERE:  Capitol Arts Center
WHO:  Ages 6 – 12

SYNOPSIS: It’s a family-friendly show packed with comedy and adventure on the high seas and beyond! When people think of pirates, they’re reminded of maps with a big “X”, buried treasure, peg legs, eye patches, screeching parrots, and a chorus of Arr! This can all be traced back to Treasure Island, where we follow the young Jim Hawkins as he seeks a treasure buried on Treasure Island, but he’ll only reach that fortune if he can outwit Long John Silver and Flint’s old crew.

LITTLE WOMEN
Adapted from the Louisa May Alcott classic book.
Directed by  Brandon Bradshaw & Tanner McGuire

WHEN:  October 22 & 23, 2012 4:00 – 8:00PM  (Show Dates December 6 – 9, 2012)
WHERE: 
Capitol Arts Center 
WHO: 
Ages 12-18

SYNOPSIS: Share this timeless and enduring classic about the March sisters’ journey from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War. Audiences of all generations will enjoy acquainting — or reacquainting — themselves with the sisters: Meg, the eldest; Jo, the high-spirited tomboy; Amy, the self-centered beauty; and gentle Beth, as well as their beloved Marmee and Father. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad as they share the joys and pains of growing up. This adaptation skillfully compresses the novel while still including milestones such as Meg’s declaration of independence from the tyranny of Aunt March, Amy’s trip to Europe and even Beth’s death. The play ends with Jo’s realization of her life’s work — the publication of her first novel. Interlaced with warmth, family loyalty and traditional values, all these important events provide us with a better understanding of our own lives. Penned by Louisa May Alcott 140 years ago, this much-loved classic tale’s message is still relevant for audiences today.

Smmer Camp 2012

We are pleased to welcome back Aaron Munoz to SKyPAC for the 2nd time this Summer.  He will be teaching a 3 hr. Shakespeare Intensive Workshop.

Open to community actors ages 12-24 for a Fee of $30 (if you know anyone that might be interested!)

This fun Shakespeare Workshop is an exploration of the Bard’s words and rhythms through the voice and body.  Games, vocal exercises and movement are the main course, with a little plate of stage combat on the side!

Led by Aaron Munoz of Nashville Shakespeare Festival

More about Aaron: Two years ago I relocated to the south.  First to Atlanta, and now in Nashville.  I’ve been in Feature films, indies, a TV Movie, shot a large co-star role for an ABC pilot, and fit in some plays at my favorite place to be onstage; the Tony Award winning Actors Theatre of Louisville.  This last year I’ve spread my wings and become a contributing writer for Showfax, am self-producing some comedic shorts, and just shot a recurring guest star role for AMC’s The Walking Dead, as well as contributing as an educator to Nashville Shakespeare Festival programs.

If you have any questions you can drop me an e-mail AGentry@theskypac.com or you can call SKyPAC at 270-904-5000. Thanks so much, and we hope to see you all there!

Art Project to Create Mural

Nonprofit, community groups cooperating on initiative in Allen County

By JUSTIN STORY, The Daily News, jstory@bgdailynews.com/783-3256 | Posted: Monday, May 14, 2012 11:59 am

SCOTTSVILLE — Several organizations are teaming up in Scottsville on a community art project that will result in the painting of a mural promoting the city.

Heart of Scottsville, a nonprofit organization dedicated topreservation and economic development of the city’s downtown area, and Allen County Schools hosted a mural workshop Thursday at the Allen County Cooperative Extension Office.

Working with Bowling Green artist Andee Rudloff, education director for the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center, about 15 people gathered to sketch out ideas, drawing in pencil and then painting their concepts for the mural on a synthetic housewrap surface.

“I want to make sure everyone here is part of the final composition,” Rudloff said while taking a break from mixing paints.

The project has also involved the cooperation of the Scottsville Art Guild and Haven 4 Change, where the mural willultimately be painted next month.

Before the drawing began, Rudloff guided everyone through a quick brainstorming session in which people were encouraged to come up with a list of five words or concepts that best represent Scottsville and then make a simple drawing to represent each word.

The workshop also involved a little encouragement from Rudloff for people who might not have considered themselves artists.

“Once you trust yourself with the brushand once you see yourself as an artist, your experience gets richer and richer,” Rudloff said.

Things and ideas such as horses, farms, downtown, friendliness and Barren River Lake State Resort Park were sketched out and then painted by those in attendance.

Education Director, Andee Rudloff

Rudloff said the ideas fleshed out Thursday would eventually be incorporated into the mural, which will be painted June 9 on a 35-foot wood fence at Haven 4 Change on Hillview Drive.

Jamie Boler, executive director of Heart of Scottsville, worked on painting an illustration of a streetlight to represent historic downtown.

Boler said he was encouraged by the turnout at Thursday’s workshop and looked forward to additional participation from the community on the mural.

“The goal is for this to be a community project,” Boler said. “We want the community to come out and help us put this together, and hopefully they can see the unifying power that the arts can have in the community.”

The date of the mural painting coincides with the first night of this year’s Arts on Main Summer Concert Series, held on the second and fourth Saturdays of June, July and

August in downtown Scottsville next to U.S. Bank.

ART BADGE

To earn the ART BADGE Girl Scout Troop 349 discussed art with SKyPAC Education Director and painter, Andee Rudloff.  The girls asked Andee what inspires her to paint, what she likes to paint and why.  The girls looked at some of the murals Andee created as well as murals inspired by the SKyPAC mural.  The girls painted a 12 foot by 4 foot mural about the history of Girl Scouts as well as activities they have experienced through scouting.  The images developed during the workshop tell their Girl Scout journey and story.  The finished mural included symbols of scouting as well as portraits, landscapes, and elements from life.
