Commonweal Theatre’s Student Matinee Series ready for Fall 2013


Fri, Aug 9th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. — The Commonweal Theatre Company announces the Student Matinee Series for the upcoming 2013 fall school semester. This program reaches more than 2,000 regional students and teachers a year as part of Commonweal Theatre’s goal that every student from the area will have had the opportunity to attend live, professional theatre at least once by the time they graduate high school.

At a cost of only $5 per student, Commonweal welcomes classes to attend a full production in Lanesboro at a specially scheduled matinee. The experience begins with teachers receiving a comprehensive study guide for their students which includes a plot synopsis, discussion of themes, background information about the play and playwright, and sample questions for discussion. Enhancement videos are also paired with the study guide. Commonweal artists also visit schools and lead a workshop in the classroom with students about the performance the students are about to see and how it relates to their curriculum. Every student matinee performance also includes a post-performance discussion with members of the cast, where students can ask questions about the show or life in the theatre in general.

This coming fall, the Commonweal offers a wide range of productions, specifically encouraging teachers to bring their classes to the literary adventure Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure. Featuring a story spun together from of a number of tales about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous detective, this adventure follows Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in a thrilling chase as they face off against archenemy Professor Moriarty. Matinees to Sherlock Holmes are offered through the month of October and are a great experience for students of all ages!

Also this fall, Commonweal will present The Memory of Water —a moving and often hilarious tale of family, love and loss as three sisters return to their childhood home to celebrate their mother’s life, all the while searching for the secret of a happy future buried within childhood memories.

Students can celebrate the holidays with a charming comedy about a 1939 Atlanta family, The Last Night of Ballyhoo. The classic film Gone with the Wind is set to première, rumors of war abound, but the real concern is who is taking whom to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season.

Commonweal’s Student Matinee Series is underwritten by F&M Community Bank of Preston and .....
