This from our Port Townsend pal Joey Pipia (too late to make it
into the Aug. 21 edition of Kitsap A&E, but we’ll list it the
next two weeks):
“A Lark in the Park: An Improvised Shakespeare
Tragedy” directed by Joey Pipia opens
Thursday, August 27th at 6 p.m. in Chetzemoka Park (Jackson and
Blaine streets) for a two-weekend run of amazing theater.
“This is a show of substance – a tragedy with nothing less than
human lives in the balance,” and, adds the director, “each play is
completely improvised on the spot; Thursday’s play will be entirely
different from Friday’s play.”
Each night the play will spring from the audience who will
provide three lines of dialogue, a title, and three props (by
Audience member are invited, but not required, to bring a prop
that may end up being used in the show. Props must conform to the
following rules: Weighing more than an ounce and less than ten
pounds, objects may not pose a danger to audience or cast members,
and lastly, objects may not be alive.
The players are Mike Biskup, Katie Ottaway, Karolina Anderson,
Shachaf Ben-kiki, and Rebecca May, with musical accompaniment by
Daniel Neville and Jim Parfitt.
A Lark in the Park will be presented in one act lasting just
over an hour. And will be staged in near to the entrance of
Chetzemoka Park; signs will direct you in.
The show runs two weekends only: Thursday and Friday August 27
& 28, and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday September 4, 5, & 6.
