IN PROGRESS

Mondays Masterclass: A series of free online courses featuring professional theater artists produced by Theater Tuscaloosa continues to be available as part of the company’s Spreading Joy program. The most recent addition features actors Gary Wise and Drew Baker talking about their commitment to performing and what makes a great community theater experience. Past masterclasses include Theater Tuscaloosa’s artistic director emeritus, Paul K. Looney, speaking of experiences merging the alliance that has become the company; former Scrooge actors Jeff Wilson and George Thagard talk about facing one of the most iconic figures in theater and literature; advice from professional actors Allan McLeod (“You’re the Worst”, “Parks and Recreation”, “Drunk History”), Dylan Riley Snyder (“Kickin ‘It”, “Better Call Saul”, “Life Pendant Wartime” , young Tarzan in “Tarzan” on Broadway, Jake Boyd (“Are We There Yet?”, “30 Rock”, “Jessica Jones”, national tours of “Oklahoma” and “Wicked”), Nick Rashaad Burroughs (on Broadway in “Kinky Boots” and “Tina”, nationwide tour of “Something Rotten”), all former performers of the Tuscaloosa Theater; and sessions on directing, design, construction, writing and more. All available. on the group’s YouTube channel.

TCT’s ‘The Show Must Go Online’: To kick off the celebration of its 35th season, the Tuscaloosa Children’s Theater has created this virtual show to allow young performers to continue to enjoy a good distance. It was written for Zoom by Jessica Penzias with lyrics by Dave Hudson and music by Denver Casado. Rehearsals and recording were done online and led by TCT Artistic Coordinator Drew Baker, with Vice Chairman of the Board Richard Livingston providing music and video editing support.

While the videos were recorded separately, when chained together they tell the story of a group of drama students desperate to keep their annual musical alive. Their exhausted theater teacher is powerless in the face of technology but determined to help his students achieve their dream. The 35-minute show is free to watch at www.tuscaloosachildrenstheater.net, although a donation link is available after viewing.
