Join We Players' creative team at this engaging afternoon salon where we will learn more about the design process unique to site-integrated theatre and explore the rich artistic tradition of masks.
The use of masks has been a tradition in the theatre for as long as people have been telling stories. In ancient Greece masks were used to project facial expressions to convey emotion to massive amphitheaters. As time went on, their use evolved into something more subtle—a disguise, entertainment, or a cloak of anonymity during moments of debauchery.
Be sure to come feeling creative and ready to play! Get your hands into paper mache and experiment with making your own mask forms. For the feisty among you, join our Fight Captain Britt Lauer to learn the basics of sword-play! Wine, and beer will be for sale.
This October, We Players present the most classic of love stories, Romeo & Juliet, on Montalvo’s grounds. Check back for more information about Romeo & Juliet, where audience members will be guests at the Capulet's elegant masquerade ball in the Historic Villa!
