Centre alums create online theatre community
“Olivia Kernekin ’15 and Tory Parker ’16 have found a way to cultivate their mutual love of theatre with the creation of Don’t Care, Still Good (DCSG), an online community of Theatre at Centre (formerly DramaCentre) alumni. The DCSG Theatre Fall Showcase will air LIVE on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. EST, with eight productions, seven directors, 17 actors and the graduating classes of 2014-2020 represented, including two years of students who studied abroad at England’s Rose Bruford College (one of London’s leading drama schools).
Anyone can watch a DCSG production at no charge. To be notified of upcoming events, sign up for their mailing list at dcsgtheatre.org or follow them on Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. All shows will be available individually starting November 22.
DCSG is founded on the principle that any theatre can be good theatre with community support and creative thinking, regardless of available resources. And the name, according to Parker, is based on the mentality that, “While it’s not the same theatre we’ve always made; it’s not the process we’re used to. But it doesn’t matter, and we don’t care, because it’s still good.”” READ FULL ARTICLE
Written by Tory Parker. Directed by Olivia Kernekin. Performed by Brennen Amonett, Joshua Jerome, Martha Grace B. Moore & Emily Morrell.

THEATRE REVIEW by Chatham Life and Style
“Twilight Sleep starts strong: a black and red visual of a man silhouetted in a doorway combines with a mournful male voice singing the folk song “I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger” to create a haunting atmosphere. The song is well chosen, its lyrics hinting at what’s to come. A physical stage, extensive props, and detailed costuming are unnecessary for Twilight Sleep to prove itself; the audience views all four characters head on, uncomfortably close, and the play is the stronger for having such an intimate look at their faces as they experience equally strong reactions of fear, fury, regret, and tenderness.” READ FULL REVIEW
