One of the fall’s most anticipated events is the Hyde Park Art Show, happening October 6 along Edwards and Madison Roads. The event features local and regional artists, and it also helps fund scholarships for students majoring in art at local colleges. Jane Durrell previews the show with organizing committee member Jackie Reau.
Playhouse in the Park’s Thompson Shelterhouse Theater premieres Seven Spots on the Sun by playwright Martín Zimmerman starting September 28. Our Rick Pender talks with the Playhouse’s new artistic associate, and director of this play, KJ Sanchez, about this fable of revenge and redemption and the talented cast of all Latino actors.
The start of this season’s Broadway In Cincinnati productions at the Aronoff Center will have a distinctly Hollywood feel – first off is the musical version of the hit film Ghost, followed by the musical version of the hit film Flashdance. Rick Pender is joined by Genevieve Miller Holt from the Broadway series to preview these touring shows.
Of all the films turned into Broadway musicals, this might be the most unusual. Showbiz Players is currently presenting Carrie: The Musical, based on the Steven King-based movie. Director Michael Shawn Starks came in to the studio to describe this stage event with our Jim Stump.
Jane Durrell introduces listeners to the InsideOut Studio, based in Hamilton, which serves artists with various physical and mental challenges. They have recently closed exhibits at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts and Miami University-Hamilton campus. Art Education Coordinator Steve Smith and artists Ashley Parris and Jody Mann describe the program and its meaning to them and the community.
