The Endicott Performing Arts Center and Theatre Street Productions are teaming up once again for performances of the beloved musical Man of La Mancha. Director Patrick Foti and actor Andrea Gregori join us to talk about the production and the play’s journey from being a non-musical television drama to becoming the Broadway musical that has been translated into more languages than any other.
Vortex, the dance wing of SRO Productions presents ‘Gripped’ on October 20, 21, and 22 in the Endicott Performing Arts Center on Washington Avenue in Endicott. Choreographer Anne Trebilcock talks about the collaboration that created this exploration of addiction and its effects on family and friends. http://wskg.org/audio/gripped.mp3
The Endicott Performing Arts Center is presenting the premiere of a new musical. ‘Ascend’ starts out where ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ ends. Playwright Lori Zabadal-Dayton talks about how “the play found her”, and about the process of dramatizing the story, writing the music, and saying good-bye to some of the songs and scenes during the rehearsal process. Her daughter, Jennifer Dayton, who is one of the dancers in the show, tells why dance is so essential to the telling of the story. http://wskg.org/audio/ascend.mp3
