Little Globe Theater Opens New Season

Little Globe Theater Opens New Season

The Little Globe Theater will perform an ensemble of theatrical scenes spanning time from Greek theater in 431 B.C. to the present.

Performances will be held on Saturday, August 10 at 8:30 p.m., and Sunday, August 11 at 2:00 p.m. at The First Congregational Church, 320 Beach 94 Street.

In "A Second Helping," members of the theater’s summer workshop will perform a series of scenes in which the masks of tragedy and comedy are equally represented in works, which span the gamut of human experience written about by playwrights throughout 2,500 years of theater.

"What was ancient Greek theater like? What did Henry the VIII and Anne Bolyn say to each other just days before the lusty king was to have Anne executed for adultery? What do adolescent boys discuss?" are questions dealt with in the production of "A Second Helping," according to Mario Martone, director of The Little Globe Theater.

The Little Globe Theater offers workshops in acting and directing. The scenes have been selected from an acting workshop designed to explore the rich diversity of theatrical forms and acting styles, beginning with the birth of theater in ancient Greece. It’s first production, "A Baker’s Dozen" opened to rave reviews in April.
