An original production inspired by "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" by Gabriel García Márquez

Directed and Choreographed by Judy Austin and Kathryn Moller

Dark, twisted, fantastic realism--this original full-length dance-theatre production is an adaptation of the story written by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez. It tells the tale of a mysterious winged man that falls from the sky into a small coastal village. As the town’s people become curious about him they overlook the possibility of his magical nature, preferring the spectacle of a circus. In so doing, they let fall away the gifts in life that have true and deep meaning.

Macbeth

Macbeth

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Ginny Davis

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something
wicked this way comes.”  

Known in the theatre world simply, and somewhat superstitiously, as the “Scottish Play,” this classic combines secret plots, witchcraft, and murder into a riveting ageless tale. Please join King Duncan, Lady Macbeth, the three witches, and the rest of the cast for this traditional staging of one of the bard’s most famous works.

Written by Finnian Sullivan
Directed by Laura Cuetara

This modern play was inspired by the determination, resolve, and the eventual death of eleven men and women who left their homes in Mexico and Central America to find low wage work in the United States. Throughout, the playwright wove together theatrical realism, music, and movement to convey both the difficulty of their journey and their emotional connections to the people they met along the way. This staged reading was a collaboration between Silverton’s
A Theatre Group and the Department of Theatre. It was held as a fundraiser with the proceeds benefiting the department’s scholarship fund.
