Portia Ezell, one of the grant’s “partners,” said it will “strengthen arts in the community.”
The partnership behind the School-Community-Arts-Parents Partnership grant is now formally known as Trigg on Stage, and will spend the next several months planning a small musical to be held in the Trigg County High School’s Little Theatre next June.
In the meanwhile, Trigg on Stage will host a series of workshops covering the many aspects of a staged production — acting, set design, costuming, etc.
The first workshop, being held in September, will be exclusively for faculty from Trigg County’s schools. According to Ezell, it will give an overview of stage production and will also focus on theatre terminology.
“[It will explain] how all the parts work together to form the whole,” Ezell said.
The community workshops will begin in October.
Though the most prominent part of any production is its actors, Ezell said shy people needn’t be discouraged from participating because there are many different interests which can be pursued in theatre, including sewing costumes, building sets and playing music.
