September 29, 2008
PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. – Central Arizona College’s Lifelong Learners (C.A.L.L.) program is offering four exciting theater and art events designed to fill social calendars throughout the fall.
When the lights dim and the curtains rise, guests will lose themselves in the intense production Wait until Dark at the Hale Theater in Gilbert on Saturday, Oct. 4. Showtime is 3 p.m.
Frederick Knott’s hit Broadway thriller follows a blind woman who uses her ingenuity and courage to outwit criminals in search of a doll containing a dark secret.
Ticket prices for C.A.L.L. members are $17, while tickets for non-members are priced at $19.
The Art of Improv Theater is a two-part journey of comedy and improvisation at the historic Paramount Theater and at Central Arizona College’s Corporate Center in Casa Grande.
Ken Ferguson, the artistic director of the Paramount, will teach participants the skills needed for success in improvisation on Monday, Oct. 6, from 3-5 p.m. at the Corporate Center.
On Saturday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 p.m., participants will return to Casa Grande to attend a performance at the Paramount.
Ferguson has taught and performed improvisation for many years and is a founding member of The Remainders, Arizona's first and only improvised musical troupe.
In addition to the laughter and the fun, participants will soak up the ambience of the 79-year old theater built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style.
Rooms 444 of Central Arizona College’s Superstition Mountain Campus in Apache Junction will become center stage for the dramatic musical The Wager.
The show will take place on Friday, Dec. 5, at noon and is $10 for C.A.L.L. members and $20 for non-members.
Eugene Anderson, the composer, producer and performer, will share his story of the trials, tribulations and great success in staging The Wager. The show has been entered into a pair of international competitions.
For those who want a museum experience, C.A.L.L. is planning a trip to the Phoenix Art Museum and a viewing of the Cowboy Artists of America exhibit on Friday, Oct.31.
Started in 1965 by Western artists Charlie Dye, John Hampton, Joe Beeler, and George Phippen, the Cowboy Artists of America has a mission to perpetuate the memory and culture of the Old West.
Each year, the Phoenix Art Museum holds an exhibit of CAA artists – the only time during the year that all members showcase their work in the same location.
