Performing Arts Abound this Week

Over the next two weekends, we have an explosion of performing arts to enjoy as trimester one comes to a close.

First up is the Black Box play, Love & Information October 31 - November 2 at 7:30 PM.  Directed by Jesse Hawley, the play shares vignettes about the challenges of communication in relationships, for all sorts of reasons! It is funny and thought-provoking and should be a fun night out. Also, it is important to recognize the effort the after school studio art team put into the beautiful floor mural that makes up the staging area. Read more about Love and Information.

Next weekend, the Dance Recital is going up on the Hoyt Stage once and only once on November 7 at 6:30 PM. Ms. Kimberlee Williams has choreographed a number to honor the 33 crew members of El Faro, featured across the school as part of our visiting author’s visit with Rachel Slade, author of Into the Raging Sea. She shared, “Choosing to do a piece in the show about the story of Into the Raging Sea by Rachel Slade was an easy choice.  Reading the book overwhelmed me in many ways. Getting to know the characters, the laws, the hierarchies, and all of the decisions that lead to the sinking of this massive ship with 33 precious lives on it simply robbed me of sleep at night.  I imagined that the outcome could have been different if so many folks had spoken up or if others had listened to those that found the courage to speak up. I chose to put all of that energy of compassion, empathy, and even anger into choreography, as I often do.  It’s a release for me, honestly. But, I gave the characters in the story the unity and support that they needed to create an ending that our hearts long for reading the book. The piece has so many moving parts that it was one of the most difficult pieces I’ve put together in my career as a choreographer, but it was worth it to see it all come together.  I hope that the audience can feel the spirit of the piece and learn the lessons left for us in this story. It is going to be amazing! “ Indeed, along with other group, solo, and duet numbers, the dance recital is always fantastic!

Also on November 7, just after the dance recital, is the opening of Almost, Maine, our second Black Box production starting at 7:30 PM. The show continues through November 9. This show depicts the life of those living in a small town in northern Maine:  Almost, Maine. According to director John Heavey, “the play explores different relationships at different points of evolution: break-ups, first loves, enduring friendships, etc.” Come see how our actors handle the magical moments and powerful emotions expressed through the script.

To finish up the extravaganza of performing arts this month is the Applied Music Recital on November 11 at 6:30 PM in Lyndon South Auditorium. The students who do music as their after school commitment are required to perform a piece they have been practicing all fall. These performances are typically very well done and represent the range of talent in our student community on a range of instruments. Please come out and support our talented musicians on guitar, voice, piano, violin and more!

We are fortunate at Tabor to have so many talented performers to help us question life and enjoy the beauty of human creativity. Don’t miss these chances to experience something new, witness talent and hard work come together and cheer on our creative Seawolves.

Due to limited space in the Black Box, you must reserve your place for the drama productions at the Switchboard. Dance and music recitals are open seating in each venue. Enjoy the shows!
