“Snow Angel” opens at Aquinas College Tomorrow Night

Snow Angel by David Lindsay-Abaire

When the quiet town of Deerpoint, Vermont is hit by the biggest blizzard in 107 years, a mysterious girl named Eva steps out of a snow bank and into the lives of 15 confused teenagers who are asked to help her in her search. What Eva’s searching for –and who she truly is– becomes a mystery that baffles, divides, and energizes the teens of Deerpoint. Told through journal entries and interactions among the students over the course of a single snow day, Snow Angel is a funny and eerie tale of teen angst, discovery, and the power of believing.

Workshop Will Be Rescheduled – Pipeline Series Continues Tomorrow

Due to yesterday’s severe weather and dangerous road conditions we postponed Saturday’s Playing with Contemporary Theatre Workshop.  We will reschedule the workshop again at a future date. Stay tuned for more details or RSVP to the event on Facebook to receive updates.


Up tomorrow – our continuation of the Pipeline Reading Series:

February 22nd, 7pm
The Oath by Jacqueline Goldfinger

Location: GRCC Spectrum Theater Mezzanine, 160 Fountain Street

A Southern Gothic tale set during the Great Depression in which a wandering preacher is embroiled in the passions and politics of a swampy Florida outpost ruled with a macabre sense of justice by two rival sisters. It’s a darkly comic look at balancing ambition and ideals in a time of crisis.

Jacquelline Goldfinger - Author of The OathJacqueline (Jackie) Pardue Goldfinger is a dramaturg and award-winning playwright/screenwriter from Tallahassee, Florida (M.F.A. Screen and Television Writing, University of Southern California). She is the Literary Manager/PTC@PLAY Festival Director at Philadelphia Theatre Company (PTC) and a Senior Lecturer at University of the Arts (UArts). She’s also a Regional Vice President of the Literary Managers and Dramaturges of the Americas (LMDA).

Jacqueline has this to say about her work:  “My work is inspired by the Southern Gothic style as portrayed in classic fiction – a style that heightens reality, gives epic importance to everyday situations, and embraces the macabre as a necessary, and instructive, part of life – yet transforms this literary style into an active and dramatic narrative for the stage.” [website]
