What is your favorite line from your character in the play?

Does running away from Lady Bracknell count as a favorite line?

Are you a rule breaker or a rule follower?

Definitely more of a rule follower…for the most part.

If you lived in the Victorian Era, what type of person do you think you would be?

I would be upper class, but not aristocratic.

What aspect of Victorian England would you enjoy the most?

The literature and theater, and the extravagant female clothing. Although I’m perfectly fine without the corsets.

Live in the city with weekends in the country.

Afternoon tea or a dinner party?

Probably dinner party?

Which character from the show do you relate to the most?

I relate to Gwendolen the most.

Why should people come and see our show?

This is a classic piece of theater. Everyone should know this story and we have really lovely cast members. It’s laugh-out-loud hilarious.

Meagan Flinders– Cecily Cardew

What is your favorite line from your character in the play?

How do I choose? The one I relate to the most is “I am not punctual myself, I know, but I do like punctuality in others.” I also really like “What horrid clothes you’ve got on. Do go and change them.”

Are you a rule breaker or a rule follower?

I am definitely a rule follower.

If you lived in the Victorian Era, what type of person do you think you would be?

I would probably be a lady in waiting–or another position that is somewhere in the middle instead of lower class or lady.

What aspect of Victorian England would you enjoy the most?

Having tea time be so frequent and important.

Country or city?

Country. I need some space to roam and breathe and take in the nature.

Afternoon tea or a dinner party?

Afternoon tea!

Which character from the show do you relate to the most?

I relate to Jack/Ernest in the fact that I don’t like taking nonsense from people. I do relate to Cecily, though, because we are both young and enjoy using our imagination and love tea and can sometimes get pretty silly and giddy.

Why should people come and see our show?
This show is witty, fun, hysterical, and completely outlandish!

Bradley Mackay– Dr. Chasuble, D.D. ( Not pictured)

What is your favorite line from your character in the play?

“Your guardian has a very emotional nature” but I must say I love Algy’s line when he says “ now that you mention it, I have been very bad in my own small way.”

Are you a rule breaker or a rule follower?

Rule follower, unless rule breaking is consensually sanctioned.

If you lived in the Victorian Era, what type of person do you think you would be?

I would be a lower lord, get the best of both worlds.

What aspect of Victorian England would you enjoy the most?

 The elevated language.

Country or city?

Country.

Afternoon tea or a dinner party?

 Afternoon tea.

Which character from the show do you relate to the most?

 Gwendolen.

Why should people come and see our show?

Because it’s beautiful and clever and you need to be cultured as my dad might say.

Alana Jeffery– Lady Bracknell (Not pictured)

What is your favorite line from your character in the play?

“Never speak disrespectfully of society Algernon, only people who can’t get into it do that”

Are you a rule breaker or a rule follower?

Lady Bracknell makes the rules, but Alana generally breaks them.

If you lived in the Victorian Era, what type of person do you think you would be?

Presents and Presence

December 03, 2022 08:05 AM
One of the first things many people think of when they hear the word Christmas is gifts. Gifts and Christmas have been interchangeable for a very long time in our world’s history. But over time, what people think of as gifts has shifted. Each new era or generation defines it differently. There were monetary gifts such as gold, frankincense, and myrrh in the days of Christ, when all things were handcrafted and only the wealthiest of people could have precious ore or spices from distant lands. Or perhaps, during the great wars of the twentieth century, a gift of war bonds was precious when patriotism and the survival of the world made things like toys seem trivial to many. Now, everyone wants the latest iPhone or the newest technology. Throughout our lives, what we want also changes. Gifts shift from toys, games, and candy to technology or clothes–all inconsequential things that provide short-term entertainment. However, all of these things fade and have less impact on our true joy. Joy can really be found in the simple things of life.

Cultural Exchanges

December 03, 2022 07:15 AM
During planning for Christmas Around the World, Jeanette reached out to people who had the opportunity to tour and represent the United States this summer. I had the opportunity to go to tour in Spain with American Rhythm and the opportunities we had to meet people and learn about their cultures and their experiences, were truly incredible. We were asked about our experiences with meeting other people and what it was like to share cultural gifts with them. These questions were used to get answers from dancers and their answers were in the videos and audio you will see and hear throughout the show. These are the more detailed versions of my personal answers.

Gifts of Music and Cultures: Poland

December 02, 2022 10:02 PM
Throughout our time in Spain we had the opportunity to meet so many people from all around the world. From Mexico, Poland, Bulgaria, and of course Spain, we were able to meet so many amazing people and make so many amazing connections. We didn’t all speak the same language, many of them didn’t speak English and we didn’t speak many of their languages. So relying on the power of song and dance, we were able to connect through different aspects.
