From The Hip And From The Hip: All Stars- A 48-hour Play Festival  | Open: 05/31/11 Close: 06/05/11

From the Hip:

From the Hip is a 48 Hour Play festival in which directors, actors, and playwrights are thrust into groups and allowed to collaborate. Improvisation is used as the spring board for the creative process and each festival always has a surprise theme. Playwrights take inspiration from improvisation to write a ten minute play- overnight. Actors and director are given a day to rehearse and perform the new play. On performance nights, the audience votes for their favorite. The winning plays move onto the finale night for a chance at winning an amazing prize.

From the Hip provides an environment where people of any skill level can try out a new skill, get back into the swing of an old skill, or just have fun practicing a skill they play with all the time. Not only is this a fun, fast, and furious environment full of creativity and spontaneity.


From the Hip: All Stars

From the Hip: All Stars brings together the best of the best from previous festivals. The same format is used to create the new plays, but this time each group gets four chances to perform and compete for votes.

The Amaranthine Thread  | Open: 02/19/10 Close: 02/21/10
 (A Tribute to the late Leah Ryan)

Amaranthine is both the color of purple and a mythical flower that never fades. In writing “The Amaranthine Thread,” a young American wrestles with the illness of her mentor Leah Ryan, the insensitivity of her playboy-cum-activist boyfriend Paul and the ghost of her Gypsy grandmother Lola. However, it is not Lola's intentions to haunt her, but to reconnect with her through “the Amaranthine Thread”-- the flame that will not go out, the will not only to survive but to live. In the end, it is Leah who serves as the link among these three very different women.

Leah -- Alexa Servodidio
Esperanza -- Iveliz Negron
Lola -- Olivia Schlueter-Corey
Paul -- Frank Genniro
