News, Notes and "Medea"

   Catching up!

   - Coming up this weekend, ARTS will present a real classic (in the truest sense of the word): MedeaBased on the myth of Jason and Medea and first produced in 431 BCE, the plot centers on the actions of Medea, the wife of Jason; she finds her position in the Greek world threatened as Jason leaves her for a Greek princess of Corinth. Medea seeks vengeance on Jason and all those who have wronged her. Complete with Leah Turley's incredible movement-based direction, a full all-female Greek Chorus and more, this show is like nothing ARTS has ever done before. The play will be presented on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 for the show only, and $30 for dinner and the show. Reservations are needed for dinner - call 304-733-2787.

   - We hope to have some interviews with the cast coming up soon - watch this space!

   - ARTS is also slowly rolling out its 2016 season. So far they've pulled back the curtain on two shows: William Shakespeare's As You Like It, and Sondheim's A Little Night Music

   More news as it develops!
