Past Show

Jactheatre presents TOGETHER/ A P A R T – a Theatre Workshop production directed by Jason Howell – April 23/24, and again April 30/May 1.

How do we keep the spirit of creation and stoke the fire that burns in our students’ souls when they collaborate, in a time where we are asked to avoid gathering? How do we support human connection in a time of human distancing?

For the first time in 50 years Theatre Workshop is presenting a series of monologues to our audience. These monologues broadly address our connection to the people in our lives and to our own reality when we are struggling to remember what makes us who we are at our core.

The show is performed by the Theatre Workshop students with design conceptualization by the 2nd year Professional Theatre Production students. The show, performed live on stage like any other play, with a stage manager, board operators, running crew and live acting, then uses streaming technology to add digital backgrounds live-to-capture. It gives our students the opportunity to work all at once, while maintaining social distance. Together. Apart.

Proceeds from the pay-what-you-can online event will be donated to the JAC Student Food Pantry.

Broadcast April 23, 24, 30 and May 1st @ 8PM via jactheatre.anywhereseat.com
