Spotlight on Africa

Original post made on Jun 29, 2007

As Stanford Summer Theater ramps up for its 2007 season, entitled "Africa Onstage," Memorial Hall is abuzz with activity. Dancers move to the sounds of African jazz and traditional drumming. Actors concentrate on mimicking unfamiliar dialects — lengthening vowels and blunting consonants. In the scene shop, one of SST's designers uses a jigsaw to create the silhouette of a sparse, low-spreading thorn tree.

Nice article about "Africa Onstage" (Arts & Entertainment) starting July 5 at Stanford. I want to mention that there is a Patron's preferance. Join the new Patrons Circle for $120 covering the entire Stanford Summer Theater season -- for the cost of three shows, you get four shows. As a member, you can join the fun at the pre-show gala on Saturday, July 7. ("Tings Dey Happen" by Dan Hoyle...an amazing one-man live show). Meet the artists and the cast, geat food, and Afro-jazz music.
