Stoll, Brian At the Barricades ~ Theatre Fans and the Stage Door Experience History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
I will talk about the role theatre fans like myself have played in the theatre community over the centuries. I will share why die-hard theatre fans become repeat attenders and may see a production more than 900 times! In addition, I will inform patrons about the stage door experience which I briefly touched upon at the end of my last program, but was not able to go into detail. I consider stage-dooring to be the icing on the cake after attending a Broadway production. Stage-dooring is when theatre fans rush to the theater's stage door after a performance in hopes of meeting cast members and complimenting them on their performances. Many fans also try to obtain selfies with the stars and have their playbills autographed as keepsakes. In addition to sharing my own knowledge and experiences at many stage doors on Broadway I will include views and experiences from both sides of the barricade.
$201- $350

Herscovitch, Lara Workshop - Wingspan: Building Creative Confidence and Courage Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Other
(Women & Wingspan: same workshop with female-only participants) To be human is to be creative. Even so, many of us have trouble connecting to, nurturing and prioritizing our creativity. In this engaging, interactive, values-centered workshop, participants will learn strategies to connect to their internal compass and harness their innate wisdom, patience and tolerance for taking creative risks. Through individual writing and reflection, individual and group exercises, live and recorded music, and group discussion, we will cover: debunking the myths of process and perfection; sources of inspiration; embracing fear and the vulnerability of creative connection; letting comparison be inspiring instead of toxic; identifying and overcoming stumbling blocks; letting go of achievement-driven art and embracing intrinsic, soulful expression regardless of outcome; connecting one’s art to purpose; and allowing one’s unique perspective and voice to shine. No matter from which creative arena – painting, drawing, pottery, poetry, photography, music and beyond – each participant will have protected time and space to re-discover and re-commit to expressing their creative core.
