Festival Playhouse Newsletter- Week 7 SP’21

Hello everybody and welcome to the end of Week 7!

We’re so excited for Water By the Spoonful coming up next week and speaking of Water By the Spoonful we still need ushers for this production; please contact Daniel Whitcomb, House Manager, at Daniel.Whitcomb17@kzoo.edu

As we’re thinking about our next show, we’d like to mention our ACTF nominees from last quarter’s The Compass. Emma Fergusson ‘22 and Matthew Swarthout ‘22 both received the Irene Ryan nomination for their lawyerly performances. In addition, Sam Ewald ‘24 was nominated for a Certificate in Stage Management and Angela Mammel ‘22 for a Certificate in Scenic Design for her work on the projections. Overall, our respondent thoroughly enjoyed the show and hopes we continue to make great theatre.

This weekend, Saturday, May 15th, at 7pm, K’s Monkapult and the Jazz Band will be performing as the opening acts for comedian Josh Johnson on the Quad. Only students can watch in-person, but streaming is available to faculty and staff. Registration is available here.

The Graphic Design Team for next season’s shows met this week! Thanks to Angela Mammel ’22 Chris Diaz ’21, and Jorence Quiambao ’21 for continuing this wonderful work for our department!

Rebecca Chan ’22 was asked to produce a track for a recording artist named Mt. Etna. No release date yet, but the track is done and we can’t wait to hear it!

The Arts Council is looking for volunteers to assist at Art on the Mall on June 4 & 5! Art on the Mall is a two-day, outdoor Arts Festival in conjunction with Kalamazoo Downtown Partnership’s JumpstART weekend. Volunteers can help with event set-up, clean-up, traffic monitoring, assisting artists, and more. Year after year, returning volunteers say that this is one of their favorite events of the summer! 

They are also looking for volunteers for Art Hop on the first Friday of every month. Volunteer roles for Art Hop include helping with set-up and clean-up, greeting guests, assisting artists, and more. This is a great opportunity to get those volunteer hours in and have some fun! 

That’s all for this week. See you next week at Water By the Spoonful. Get your tickets!
