Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents Shakespeare’s Richard III
May 8 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents Shakespeare's Richard III

Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents

Richard III

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Terry Shea

“Since I cannot prove a lover, to entertain these fair well-spoken days, I am determined to prove a villain, and hate the idle pleasures of these days.”

 

William Shakespeare’s murderous Richard will stop at nothing to be king of England. With wit and scheming, he weaves a bloody trail through his own family in his quest for power. Counter-Productions Theatre Company will close its eighth season with this tale of intrigue and violence in the 15th century English monarchy. This production is particularly timely because of the recent discovery and formal reburial of the much maligned king in Leicester, England.

 

“With a resurgence of interest in Richard, Duke of Gloucester, the usurper to the throne, we hear more and more about Richard the man and less and less about Richard, the monster,” says the play’s Director Terry Shea. “Counter-Productions’ plans to stage Richard III predates the recent media attention, but it only seems right that we are guided along by these contemporary events as we explore who Richard was and who he may not have been. An intimate, personal approach, we explore a cold, calculated killer, certainly, but also an opportunity to see things from his point of view, as broken as that may have been. Perception is everything and we are taking a chance to maybe see things a little differently with this Richard III.”

 

In the title role of Richard III is Michael Puppi. He is joined by Valerie Remillard Myette as Queen Elizabeth, Geoff Leatham as the Duke of Buckingham, Christin J. Goff as Queen Margaret, Becky Minard as the Duchess of York, Paige Barry as Lady Anne, Ted Clement as George, Duke of Clarence, Adam Florio as Edward IV, Jonathan Fisher as Henry, Earl of Richmond, John McGowan as Edward, Prince of Wales, Haley Pine as Richard, Duke of York, R. Bobby as Sir William Catesby, Bill Pett as Lord Hastings, Billy Flynn at Lord Stanley, Steven Zailskas as Sir Richard Ratcliff, Zivko Babic as the Marquis of Dorset, PJ Marchand as the Bishop of Ely, Kevin Broccoli as Sir James Tyrrel, and Matthew Parker as the Lord Mayor of London.

 

Counter-Productions Theatre Company will present this tale of political intrigue at

AS220’s Blackbox at 95 Empire Street in Providence, RI.

Upcoming Class Schedule:

April 11: Human Movement in a Modern Context with Peter DiMuro
April 25: Ballet Technique with Andrea Dawn Shelley
May 9: Modern Technique with Annie Kloppenberg
May 16: Modern technique with Meredith Lyons ** 3rd Saturday special!**

Upcoming Class Info and Teacher Bios:

April 11: Human Movement in a Modern Context with Peter DiMuro 
Peter more often teaches a “human moving” class as opposed to a “dance” class. There will be rigorous technique including floor work, center warm up and lush movement across the floor. There will also an emphasis on you, the human moving the movement. Peter’s methods to attain this humanness comes from decades of dancing and teaching and from study  with great teachers/artistic directors Gerri Houlihan, Martha Myers, Liz Lerman, Daniel Nagrin and, oddly enough, being a human himself his whole life.

April 25: Classical Ballet with Andrea Dawn Shelley
This is ballet class with a focus on the importance of core strength, healthy body alignment, strength & endurance, musicality, and artistry. From the onset of class, there is a special emphasis on the distribution of energy while articulating classical ballet technique with an expansive quality.

May 9: Modern Technique with Annie Kloppenberg
Class will focus on developing articulate, dynamic, available, and expressive bodies in a dialogue between rigorous technical practice and targeted improvisational exercises. Movement phrases play with control, abandon, and their intersection, emphasizing principles of weight, efficiency, specificity, and torque to illuminate the patterning of movement rather than the action of it alone. Movement sequences are designed to facilitate inquiry into how one might create the physical conditions which allow the body to perform as its most expressive, most dynamic instrument. We will explore virtuosity and subtle performance textures, increasing dynamic range and depth, valuing individuality in all movement. We work towards greater adaptability of our physical instruments. The simple version: we move big, sweat a lot, and have a great time!

May 16: Modern Technique with Meredith Lyons
We will create a container for versatility, abandon, athleticism and specificity. Within this class we will find the partner in ourselves, and seek to find how we can balance that amongst one another. After a cumulative warm up using elements of Barteneiff Fundamentals that move in and out of the floor along with elements of Release Technique, students will dive into the richly diverse movement style that is rooted in improvisation and contact. Movement phrases and combinations seek to inspire risk, investigation and choice as a means of an artists discovery and unique perspective. Tend to the body, push it to the max, risk falling, and say something on the way down! It is encouraged to find the artist in the student and an exchange in the room. (knee pads and layers highly encouraged!)
