ABOUT SAY IT!
The second season of SAY IT! On Stage has us exploring new ways to be creative and stay connected. No longer able to meet in person, we have congregated in Zoom rooms, experimenting with a hybrid theatre art: old-time radio plays performed on a videoconferencing app of our own technological age. The project is as intergenerational as the participants!
After months of meeting weekly to read through vintage scripts, we set to work creating a radio play of our own. Rehearsing from a living document in a virtual venue had its challenges, but neither unstable internet connections nor endless electronic versions of a monster draft document could deter us. We'll soon release our 2020 pandemic podcast production, Unearthed.
Last year, Pelham seniors worked together with E.L. Crossley Secondary School students to devise an original stage play, Over to You. The hours of hard work and happy times that resulted in two nights of performances at the MCC are documented for you on this site, in the Gallery under the Home tab.
This year, our group has been a smaller, but still magical mix of elders and youth, who poured themselves into a project that has offered companionship and artistic engagement in these socially-distanced times. We hope that our play brings listeners as much joyful entertainment as we have experienced creating it.
