Symposium: Transformative Stages – Sea Change in Welles and Melville
As in past summers, the 2014 Stanford Repertory Theater's summer festival includes a community symposium, Saturday August 2, 9:30 am to 5 pm, in Pigott Theater, Memorial Auditorium. Our keynote speaker is Professor Steve Vineberg, film critic for The Three Penny Review and Critics at Large, and the author of several books on American cinema.
Other symposium contributors include Stanford emeriti professors Alice Rayner and William Eddelman (Theater and Performance Studies), Professor Samuel Otter (Department of English, UC Berkeley), SRT Artistic Director Rush Rehm, and SRT company members Rod Gnapp, Peter Ruocco, Courtney Walsh, and Tom Freeland.
The symposium also features a live performance of Now You See It, Now You Don’t (written by Laurence Maslon and starring Harry Ford as a young Orson Welles), and scenes from the dramatic adaptation of Melville’s Billy Budd. We begin the day with morning coffee and muffins, break for a delicious catered lunch (of Wellesian proportions!), and recharge the afternoon with tea and cookies
