Floyd Collins

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sun, August 26-September 4Friday - Saturday 8PM, Sunday 2PM

Based on the true story.  In 1925, while chasing a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction, Floyd Collins himself becomes the attraction when he gets trapped 200 feet underground.  Alone but for sporadic contact with the outside world, Floyd fights for his sanity and ultimately his life as the rescue effort above explodes into America’s first genuine media circus.

This haunting musical boasts a distinguished score as memorable as it is engaging, as it tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.

CORNINGWORKS remains – A One Woman Show

Presented by CORNINGWORKS and The New Hazlett Theater

Wed-Sun, September 7-11Wednesday 7PM, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8PM, Sunday Matinee 2PM

“If you can’t get rid of the family skeleton,  you might as well make it dance.” – George Bernard Shaw

REMAINS is full of imagination and pathos.  Half-filled wine glasses, a loved one’s scent left behind in a coat, discovered messages, the memory of family dinners past.  Through projected and spoken text, physical acuity, and imaginative theater techniques, this multi-disciplinary, layered dancetheater work journeys through tangible and provocative imagery. REMAINS touches upon universal emotional and tells its story with poignant humor, honesty, and nuance.

In 2013, REMAINS was critically hailed as “a tour de force.” CORNINGWORKS has enriched the original with additional moves, scenery, lighting, and costumes.

Choreographed and performed by Beth Corning and created in collaboration with and directed by, Tony Award-winning Dominique Serrand.  Costumes by Sonya Berlovitz.  Lighting by Iain Court with a set design by Britton Mauk.

Thrival Keynote Talk: Collision Course

Presented by Thrival

Tuesday, September 20

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, popularly known as CTE, has shaken the sports world to its core, most notably the National Football League and its penchant for offering fans jarring hits and sensational collisions every Sunday from September through February. Dr. Bennet Omalu discovered CTE in Pittsburgh, and has since become a global phenomena, with the recent film Concussion documenting his experience going toe to toe with the NFL — an organization that fiercely disputed his findings and has found itself at the heart of the controversy. Dozens of football players and other athletes have been diagnosed, multiple have tragically taken their own lives, and numerous analysts believe this condition is not isolated, but an epidemic.

THE SPEAKERS:

Following Dr. Omalu’s remarks, Jeanne Marie Laskas, author of Concussion and writer of the screenplay for the feature film starring Will Smith, will join the conversation for a deeper dive into the nature of courage, accountability, and the opportunity to tell the story for those who have lost the ability to tell it for themselves during a fireside chat and audience Q&A.

Thrival Keynote Talk: The American Identity

Presented by Thrival

Wednesday, September 21

There is no shortage of opinion when it comes to defining the current social and political climate in America. Conversations about where we are going and who we are as Americans have ventured to the extreme. Factor in a presidential election that leaves many looking toward November with, at a minimum, a sense of uncertainty, and it is not a stretch to say our country is having an identity crisis.

THE SPEAKERS:

Meghan McCain is the host of the nationally syndicated radio show, “America Now” which is part of the iHeartRadio/Premiere Network radio family. She is also a regular contributor to Fox News. A powerful role model for women and Republicans alike, McCain passionately discusses women’s issues, social issues, and marriage equality.

Eugene Robinson uses his twice-weekly column in The Washington Post to pick American society apart and then put it back together again in unexpected and revelatory new ways. To do this job of demolition and reassembly, Robinson relies on a large and varied tool kit: energy, curiosity, elegant writing and the wide-ranging experience of a life that took him from childhood in the segregated South—on what they called the “colored” side of the tracks—to the heights of American journalism. His remarkable story-telling ability has won him wide acclaim, most notably as the winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for his commentary on the 2008 presidential race that resulted in the election of America’s first African-American
president.

Thrival Keynote Talk: Straight Outta My Parent’s Basement

Presented by Thrival

Thursday, September 22

Most 18-year-old college sophomores are thinking about final exams, summer vacation, and dorm room shenanigans. But before 18-year-old Ann (Andini) Makosinski ever stepped into a college classroom, she had won the Google Science Fair, garnered awards at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, was featured in TIME, and appeared on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon — twice. Instead of couching herself in the typical definitions of “entrepreneur” or “inventor,” Ann has coined a term for herself: “differentist.”But sometimes, world-changing ideas come out of a suburban home basement turned invention lab. Join Ann as she explains what it’s like to be a differentist in a world that’s constantly redesigning and reimagining itself, and charting new courses.

THE SPEAKER:

While still in high school, Ann created the “Hollow Flashlight,” which was recognized with several award at the 2013 Canade-Wide Science Fair, won the 2013 Google Science Fair, and won several awards at the 2014 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

Makosinki appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon twice on the GE “Fallonventions” segment to demonstrate her inventions. In 2014, she was named one of TIME Magazine’s “30 Under 30.” As of October 2015, Makosinski has been featured as the global ambassador for the Uniqlo Fleece produce line that highlights the similar harvesting of thermal energy in the Uniqlo produce and the “Hollow Flashlight.” She is currently a second year student at the University of British Columbia.

Diary of a Madman and Poe’s Last Night

Nikolai Gogol’s farcical short story follows the format of a diary to chronicle the descent of the protagonist, Poprishchin, into insanity.

In Poe’s Last Night, David Crawford portrays Poe in his final dying hours on the streets of Baltimore as he is pursued by mysterious assailants both without and within his feverish brain.

Cole Hoyer-Winfield’s Midnight in Molina

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, October 208PM

Life is made up of cycles: Days and nights replay, our mistakes repeat, and plants grow and die outside in the garden. It’s the same story just about anywhere you go, unless that is, you’re in Molina and midnight is drawing near…

Through hand-drawn projections, shadow puppetry, and live music, Midnight in Molina transports viewers to a mystical realm where the earth unravels and dreams come to life — a moonlit town where nothing is what it seems.

Redemption Sons is hope.  It is change.  It is a parent’s soul split in two and fused back together again.  An African American mother from Louisiana and a Boricua father from the South Bronx engage in an experimental call and response “duologue” as they weave a story of memory, healing, and empowerment.

Jason is an educator, author, interdisciplinary theater artist, and father of three. As a South Bronx Puerto Rican writer focusing on lived experience, notions of home, and the power of voice, Jason embodies a voice that has been historically silenced and rendered invisible.
