SFA’s School of Theatre opens their SummerStage Festival today with “Women Who Weave,” a story exploring what it means to be brave and heroic by looking to the tales of Greek mythology. The Fates take young Atalanta on a journey by introducing her to various women from mythology who out-smarted their foes.
Our intern Bee had the chance to photograph the rehearsal, and said, “I think that the play showed a lot of character and I really enjoyed how funny and creative it was. I like that the girls and guys had different roles every time the scenes changed. I really recommend seeing it when you can because it is honestly such a vibe.”
SFA’s SummerStage series was created with the entire family in mind. The plays offer families and children affordable access to quality plays in a relaxed and approachable atmosphere. In fact, this year they are even offering sensory-friendly performances on June 6th and 8th at 10am, and July 7th at 6:30pm. The SummerStage series will run from June 23 – July 8, and includes “Women Who Weave” and “The Jungle Book Kids.” Learn more about “Women Who Weave” and SFA’s SummerStage Festival here.
