2015 Up River Productions contributes $3,500 in support of NEW VOICES: PLAYWRIGHTS AND ACTORS FESTIVAL
New-Voices2
During NEW VOICES 2015, writers addressed themes from gambling addiction, to the role of women in the male-dominated fields of academia and video game design, to class warfare in upscale New England and gritty New York.

More than 50 people were involved as writers, directors, performers, and technical theatre artists, and 200 people attended the performances.

A Message from Director of Education Hester Kamin.

“An email cannot suffice to thank Up River Productions for what NEW VOICES does for the participants, the Playhouse, and the community. From artists who have never before seen their work on stage to senior citizens working alongside teens, NEW VOICES has a profound impact on the participants and a ripple effect on our region. One aspect of NEW VOICES that greatly pleased us was the age range: artists from 14 -80 years old were involved. We feel that NEW VOICES creates bridges between generations and between people from different walks of life, and that it opens our eyes to new perspectives. We are so very grateful to have the opportunity to bring this group together to learn, create, work, laugh, and have the profoundly rewarding experience of being part of something that brings new art into the world through a collaborative effort.
Thank you so very much.”

2015 Up River Productions donates $500 to Girlspeak


Girlspeak is an educational program in which female teens work with teaching artists to create and perform an original play about the issues they face in their lives. In spring 2015, the students of Girlspeak performed in the Lambertville Hall Sanctuary and addressed the issues of competitiveness, abusive relationships, and bullying. The program will take place again from September 2015 – March 2016.

 


2014 Up River Productions contributes $2500 in support of NEW VOICES: PLAYWRIGHTS AND ACTORS FESTIVAL


With a theme of diversity, emerging playwrights develop a 10-minute play through an intensive workshop, are mentored through the collaborative process of working with actors and a director, then see their words come to life on the Bucks County Playhouse stage.

The writers immediately took to the theme of diversity. Content included transgender characters, Latino culture in America in the 1980’s, and senior citizens finding love in unexpected places. Other works included “Atheist Jew,” about a young Jewish woman struggling with her culture, “Homeschooled,” a comic piece about a woman with an unusual upbringing trying to make sense of the social world, and “Dressing Room,” the story of a young man coming out as gay to his theatre friends, who do not react in the accepting way that he had hoped.

A portion of the contribution provided scholarships to three talented young writers.
