ADULT EDUCATION IS BACK
Evening Class- MAKE A SCENE AT BETH AMI
Rabbi Danzig helps us dramatize Biblical characters
TUESDAY evenings, 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Beth Ami
Four sessions, starting on November 12;
(Then November 19, 26, and December 3.)
A View From The Stage: This course explores how biblical heroes and myths evolved onto the theater stage. John Milton (17th c), auto-biographically in “Samson Agonistes.” In the 18th century, Haydn orchestrates the first chapter of Genesis in his oratorio, “The Creation.” In the 20th century, Genesis is treated by Arthur Miller in his play “The Creation of the World and Other Business”; Noah is the pathetic hero in Clifford Odets’ “The Flowering Peach”; in “J.B.,” Archibald MacLeish develops a contrasting study to the biblical Job. The selection of the plays will be presented as reader’s theater. Students will be asked to volunteer to do the dramatic readings, coached by Rabbi Danzig.
These classes are free of charge. Come to class for more information!
