September 2019 – May 2020
Freestyle Rep’s award winning show, Theatresports™, has been a part of the Gallery Players family programming since 2006. Led by Laura Livingston and Mike Durkin (teaching artists, P.S. 321, P.S. 124, P.S. 107 Brooklyn, P.S. 212 Midtown West & Spoke the Hub), a zany ensemble of professional actors presents improvisational theatre as a competitive sport. The audience gives suggestions, sometimes performs with the company on stage, and decides the outcome of the game. It’s a different show every month and fun for all ages.
December 2019 – June 2020
In January 2019 Gallery partnered with Brooklyn-based Good Idea Bears to present original children’s theater that invites and encourages participation from the audience. After wildly successful productions of Snow White and the Battle for Pittsburgh and The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, this season we are thrilled to present The Great Christmas Tree in December, Jack and the Beanstalk: Beanman’s Revenge in February and March, and Cinderella, or a Godmother’s Tale in May and June.
July – August 2020
In the summer of 2005, Gallery Players began the Peanut Gallery, a musical theater performance workshop for kids and teens. Through the Peanut Gallery program, Gallery is actively pursuing its mission to instill the love of theater in future generations, and developing strong relationships with local schools, parents, and children. Taught by professional theater artists, the Peanut Gallery is devoted to musical theater, personal expression, and self-confidence. Children learn the basics of singing and dancing, as well as what it means to participate and contribute to a group. Through storytelling, theater games, art projects and performance, and with the guidance of our talented instructors, kids will not only have fun but will increase their own expressiveness and positive self-image.
