Friday Weekend Edition

"I'm a product of Ann Gregory."

- Andia Winslow, Playing Through

[Film]  Kismet and Community Bring 'Playing Through' To Life
Philip Lederer, Phil.Lederer@srqme.com

Filmmakers and their supporters gathered at Ringling College of Art & Design this week to celebrate the completion of another feature-length film shot in Sarasota and produced in partnership with the community, furthering a longtime mission to highlight the region as a potential hotspot for the film industry.

Entitled Playing Through, the film tells a semi-fictionalized account of Ann Gregory, the amateur golfer who made history in 1956 as the first African-American woman to compete in a national USGA championship. Written by Curtis Jordan, the project began not only upon his discovery of Gregory’s story, but the surprising fact that his own mother had actually played a round of golf against Gregory herself. Though Jordan’s mother was reticent to talk about the experience, he was fascinated, and that golf match became a key narrative element in a script Jordan says he wrote at least 15 times, never thinking it would be made, never thinking it was good enough.

All that changed when he met Andia Winslow. An actor who had been golfing since age 10, Winslow not only knew about Gregory, she understood the importance of her game and her accomplishments. “Black people in this country were excluded from leisure in a way that’s remarkable,” Winslow says, tracing a line from her own artistic and athletic path to the doors opened by pioneers before her. “I’m a product of Ann Gregory,” she says. And she found out that her parents knew Gregory’s kids.

“Kismet beyond kismet,” Winslow says, and the chance to talk with the Gregory family proved “informative but emotional.”

Still, there was one glaring problem in Jordan’s mind: his script. “I’m a 70-year-old white man putting words in these women’s mouths,” he says, and the dialogue was never satisfactory. Enter Winslow and her co-star Jules Rae, who both arrived in Sarasota a month early to workshop the dialogue and bring the script over the finish line. “Their input made the script,” Jordan says.

Armed with a “micro-budget” and support from the Sarasota community, including Laurel Oaks Country Club, Ringling College and Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, shooting was ready to begin.

Ultimately, Jordan credits the widespread community support as a key reason the film was able to be made at all. “[Sarasota] has taken a chance on us,” he says. “I hope that the community feels they have a level of ownership in this.”

Playing Through is currently seeking distribution.

[Performance]  FST's Family-Friendly Holiday Tradition 'Deck The Halls' Returns With an All-New Show

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is excited to bring children and their families the magic of the holiday season once more with the latest iteration of Deck the Halls. This interactive family-friendly, music-filled show celebrates everything that makes the holidays in Sarasota special and has become a holiday tradition for many families here on the Suncoast. This year’s production marks the return of the beloved Children’s Series show after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. This season, the festivities return with all-new sketches, all-new songs, and all-new memories ready for the making. Created by Sarah Durham and Caroline Saldivar, Deck the Halls begins playing on Saturdays and select Sundays starting November 27 in FST’s Bowne’s Lab.

Deck the Halls is part of a four-show subscription package. Also included in the Children’s Theatre Series subscription package is Cinderella, an all-new adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Hare & Tortoise, a whimsical retelling of the beloved Aesop fable, and The Grandma That Eats Everything & Other Winning Plays, a collection of award-winning plays written by elementary school students from around the world. 

Deck the Halls features four elves who have traveled to FST all the way from the North Pole to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah, Florida style! With all-new songs, family-friendly scenes, and a dash of audience interaction, these elves will remind audiences of the mirth and comfort of the holiday season. 

“This year, Deck the Halls highlights the best parts of the holiday rolled up in one: joy, togetherness, music, tradition, peace, and love,” said Sarah Durham, one of the co-writers of the show. “There’s humor and music and sweet reminders of what we’ve missed the past year or two. This show gives families a moment to stop, relax, and enjoy each other’s company, which can be difficult to do during such a hectic time.”

Subscriptions for all four Children’s Theatre shows are now on sale for $20 ($5 per person, per show). Single tickets are also available for $10 per ticket. Subscriptions and tickets are now on sale at 941-366-9000 or FloridaStudioTheatre.org

[Music Event]  Key Chorale's 'Sheer Grace' Performance Thanksgiving Weekend

Key Chorale, the Suncoast’s premier symphonic chorus, is excited to be back on the stage and is looking forward to a season mixed with dynamic collaborations and unique programming that have become their hallmarks under the guidance of Artistic Director Joseph Caulkins. Coming up Thanksgiving weekend is a show not to be missed! This performance will appeal to all audiences with one offering at the Sarasota Opera House. On Sunday, November 28, grace and beauty will combine in “Sheer Grace,” featuring Key Chorale and The Sarasota Ballet’s Studio Company and Trainees. The elegance and dreaminess of Eric Whitacre’s Five Hebrew Love Songs, and his setting from the beloved children’s book Good Night Moon, contrasts with the cinematic drama of Ola Gjeilo’s Dark Night of the Soul and John Rutter’s tuneful and brilliantly colorful Magnificat. Crystalline soprano Mary Wilson adds her soaring voice to a perfect afternoon of ethereal beauty. “Although neither of these works has been set to ballet yet, the first time I heard both of these pieces they just seemed so perfect for dance. Full of variety and rhythmic drive, these works will be elevated even more with the addition of dance,” says Artistic Director, Joseph Caulkins. 

The performance takes place: Sunday, November 28, 4:00 PM at the Sarasota Opera House. Tickets are $20-$55. For tickets, go to keychorale.org or call the box office at 941-552-8768.

His time spent in his second home of New Orleans, as a musicologist in Florida, and as a journeyman wanderer in Cuba, is reflected in his musical worldview. At the core is gifted songwriting, and the company Paul keeps bears it out. Bonnie Raitt, Nick Lowe, Chris Smither, John Hiatt and Cesar Rosas are among his friends and admirers. Tomorrow Sound are an elite crew. Drummer Reggie Bordeaux, New Orleans native percussionist Mac Perkins, and bassist Mike Fredrickson, throw down some of the best dance grooves in the business.Multi instrumentalist Bob Jennings adds the luxury of implying a much larger ensemble with his multi hued contributions on keys and reeds.
