"It is a stunning and beautiful theater that seats 200 people, a real miracle come true. "

- Nate Jacobs, Founder and Artistic Director, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe.

[Arts & Entertainment]  Westcoast Black Theatre Troupes Presents Black Nativity
Dylan Campbell, dylan@srqme.com

With previews beginning on November 30th and opening night occurring on December 3rd, you can catch the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s production of Black Nativity, based upon the novel from renowned poet Langston Hughes. The production, which was first performed off-Broadway in 1961 and was made into a 2013 film of the same name, follows the traditional nativity story, replete with gospel and blues versions of classic Christmas carols that are paired with excerpts of Hughes’ poetry.

Black Nativity is a historic, classic show that’s typically presented by the black theater. Just like various traditional christmas productions such as The Nutcracker and Hallelujah Chorus, Langston Hughes wanted to create an afro-centric retelling of the nativity story from the African American perspective using a lot of his poetry, biblical scripture, and dance,” says Nate Jacobs, founder and artistic director of the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe and director of this year’s production. “Since the mid 1950s black theater institutions have incorporated the production into their repertoire. Our patrons love Black Nativity, it has become a true favorite at this institution, every year we bring together new singers and dancers and try to keep this traditional legacy alive.”

While this year will mark the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s fourth production of Black Nativity, having had sold-out runs in 2014, 2016, and 2018, it will be the first time that it’s performed on their renovated Donnelly Stage. “It’s a stunning and beautiful theater that seats 200 people, a real miracle come true. We purchased the building some years ago and through a capital campaign we can attack each production with a new level of professionalism,” says Jacobs. “We have professional seating, a small-fly system, professional stage manager and sound tech booths, in addition to a second floor orchestra pit and a wonderful costume department.”

[Arts & Entertainment]  Lewis Black: Off the Rails Tour Coming to the Van Wezel

Grammy® Award winning stand-up comedian Lewis Black brings his Off the Rails Tour to the Van Wezel on Sunday, December 11, 2022 at 7 p.m. Tickets on sale now. Black is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as a stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights annually, to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City. His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world. Lewis Black does a live streaming show called The Rant is Due at the end of each of his stand-up performances. This show is written by the audience watching throughout the world and also by the audience in the area of each show. With so much to get off their chests, people use Lewis’ platform to “rant” about what is on their minds. These rants are now also available on his podcast, Lewis Black's Rantcast. Tickets are $42-$87 and can be purchased at www.VanWezel.org, by calling the box office at 941-263-6799 or by visiting the box office Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Groups of 10 or more should contact 941-263-6726.

The Out-of-Door Academy College Counseling Office is pleased to announce that seniors Sloan Arslaner, Jack Bancroft, Natalie Carrión, and Victoria Woodruff have been named as 2023 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists, while Luke Pfahler, Daniel Szor, and Thomas Vicente have been named Commended Scholars.

Each year, more than 1.6 million students in the U.S. sit for the PSAT 11. Of that total, approximately 34,000 are named as Commended Scholars on the basis of a nationally applied selection index score. These honors are a testament to student mastery of the PSAT as well as focus and determination in academic pursuits.

“To be recognized as a National Merit Semifinalist is a huge honor for students,” said Director of College Counseling Ms. Lisa Clay. “This achievement represents our students’ years of hard work and dedication to learning.”

The Out-of-Door Academy’s five-year college counseling process provides students thorough preparation for the college application process beginning in eighth grade. Early exposure to standardized testing helps students become more comfortable taking the test. In addition, many students choose to utilize a wealth of preparation materials. Every rising junior and senior at Out-of-Door is eligible for free, customized tutoring during the summer months. These strategies have yielded outstanding results for these dedicated students, resulting in consecutive record high test scores by recent graduating classes.

Out-of-Door is pleased with the overall increases in average test scores. Congratulations to the Class of 2023 for their continued academic achievements!

[SOON]  : The Ringling - A Decade of Collecting , October 22 – January 22, Varied

A Decade of Collecting brings together a survey of artworks acquired for the permanent collection over the past eleven years. As the State Art Museum of Florida and a division of Florida State University, The Ringling’s collections are constantly expanding to provide our state and local community with access to current contemporary works in all media and thoughtful additions to our historic collections. Though the core of the collection has always been the works acquired by John and Mable Ringling, the museum’s holdings have been expanding ever since the State of Florida took full possession of the bequest in 1946. In the early years, these additions were mainly in pre-1800 European art and circus-related material, but over the second half of the 20th century, directors and curators also began acquiring works by modern and contemporary artists. A Decade of Collecting presents a unique snapshot of how The Ringling’s collection continues to evolve, allowing us to tell new stories of the past, present, and future.
