Announcing the Fall 2016 Antaeus Academy!

We may not be able to move into our new home for another couple of months, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down at Antaeus. We’re excited to announce our Fall Academy classes, and it’s a roster that really complements our upcoming season. If you can’t wait to see Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, come study the work of Tennessee Williams. If you’re looking forward to Nambi E. Kelley’s adaptation of Native Son, delve into the work of other playwrights from the Kilroys’ annual List. And it wouldn’t be the Antaeus Academy without some Shakespeare classes, to get you ready for Shakespeare’s classic comedy As You Like It.

Or if you’re not excited about any of those, there’s George Bernard Shaw, the Comedy of Manners, and a Voice class – there’s something for everyone!

Emily Chase – Tennessee Williams: Demons & Angels
Mondays, 11am-3pm – 8 weeks (10/17 thru 12/5 or 12/12)

Armin Shimerman – Shaw Intensive: Scene Study
Mondays, 7-11pm – 8 weeks (10/17 thru 12/5 or 12/12)

A Glendale Construction Update

 
Week three of construction and things are moving quickly in Glendale!

Our contractor and his team have been busy with demolition over the past two weeks. With all of the old temporary walls gone, the space feels so much bigger. Here’s a video so you can see for yourself:

This week they are starting to remove the concrete inside the main stage and black box so we can prepare for installing our sprung floors. As always, thank you for being part of the Antaeus family during this exciting time and for your incredible support!

Construction is Underway

 

Today is the day!

After years of planning, lots of amazing support from our family and friends, numerous meetings with our architect, and various conversations with our contractor, we started construction at 110 E. Broadway in Glendale today. This morning I stopped by the space and was beyond excited to see our contractor with his team starting to prep for demolition. Just having people in the space, makes it feel more alive, more like home!

It’s a very exciting time at Antaeus that has been long in the making. To be honest, a time that couldn’t come sooner as I listen to both Hedda Gabler rehearsals and an Academy class through the wall of my office in North Hollywood while I write. We need more space so we can continue the amazing things happening at Antaeus. In just a few short months our new home will be ready so we can continue the impactful work we do both on and off our stages – get ready for more productions, readings, Academy classes, and arts education programming.

We continue to be inspired by our ever-growing community of passionate supporters who have made this day possible. Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey!

Play On!
