AS 2011 WINNER OF THE 10-MINUTE NEW PLAY RIOT CONTEST
PLUS
ANNOUNCING AN ADDITION TO OUR BACCHANAL SCHEDULE
A TOWN HALL DISCUSSION
"THE VISION THING: THE FUTURE OF THEATRE IN NEW ORLEANS"
NEW ORLEANS - Southern Rep is thrilled to announce the delightful new play HONEY MUSHROOM by Gabrielle Reisman as winner of our 10-Minute New Play Riot Contest.  Additional Finalists are: HMO by Meghann McCracken, OMAR'S PARTY by Gamal Abdel Chasten, and JINXED by Alexa Mavromatis. Also performed will be our 2010 contest winner, ROCKS & SHADOWS by Shawn Hirabayashi.
The 10-Minute Play Contest is a great opportunity for both emerging and established playwrights to see a new play up on its feet, in front of an audience.  Southern Rep is particularly proud to provide this experience to new playwrights, who gain invaluable production experience that fuels their future creative processes.
 
Southern Rep is also pleased to announce a late addition to our Bacchanal Schedule: a Town Hall discussion called "The Vision Thing: The Future of Theatre in New Orleans." A panel of local theatre leaders, including individual artists and administrators, will explore the future of theatre in New Orleans. What's our vision for where we want to go as an artistic community? What role do we want to play in the local arts scene? What makes us better New Orleans theatre-makers?  Come join what promises to be a spirited and invigorating discussion.  If you love New Orleans theatre and want to support it either as an artist or an audience member, this conversation is for you!
 
The 10-Minute Plays are a centerpiece of our Annual New Play Bacchanal, and are performed at 8 p.m. on January 20, 21, and 22nd on our mainstage at The Shops at Canal Place, 365 Canal St., 3rd Floor.

2:00pm - A reading of Ruby Prize Finalist HURT VILLAGE, by Katori Hall
This two-act play concerns the residents of a Memphis housing project, principally three generations of women living under one roof who struggle with the effects of urban blight, drug addiction, and soldiers returning from war.  At its heart it is an examination of a close-knit community, delighting in joy when they find it, and surviving tragedy when it befalls them.  The keen eye with which Hall investigates this community is equaled by the lyricism with which she renders the struggles of ordinary people.
5:00pm - Women of Color in the American Theatre: Empowerment, Tradition and Trend
A stirring discussion of how and where  women of color playwrights find artistic resonance and support in the field; where racial and feminist history intersects, influences and shapes their voices; and what promise the future holds.

LINES Ballet to Perform at NOCCA January 21-22
The magic and mystique of Arabian nights under a crescent moon sails into the Crescent City on a magic carpet this month as the New Orleans Ballet Association brings the legend of Scheherazade to the stage of the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts. Presenting this Rimsky-Korsakov classical masterpiece set to classical and modern dance is the sleek, San Francisco-based LINES Ballet, led by brilliant and innovative choreographer Alonzo King.
Famous for blending music and dance styles from many cultures, King creates gorgeous contemporary ballets that are dazzling and sophisticated. The NOCCA program includes "Scheherazade," narrator of "The 1,001 Arabian Nights," as masterfully reimagined by King. The Rimsky-Korsakov score is augmented with Eastern musical instruments by tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain. The exotic instruments add an authentic, sensuous touch to the 1,001 tales told by Queen Scheherazade to make the evil King Shahryar change his ways and fall in love with her
Included among those 1,001 tales are the timeless stories of "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp," Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," "Sinbad the Sailor" and "Harun al-Rashid," caliph of ancient Persia's Golden Age. This modern interpretation was commissioned by the principality of Monaco for the 100th anniversary celebration of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes in 2009. New Orleans is honored to be one of the first venues to present it since its premiere.
LINES Ballet will be performing onstage in the Freda Lupin Memorial Hall of the NOCCA Institute, 2800 Chartres Street, on Friday and Saturday, January 21 and 22. The Friday show starts at 8:00 p.m. and, on the 22nd , there is a 2:00 matinee and an 8:00 p.m. performance. For more information call NOBA at 504-522-0996.

Captain Louie is the story of a young boy on Halloween night who escapes into his own imagination as a means of coping with the loneliness he feels when he moves to a new neighborhood. Of its initial production, The New York Times said Captain Louie captures "the sound and rhythm of music that runs through childhood fantasies with a book that conveys the communicative magic of the original story."
The story is full of tricks and treats, and the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin). Most of all, Captain Louie is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.
