Emmy - Winning Set Designer Takes Final Bow This Month At Centenary
When Bob Phillips first worked as set designer for a Centenary Stage Company (CSC) production, he did it as a favor to Carl Wallnau. Phillips met Centenary’s Artistic Director when Wallnau acted on several of Phillips’ sets, and agreed to come to Hackettstown for 2011’s Bad Dates in the inaugural season of the David and Carol Lackland Performing Arts Center, mostly out of respect for Wallnau’s abilities as a performer.
After seeing the quality of the production and cast, Phillips knew he wanted to continue working with CSC, beginning a fruitful association with the professional Actors’ Equity theater based at Centenary College. Now, Phillips is capping a long and award-winning career with one last production before he retires, as Centenary Stage Company presents the highly anticipated New Jersey premiere of The Nether by Jennifer Haley. A gripping, futuristic crime drama that unfolds at the nexus of desire, technology, and morality, it runs October 9-25. Information and tickets are available at www.centenarystageco.org.
Centenary Stage Company Celebrates Women's Voices with 2015 - 16 Season
Women's voices headline the Centenary Stage Company (CSC) 2015-16 season, with plays by Jennifer Haley, Gina Gionfriddo, newcomer Eleanor Burgess, and WPS alum Merri Biechler. The CSC season compliments a movement lead by Nan Barnett (NNPN) and the Women's Voices Theatre Festival in Washington D.C. this fall, serving to highlight the scope of plays being written by contemporary women.
Centenary Stage Company Director and Choreographer, Lea Antolini – Lid Receives Honor
Lea Antolini - Lid was invited to travel to China to teach with the acclaimed modern dance company Nai – Ni Chen in July. Professor Antolini – Lid and the Nai Ni Chen Company introduced Chinese Students from Kunming University, Hong He University and Yunnan University to techniques of classical Ballet, Contemporary Ballet, Modern Dance, Hip Hop, Jazz, Dance Composition and creative movement, yoga, dance appreciation and repertory work. The majority of the Chinese participants were dance teachers and professors that specialize in Chinese folk and Chinese classical dance, with very little exposure to the techniques introduced by Antolini and her colleagues.
The workshop was made possible by a grant from the American Chinese Embassy awarded to the Nai Ni Chen Dance Company to bring the project to China. The Nai Ni Chen Dance Company has performed in two different seasons for the Centenary Stage Company professional performing arts season, and artistic director Nai Ni Chen has taught dance intensives on two different years of Centenary students, by invitation of Antolini (who curates the professional CSC Dance Festival) and Fine Arts Department Chair Carl Wallnau.
