Local Movie Theater Streams Live Performances

Local Movie Theatre Streams Live PerformancesMouth of Amelia invites you to a streaming of live performances of operas and ballets in our own hometown!

Presented by Carmike Amelia Island 7 Theater, you can now view these amazing famous ballet and opera companies from Europe!

WHEN: May 15, 2012 at 7:00 PM. (The next showing… see below.)

WHERE: Carmike Amelia Island 7 Movie Theatre, 14th and Lime, Fernandnina Beach, Florida.

WHAT: A loyal Mouth Reader reports: “I spent a most pleasant Sunday watching the Bolshoi dance The Bright Stream at our local Carmike theatre. There were all of four of us in the audience and we kept wondering to each other and the manager about why more people aren’t taking advantage of this remarkable opportunity. This is not a well-known ballet, but contained wonderful classical dancing along with the funniest comic ballet I have ever seen. We were laughing out loud at the dog riding a bicycle and the male dancer as Giselle (even en pointe). The dog’s costume was made of real fur. I could tell because that is how clearly you can see. So if you are thinking this is like watching on TV, it is not. It is like being at the Bolshoi or Royal Opera House in a seat you could never afford. Our cinema is one of only forty in the U.S. that carries this series of performances by top companies live with an encore showing… I cannot believe that there are only a handful of people on Amelia who appreciate opera and classical ballet. We need to get the word out and more people trying it or we won’t have it. If you have any interest, you owe it to yourself to go to just one performance. It is amazing how fulfilling a great musical performance can be.”

COMING FUTURE ATTRACTIONS:

The Royal Ballet will be dancing La Fille Mal Gardee (Live: 5/16/2012, 2:30pm; Encore – 5/29/2012, 7:00pm

The Bolshoi again with Raymonda (Live: 6/24/2012, 11:00am; Encore – 4:30pm & 7/10/2012, 7:00pm).

A Streetcar Named Desire at Amelia Community Theatre

A Streetcar Named Desite at Amelia Community TheatrePictured from left to right: Toni D’Amico, Rodney Kluessendorf, Jennifer Johnston, Doug McDowell, Jennifer McCarthy, Joe Parker. Photo by Bill Raser.

Perhaps no other play captures the contradictions of the South as well as Tennessee Williams’s Pulitzer-prize winning drama, A Streetcar Named Desire . Set in New Orleans after the Second World War, this New York Drama Critics Best Play explores the warring factions of that transitional period—the genteel Old South versus a rising urban-industrial working class, and the fluctuating boundaries between the refined and the primitive, fantasy and reality, romance and sexuality, kindness and cruelty. These themes play out during an extended visit by fallen southern belle Blanche DuBois to her sister, Stella, in which Blanche’s fragile delusions of grandeur are eventually shattered by her earthy, pragmatic brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski.

The play is the eighth Amelia Community Theatre production directed by Marylee Long, a past president of the ACT board. A longtime teacher of English, she holds a bachelor’s degree in theater arts and master’s degree in English literature.

The cast features, among others, well-known local actors Joe Parker (Stanley Kowalski), Doug McDowell (Harold “Mitch” Mitchell), and Toni D’Amico (Eunice Hubbell), as well as two of the Kit Kat Girls from last season’s stunning Cabaret Jennifer Johnston (Blanche DuBois) and Jennifer McCarthy (Stella Kowalski).

Performances take place in Amelia Community Theatre’s main-stage theater at 207 Cedar Street at 8 p.m. on April 12-14, 19-21, and 26–28, and 2 p.m. on April 22. (The Opening night party will be held April 12th at 7 p.m.)

Purchase tickets ($20 adult, $10 student) online at www.ameliacommunitytheatre.org, or beginning March 29, call the box office from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, at 904-261-6749; the box office also opens 90 minutes before curtain.

Performances of Ballet and Opera from Europe Shown at Cinema 7

Performances of Ballet and Opera from Europe Shown at Cinema 7Mouth of Amelia has sent word of live, streaming performances of ballet and opera that are being shown at our own Carmike Amelia Island Cinema 7 movie theater.

The next feature is Le Corsaire (The Bolshoi Ballet); with a encore performance on 3/20/12, at 7:00 PM.

WHEN: Please see Schedule of Events below!

WHERE: Carmike 7 Cinema, 1132 South 14th Street in Fernandina Beach, Florida

WHAT: This is in the “Who Knew” department! It is a little known fact that ballets and operas are streamed in live from La Scala, Bolshoi Theatre, Royal Opera House, etc. to our local theatre, Carmike. The showings are usually here at 11am (from Russia) or 2pm (from London). They’re recorded during streaming and shown again locally once or twice as Encores. The performances often last over three hours because, being live, they include intermissions. Usually, the intermissions show views of the event’s theatre and sometimes interviews with principals, costumers or conductors — always translated into English or with English captions. Performances always include English captions.

A loyal Mouth reader writes, “The sound system at the theatre is wonderful and with cameras streaming in the live performances from different angles, even overhead views and closeups, it’s pure eye candy! We see far more than the audience at the event could possibly see from any seat. We’ve become avid ballet fans as a result. Although we’ve always loved opera, this venue brings it up close and personal!”

We are so lucky to have this program right here on our little island since not all Carmike theatres are participating. You might subscribe to info@emergingpictures.com for “Ballet in Cinema” and “Opera in Cinema” to get notices about upcoming events, but the notices come in just a few days in advance of the event which only helps as a reminder. However, when you attend a performance, you receive a good program that provides performance details, including a synopsis, and lists upcoming events on the last page so that you can schedule for them further in advance.

My spies tell me that there are always seats available. Music lovers should patronize these showings to encourage Carmike to continue to subscribe to this series!

Le Corsaire, from the Bolshoi Ballet

In the Bolshoi Ballet’s new staging of Le Corsaire, Petipa’s original choreography is revived and refreshed by Alexei Ratmansky and Yuri Burlaka to breathe new life into this production. The ballet follows Medora, a young Greek girl, and Conrad, a dashing pirate, as they journey through a tapestry of dramatic events, culminating in a shipwreck considered to be one of ballet’s most dazzling spectacles. Starring Svetlana Lunkina, Ruslan Skvortsov, Andrei Merkuriev & Nina Kaptsova.

“The final scene has one scenic masterstroke after another. Moonlight upon the Mediterranean, then the corsairs’ ship… filling most of the stage with characters on board, trumped by thunder, lightning, storm, rising waves, and the boat splitting before our eyes: the kind of special effect that in recent decades has belonged to film alone.” – The New York Times

“…fairly bursts with dazzling ingredients… the final ocean scene is Kaminsky’s crowning glory.” – Washington Post

COST: Tickets are usually $20 for a ballet and $25 for an opera

Into the Woods Opens at Amelia Community Theatre

Into the Woods Opens at Amelia Community TheatreInto the Woods is opening at the Amelia community Theatre with an opening night party at 7:00 PM on February 9, 2012.

Into the Woods is a highly acclaimed musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. This sophisticated look at fairy tales is very much in keeping with the popularity of such new TV shows as Once upon a Time and Grimm. It’s also going to be made into a film. The spellbinding, Tony Award–winning play, transports us to an enchanted world rich with romance, laughter, and unexpected consequences. Familiar fairy tales get a new twist as we learn what happens after “happily ever after.” It’s a visual and musical delight that lingers long after the storybooks close. Don’t miss it!

Directed by Jill Dillingham, Jayne Jeney is Producer and Jackie Eaton is Stage Manager. Carey Dresser, director of last season’s highly successful Cabaret, will be playing the Wolf and also serving as choreographer. Paige Markwell, who played the lead in The Diary of Anne Frank, will be appearing as Cinderella.

The set is a work of art, designed and hand-painted by Artist Alan Robertson and a team of painters over a period of nine months, a true labor of love!

Amelia Community Theatre is located at 207 Cedar Street in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

Tickets are $2000 for adults, and $10.00 for students in grades K–12, online at www.ameliacommunitytheatre.org, or call the box office from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Thursday through Saturday, at 904-261-6749.

8:00 PM on February 9, 10, 11; 16, 17, 18; and 23, 24, and 25; and 2:00 PM on February 19, 2012.

Amelia Community Theatre Presents A Christmas Story [Video]

Amelia Community Theatre Presents A Christmas Story [Video]Come to the Amelia Community Theatre in December and be transported to a Northern Indiana Christmas where young Ralphie Parker dreams of finding a Red Ryder BB-Gun under the Christmas Tree. First, however, he must overcome unsympathetic authorities who insist, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

The talented and skillfully clever Toni D’Amico directs a large cast through alleyway bullies, freezing flagpoles, a major award, and the Parker’s neighbor’s menacing dogs. Her experience unwraps a delightfully charming package for the audience, a must-see production that will put you into the holiday spirit.

Jonathan Maurer

Ralphie’s quest for the “Official, Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass and this thing which tells time built right into the stock,” is fast paced and captivating.

The cast includes 11 children, all professional and believable. Corey Oliver’s expressions as the young Ralphie are priceless, and Elizabeth Eberwine as Esther Jane (who has a crush on Ralphie) is just too cute.

Impressive is Devin Hughes’ performance as the grown up Ralph who talks directly to the audience, narrating the entire play with believable nostalgia.

Here is an astonishing statistic found on the ACT website:

“More than 17 million, or almost one in four, American children are at risk of hunger. In 2010,14.5% percent of households (17.2 million households) were food insecure. In 2010, 5.6 million households in the U.S. accessed emergency food from a food pantry one or more times. Florida ranks in the top nine states in America with a higher than national average household food insecurity.”
