hangar1The Hangar Theatre Company continues its 46th season with a virtual reimagined take on the classic story, Sense and Sensibility. This adaptation by Kate Hamill runs virtually at 7:30 PM EDT on Saturday, August 8th. It will be directed by Hangar's Shirley Serotsky. Hamill is a Lansing native and Ithaca College/Hangar alumna, and is one of the top five most-produced playwrights in the nation. Hangar patrons will recognize her writing from past productions Pride and Prejudice (2018) and Little Women (2019).

Sense and Sensibility is Kate Hamill's bold, boisterous, and timely take on Jane Austen's classic novel. The satirical novel became a classic after being published anonymously in three volumes in 1811. It offered a vivid depiction of 19th-century middle-class life, following the romantic relationships of sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. The play is written through a modern lens, but stays true to the source material and original time period. In this loving and innovative adaptation, you'll find new life in these familiar characters.

Civic Ensemble welcomes Julia Taylor as the new Executive Director, and launches the new Artistic Ensemble, a group of actors, directors, educators, and administrators who will steer the artistic vision of the company into the next chapter.  This transition marks a significant moment at Civic Ensemble as leadership shifts from two of the company's co-founders, Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr. and Sarah K. Chalmers, who have led the company since 2012.

Chalmers says, "It's an exciting time for Civic Ensemble. While I am going to miss the people, and the programs we've created here, I am looking forward to seeing how Civic grows under new leadership. The founding visions and values remain intact and are being carried forward and built on as Godfrey and I make way for what's next."
