Course Description:

Broadway beckons!! Well, maybe not Broadway, but the Lilac Players need you! We will be meeting the last five weeks of the fall semester to rehearse the play(s) that will be chosen within the next few months. We read the parts, so no need to memorize. We will perform after the semester ends. Experience is not necessary; you just need to be a bit of a “ham” and have a desire for fun. We always enjoy reading, bonding, and emoting.

Course Leader Bio(s)

Paula Silver

My first introduction to theater was in the 6th grade, when I directed a student-written play. In high school and college, I performed in several productions, including the musicals Sayonara and Once Upon a Mattress. In later years I joined several little theater groups in San Francisco, most notably The Opera Ring, a theater in the round, where I performed as Ado Annie in Oklahoma, as well as Milk and Honey and The Three Penny Opera. During the Spring semester of 2021, I was privileged to co-produce and direct the cast of two comedic plays: “Dinner Date” and “Check, Please”.

Roseli Weiss

I have been involved in theater since elementary school, and have been a member of several community groups, most recently The Spotlight Players in Westwood. Presently I’m an actor and board member of We Did It for You, a musical tracing the history of women’s suffrage rights. This show, currently on Zoom, has played live throughout New England, including at Faneuil Hall. In addition, I am a guide on the Freedom Trail, working for The Boston Crier, DNA, and Intercruises, where I guide tourists on bus tours throughout Boston, Lexington, and Concord. During the Spring semester of 2021, I was privileged to co-produce and direct the cast of two comedic plays: “Dinner Date” and “Check, Please”.
