Theatre Conservatory presents Chekhov’s “The Seagull”
“The Seagull” is the story of artists and unrequited loved, and takes place in 19th Century Russia on the grand estate on the shores of a lake. The plot and characters of this play were drawn upon from Chekhov’s own life experience as an artist and a physician.
Sam Robinson, Theatre Conservatory teacher writes “harkening back to Greek tragedy, much of the play’s key conflicts take place off stage. Characters use language that skirts around the issues at hand, requiring actors to develop and use subtext; text that is not spoken aloud, to convey their true thoughts.” The students preformed this classic and dramatic play excellently, showing their talents in acting, set design, lighting design, costume design and sound design. Running through the weekend, the show brought many to Pike Auditorium to enjoy the classic by the Russian playwright.
