Riverona Indiegogo Campaign
Riverona has been our passion and obsession for years. Episode 1: Two Households premiered to rave reviews at Common Ground Festival 6. It was so well received we had no choice but to remount our production soon afterward. Episode 2: Yonder Window Breaks will have a workshop performance at Common Ground 7 in November but we need help to bring the full four episode series to life.
Your contribution will help us bring the drama of Riverona to the stage. Full Circle Theatre has always worked on a shoestring budget. Theatre is expensive, and we want to ensure our talented cast, devoted crew, and passionate audience experience all the wonders that the little big town of Riverona has to offer.
Do you love Shakespeare? Do you also love (or love to hate) Riverdale? Finally, how about how the teenagers on every teen drama tv show are essentially played by 30 year olds? (And their parents are played by 35 year olds?)
Y’all. Have we got the project for you!
Riverona will be a 4 “episode” theatrical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, all done up in a teen drama hat. The script seamlessly blends original text with contemporary wit, guaranteed to make you cry laughing. And maybe cry for real. Full Circle Theatre is dissecting tropes and exploring text the most fun way we can.
Full Circle Theatre is a Calgary-based collective of artists who first came together in 2010. We are committed to the celebration of women in theatre. As a group, we produce classical works and write new plays – we just want to create! We strive to serve as a venue for young artists to discover their voice through movement and text, playing great roles and creating greater ones in an inclusive and open atmosphere.
