“All the Film’s a Stage” is the subject of a presentation by Rick Winston at the Unadilla Theatre in East Calais on Monday, August 15 at 7:30 p.m. The talk, featuring 15 clips, will show how the world of the theater has been portrayed in the movies.
“When Unadilla director Bill Blachly approached me to do a film event at the theater, this came to mind as an ideal subject,” says Winston, who was the co-founder of Montpelier’s Savoy Theater. Life backstage has long been fodder for both comedies and dramas, depicting grueling rehearsals, opening-night jitters and outsize personalities.
The film clips will illustrate what goes into a theater production, and will include such classics as All About Eve, Children of Paradise, Topsy Turvey and The Dresser.
Admission is free, though donations are gratefully accepted. For more information, call 454-7103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
