Photo/Ann Marley wareTheatre.org or by calling the Box Office at 302-594-1100. A French country girl finds herself on trial for her life after the nation’s rulers become threatened by her influence and popularity. With mysterious visions of saints inspiring her to help recover France from English domination, she paves the way for victory. Starring Clare O’Malley from “Hetty Feather” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” this epic, transcendent story brings renewed life to one of history’s greatest heroines as she pushes the boundaries of a society dominated by political and religious forces. Chelsea Marcantel’s adaptation is sure to inspire girls and women of any age. Marcantel says that she grew up watching and reading stories without female heroes. It wasn’t until she was older and discovered the stories of female saints that she discovered strong-willed women that she could look up to. Inspired by their stories, she has rewritten this narrative. Her adaptation condenses George Bernard Shaw’s original, while giving more of a voice to the women of the story, especially Joan. Executive Director, Bud Martin, has commissioned this adaptation and says that the theSee New Adaptation of Shaw’s “Saint Joan” at Delaware Theatre Co. page 3

New Adaptation of Shaw’s “Saint Joan” at Delaware Theatre Co. Continued from front page

atre is thrilled to bring a classic to the company through Marcantel’s new adaptation. He says, “Saint Joan is more relevant today than we might imagine. The original Shaw play has a huge cast and deals with many male influences. I wanted to make this play more about Joan and what drives her as well as her fears and doubts. The smaller cast and narrower focus makes it a powerful play with more energy, exciting movement, and an impactful message. Because of the new script, the show has the ability to be more theatrical in its look and feel.” Clare O’Malley leads the production as Joan of Arc herself. O’Malley, a DTC audience favorite, first came to Martin’s attention when he held auditions for “Hetty Feather.” He said, “I think that Clare is magical when she is on stage, and when I was thinking about picking a classic for this season, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to bring her back.” In addition to O’Malley, the cast features Philadelphia powerhouses including Mary Martello as Lady Warwick; Tai Verley as Saint Catherine; Mary Tuomanen as Saint Margaret; Dan Kern as Archbishop and the Inquisitor; Sean Michael Bradley who will serve as the show’s Fight Choreographer in addition to playing Poulengey, Dunois, and Ladvenu; Charlie DelMarcelle as Baudricourt, Bluebeard, and Cauchon; and Michael Doherty as Charles the Dauphin, Stogumber, and D’Estivet. The design team is comprised of Colin McIlvaine (Scenic Designer,) Millie Hiibel (Costume Designer,) Thom Weaver (Lighting Designer,) Michael Kiley (Sound Designer,) and Nick Hussong (Projection Designer.) Performances are held on Delaware Theatre Company’s stage, located at 200 Water Street in Wilmington, DE, just feet from the beautiful Riverfront. “Saint Joan” runs February 6 - 24, 2019.

tate Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will hold her 80th Town Hall meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 26 at Cathedral Village, 600 E. Cathedral Road, 19128. At this “Pam Unplugged” gathering, DeLissio said, “I look forward to sharing with constituents my involvement over the past few months to change the House Rules, which is an underlying reason for much of the unfinished business in Harrisburg. The House Rules also contribute to how the ‘cards’ end up stacked not in favor of citizens, but in favor of special interest groups with significant financial influence. “As a result of important unfinished business session after session, there has been a focused effort to ensure that the Pennsylvania House Rules provide a fair and square opportunity for legislation such as redistricting reform and updating and improving our voting systems and campaign finance reform, etc. to reach the governor’s desk,” DeLissio said. Pennsylvania is ranked very low when it comes to legislative fairness. “This town hall will be an opportunity for constituents to hear how state government works in reality, instead of in theory, and what some of us are doing to instill oversight and change. Our goal is a fair and square government in 2019-2020,” DeLissio said. DeLissio’s stated goals for her Town Halls include informing constituents about how the legislative process works. “The more citizens understand about the process, the better they can participate and advocate. It is always exciting to share my experience of how the process works, or in some cases does not work.” More information can be obtained by calling DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726 or visiting www.pahouse.com/DeLissio.

Barber and Gian Carlo Menotti. Graham’s groundbreaking style grew from her experimentation with the elemental movements of contraction and release. By focusing on the basic activities of the human form, she enlivened the body with raw, electric emotion. The sharp, angular and direct movements of her technique were a dramatic departure from the predominant style of the time. The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a world leader in the development of contemporary dance since its founding in 1926. Today, under the direction of Artistic Director Janet Eilber, the Company is embracing a new programming vision that showcases masterpieces by Graham alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists. With programs that offer a rich thematic narrative, the Company creates new platforms for contemporary dance and multiple points of access for audiences. Though Martha Graham herself is the best-known alumna of her company, the ensemble has provided a training ground for some of modern dance’s most celebrated performers and choreographers. Former members of the Company include Merce Cunningham, Erick Hawkins, Paul Taylor, John Butler and Glen Tetley. Celebrities who have joined the Company in performance include Mikhail Baryshnikov, Margot Fonteyn, Rudolf Nureyev, Maya Plisetskaya, Tiler Peck, Misty Copeland, Herman Cornejo and Aurelie Dupont. In recent years, the Company has challenged expectations and experimented with a wide range of offerings beyond its mainstage performances. It has created a series of intimate in-studio events, forged unusual creative partnerships with SITI Company, Performa, the New Museum, Barney’s and Siracusa’s Greek Theater Festival (to name a few); created substantial digital offerings with Google Arts and Culture, YouTube and Cennarium; and created a model for reaching new audiences through social media. The current company of dancers hail from around the world and, while grounded in their Graham core training, can also slip into the style of contemporary choreographers like a second skin, bringing technical brilliance and artistic nuance to all they do. Dance Affiliates, renamed NextMove Dance, is recognized as one of the nation’s finest dance presenters. Known internationally for award-winning presentations for almost four decades, NextMove Dance provides a wealth of opportunities for the Delaware Valley community to interact with the artists through talk-backs, master classes, artistic collaborations, workshops, children’s programs and much more. Visit www.nextmovedance.org. Annenberg Center Live and NextMove Dance present the Martha Graham Dance Company in the EVE Project, Friday, January 25 (8 p.m.) and Saturday, January 26 (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.). The program features the Philadelphia premiere of Graham’s powerful Chronicle.

New AIM Trustees, from left – Vince Lowry, Liz Greco-Rocks and John New. he AIM Academy Board of Trustees welcomed three new trustees to the organization at its board meeting last month. Liz Greco-Rocks, Vince Lowry and John New join the other 18 trustees of AIM, a 358-student 1st-12th grade school in Conshohocken and the Institute for Learning & Research. “Since AIM was founded in 2006, our Board of Trustees has supported our vision to create a school where children who learn differently can thrive with a research-based, college-prep curriculum and provide access to research and training for all educators to improve literacy for all children both in the Philadelphia area and globally,” said Pat Roberts, Executive Director and Co-Founder of AIM. “Ms. Greco-Rocks, Mr. Lowry and Mr. New bring to their new roles a commitment to AIM’s vision, a history of service to others and expertise in their fields that can support and promote AIM in innovative ways.” Liz Greco-Rocks is a communications and development professional who has dedicated her career to enhancing the work of non-profits. She directed communications at Fox Chase Cancer Center, the American Foundation for the Blind and in 2007 joined AIM, then called Academy in Manayunk, as Communications and Development Director. She retired in 2015. Ms. GrecoRocks holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Vince Lowry, CEO of Global Beta Advisors, served as lead portfolio manager at Oppenheimer Funds, LLC prior to founding Global Beta Advisors and has more than three decades of experience in the financial and investment consulting fields. Mr. Lowry received his MBA and bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s University. John New, CEO and Founder of WorkMerk LLC, is an innovator and entrepreneur with more than 25 years of leadership, management and entrepreneurial experience. Prior to founding WorkMerk, a workplace technology and consulting services company, Mr. New co-founded The Hub, a corporate meeting space platform which he led as CEO for nearly 15 years, until selling the company to Convene in 2016. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. “Liz, Vince and John were brought on to AIM’s board to help launch the next generation of our organization with the AIM Academy and the AIM Institute for Learning & Research as we work to improve teacher knowledge, educational practice and student outcomes for all struggling readers with innovative technology and educational solutions,” said Matthew Naylor, chair of AIM’s Board of Trustees. “Visionary and dedicated professionals are a hallmark of AIM’s Board of Trustees,” said AIM Associate Director and co-founder Nancy Blair. “From our founding board members to today’s current group of leaders, these individuals have shaped the success of AIM Academy and the AIM Institute for Learning & Research.”

At St. Catherine’s, her leadership has helped to shape and advance many areas of the school, including all academic departments and signature programming, such as Girls Innovate and global education. She has played an integral part in several key school initiatives, including professional development, marketing/branding, school accreditations, diversity and inclusion programming, and capital projects. Mrs. Farrell’s appointment is the culmination of an invigorating and inclusive search process, which involved participation from the entire school community—trustees, families, alumnae, students, and faculty and staff. “A lifelong educator and champion of all-girls education, Laura brings outstanding experience in education and values-centered leadership to Merion Mercy, as well as a strong personal and professional commitment to educational excellence, diversity and inclusion, all-girls education, and collaboration,” said Bill O’Shea, Chair of the Board of Trustees. A seasoned independent school leader, Laura’s career began in the classroom. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of William & Mary, Laura began teaching high school Social Studies. She was a Fulbright-Hayes recipient, received a summer study grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities, and went on to earn a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the George Washington University. While teaching, Laura emerged as a leader and distinguished herself through her work on technology initiatives; curriculum design, review, and implementation; and staff development and mentoring. After 17 years of teaching at the high school level, including four years on the faculty of St. Catherine’s School, Laura accepted her first administrative role in 2009. As Dean of Faculty, her duties include facilitating the professional growth of more than 135 faculty members; developing and running the Intensive Studies Program in STEM, Global Engagement, Entrepreneurship and the Arts; leading the work of department chairs and coordinators; and serving as a member of the Core Executive Leadership Team and as a liaison to the Coordination Committee and Education Committee of the St. Catherine’s Board of Governors; and co-chairing the Global Engagement Taskforce. “I am ready to dedicate myself to the important work of leading a vibrant Catholic girls’ school,” said Mrs. Farrell. “As an educator, I believe the best schools are those that develop the ‘whole person’ and seek to cultivate each student’s spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and social gifts. Merion Mercy Academy was built on a foundation of excellence with care taken to cultivating the minds, bodies, and spirits of young women. Now more than ever, girls’ schools are needed so that young girls can find their voices and develop to their fullest potential. I am honored to serve as the next Head of School of Merion Mercy Academy and lead it to its next level so that it can continue to educate young women who live mercy and seek justice.”

The topics of their college-level research included analyzing gene expression data, the possibility of conditioning the brain against severe injuries, the efficacy of a gene therapy used to treat Familial Hypercholesterolemia, and more. Students spent their fall semester completing formal research papers and presented their scientific findings to a group of their peers, parents, and school administration. Several alumni who took part in the Research Symposium while at Haverford also attended the presentations. The student research papers are submitted to science publications and competitions, and provide the students with a foundation of scientific research skills that can be applied at the collegiate level and beyond. Kara Cleffi leads the program, along with fellow Upper School science teacher Tom Trocano. “This project allows our students to be the experts in the room,” said Trocano. “It requires them to develop the process and skills that are required to communicate their research both in a professional scientific paper, as well as in a layperson setting like our symposium. Students apply to take the elective as juniors. Once accepted to the class, students explore research in many scientific fields to determine their topic of interest.

Dine & Dish will be an excellent opportunity for our culinary team to really roll out the red carpet and showcase an exceptional experience. We designed our restaurant with the goal of guests creating memories and sharing their stories over great wine and food – so Dine & Dish is the perfect pairing.” Following January’s debut with Dougherty at The Bercy, Dine & Dish will continue with Andrew Greenblatt, CEO of The Philadelphia Film Society, on Monday, February 25, and Marcus Allan, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence, on Monday, March 25.

“ROI, Real-time Or Instead – Works by Mark Price” Art Exhibit The Black Moth Gallery presents “ROI, Real-time Or Instead – Works by Mark Price.” This solo show will be on view February 1 - February 28. Mark Price’s silkscreen printed collage exhibition “ROI, Real-time Or Instead” features new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price. Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions. The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever-expanding built environment. Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 12 - 8 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For info call 610-642-1500. Visit https://www.facebook.com/events/524011661418302/.

n this dark comedy, Reza de Wet weaves together a collection of Chekhov’s iconic characters into a single musing on the end of a world. On February 1, EgoPo Classic Theater presents this great South African playwright’s take on Anton Chekhov’s classic, twenty years later, during the fall the privileged society. Three Sisters Two previews January 3031 and opens Friday, February 1. The show runs three weeks, closing February 17. Tickets range $25-$35. Performances are at the Latvian Society Theater at 7th & Spring Garden, in Philadelphia. EgoPo’s boldly themed seasons continue with this year’s Theater of South Africa, celebrating great dramatic works from the country’s rich theatrical tradition. By telling these stories, EgoPo honors the profound moment in world history when apartheid came to an end, and hopes to provide new perspectives on racism and social justice in our own country, while highlighting a diverse community of Philadelphia artists. Theater of South Africa began with EgoPo hosting a South African version of the American classic, Desire Under the Elms, followed by the powerful A Human Being Died That Night, which looked at the process of forgiveness and reconciliation. EgoPo continues with Three Sisters Two, which looks at how the world feels as the status quo is challenged, and concludes with CENSORED: A rotating repertory of two banned South African plays featuring “Master Harold”…and the Boys by Athol Fugard and Egoli by Matsemela Manaka (co-produced with Theatre in the X), shining a light on two vastly different experiences under apartheid. Subscriptions to see all three spring plays are just $60. For information, go to www.EgoPo.org, or call 267-273-1414. Reza de Wet is one of South Africa’s most celebrated playwrights with over 40 theater and literary awards. She is the country’s top female playwright and considered, alongside Fugard, to be a leading voice of South African theater’s apartheid resistance. She is also unique for writing throughout her life in her native Afrikaans, despite English being the more popular language of publication. In her later plays, de Wet began to channel Chekhov, re-writing his plays for a contemporary audience and bringing him to new life. In her darkly comic Three Sisters Two, de Wet weaves together a collection of Chekhov’s iconic characters into a single musing on the end of a world. As war closes in around them, and the threat of restitution hangs in the air, a once-privileged family clings determinedly to their fading life. EgoPo regular Brenna Geffers (Anna, Machinal, The Hairy Ape) will direct the American Premiere of this piece that The Telegraph of London called “a play that combines wit with deep feeling” and continued, “Any fan of Chekhov will want to see this imaginative and often extremely touching sequel.” Winner of Best Production of the Year at the 1999 South African Theater Awards, the play has also been produced in England, The Netherlands, and Czechia. EgoPo is excited to present an all-star cast of EgoPo favorites including Ross Beschler (Delirium, Machinal, Hell), Andrew J. Carroll (Lydie Breeze Trilogy, Anna, The Seagull), Colleen Corcoran (Anna, Machinal, The Hairy Ape), Maria Konstantinidis (Company, Anna, The Hairy Ape), Lee Minora (Machinal, The Women, The Hairy Ape), Kishia Nixon (The Children’s Hour), Amanda Schoonover (Anna, The Hairy Ape, Jesse James), and Jahzeer Terrell (Lydie Breeze Trilogy).
