Audition Announcement!

By on in Archive |

Talley’s Folly Seeking co-habiting heterosexual couple for Hilliard Arts Council production of Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Talley’s Folly.  This way the two actors would not need to socially distance from each other.  Synopsis. The play takes place in 1944 in Lebanon, Missouri where Matt Friedman, an accountant from St. Louis, comes to plead his love to Sally Talley.  Sally’s family doesn’t approve of Matt and she refuses his proposal of marriage.  Throughout the course of the play Matt and Sally gradually find a way to come together. Character descriptions: Matt: 42 and dark, and rather large.  Warm and unhurried, he has a definite talent for mimicry.  In his voice there is still a trace of a German-Jewish accent of which he is probably unaware.   Sally: 31. Light, thin, quite attractive but in no way glamorous or glamorized.  Straightforward, rather tired.  When she gets angry, she has a pronounced Ozark accent, but when she concentrates on what she is saying, the accent becomes much less pronounced.   Auditions Sat. Oct. 16 and Sunday Oct. 17.  Contact Robin Brenneman at kenrob@columbus.rr.com to arrange an audition time.  Auditions will be held at the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center....

Community Mural “Coloring the Path to Our Future.”

By on in Coming Events, Community |

VIRTUAL UNVEILING LIVE EVENT! Stay tuned! The Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center was selected as the site of a new community mural, created by artist Mandi Caskey, Hilliard City Schools teacher Amanda Schaeffer and her Art and Ecology students. The mural came about through an Ohio Arts Council grant written by Amanda to engage students in art beyond their classroom. This mural is truly a community mural as it has also involved the City of Hilliard through the Hilliard Public Arts Commission, and the maintenance department of Hilliard who will be installing the work. The Hilliard Arts Council provided funding for the wood base, paint and brushes for the work.  Community involvement also includes Sherwin Williams who gave a deep discount for paint and supplies.    STUDENT ART VIRTUAL EXHIBIT There was to be an art exhibit from the Art and Ecology students to be installed at the HAC Gallery for a May 3rd unveiling of the mural which has evolved into a virtual display of their work that can be found...
