All things theatrical

Picture this: Art inspires drama

20 September 2013, 11:02 am by

In an age when commercial theater uses the movies as muse, it’s kind of refreshing to hear what’s cooking at the Steamer Company Firehouse in Ossining on Oct. 19, when art—actual art—will inspire works of theater.
There’s an element of surprise in the “Living Art Event,” a joint production of the Ossining Arts Council and Westchester Collaborative Theater. A docent will lead a gallery tour during which, on a sudden, a one-act play will be spring to life. All of the plays are directed by WCT member Michael Thomas Cain.
WCT, an Ossining-based theater lab, commissioned plays inspired by six works from a recent OAC members’ show. Their creations will be unveiled in four one-hour tours—at noon, 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.—on the second floor of the Steamer Firehouse, 117 Main St., Ossining. The last tour will be followed by a meet-the-artists reception at 5:30, with refreshments. Tickets are $15, $25 for the final tour and reception. Buy them at the OAC website or at the WCT website.
