SIST Presents Summer Rep: Much Ado About Nothing and Antigone @ William H Pouch Scout Camp
Jun 29 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company Presents 2019 Summer Repertory:

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, or THE NOTING: A SHAKESPEAREAN WORKPLACE
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Ariel Marcus

Gossip. Clock in. “Did you hear?” Judgements. Post its. “I thought she was.” Hearsay. Coffee break. “Can you believe that?” Whispers. Lunch room. “He said what?” Rumors. Lies. “Take note.” Here in the office, what is said around the watercooler can make or break you, but don’t clock out early or you’ll miss the truth. This modern “mockumentary” take on Shakespeare’s comedy masterpiece deals farcically about love and romance in the aftermath of corporate war – and in the midst of reality television.

And

ANTIGONE: NEVER AGAIN
By Sophocles
Directed by Ariana Nicoletta

During this time of political unrest and violence, one important group of our society has stood out: the activism of Millennials.

Antigone is an Ancient Greek tragedy that brings to light the kind of impact youth have when protesting injustice, especially in the face of violence and war. This production holds a mirror to own violent society and shows the strength and purity of young Antigone, along with her Millennial generation of activists, in face of being pushed aside and mocked as naïve.

Sunrise Tai Chi @ H.H. Biddle House (in Conference House Park)
Jul 1 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation through movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.

Please pack a lunch for the day. There is no refrigeration for the lunches at the zoo so the lunches need to be non-perishable.
