New World Variety Show

Extra!  Extra!

Coming for one special performance only, a live production of Spanish playwright Lope de Vega’s (small) New World variety show. Saturday, July 27, 7:30 p.m., OLD Courthouse, Crawfordvillle, upstairs.

This is a translation of the first play in history to dramatize European/Native American contact here in Florida. Ben Gunter, director of Theater With a Mission, in cooperation with Wakulla’s Palaver Tree Theater, brings the 70-minute, one-act performance to Crawfordville as part of Florida’s Sesquisentennial celebration (Viva Florida 500).

New World‘s Ben Gunter invites audience interaction particularly during the songs and dances, the riddles, and the taste of what Florida was like in 1513.

The cast, in period costumes, looks forward to talking with the audience after the performance when “Old World, New World” refreshments will be served.

A donation of $10 per person is suggested, children under 12 admitted free of charge. For more information call 926-3126, Madeleine Carr.
