Everything You Touch

Date/Time: 3/2/2018 - 3/8/2018 (08:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

Everything You Touch
By Sheila Callaghan
Directed by Rachel Karp ’18

Performances: March 2-8 at 8pm, Sunday Matinee at 2pm
At the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater on the Skidmore College Campus

Saratoga Springs, NY — Skidmore Theater is pleased to announce its Spring Black Box production, Everything You Touch by Sheila Callaghan, directed by Rachel Karp ’18. Featuring an all-student production team and a script by the writer of hit television show Shameless, Everything You Touch boldly takes on the timely issues of body image and the societal pressure for perfection in a darkly comedic world of fashion and fantasy.

Synopsis: Two worlds unfurl simultaneously: the fashion world of the 1970s and contemporary Manhattan. Though separated by three decades, both are shaped by the desire for perfect careers, perfect bodies, and perfect lives. In the 1970s, Victor, a designer, and Esme, his muse, are immersed in their quest for beauty, art, and the ever-elusive idealized versions of themselves. That is, until Louella comes along, a shockingly ordinary woman from Arkansas who inspires Victor to cast Esme aside and make his clothing accessible to the people. In the present day, Jess embarks on a cross-country road trip to see her estranged, dying mother one last time, with a stranger named Victor who may or may not be the imaginary reincarnation of her father. Along the way, she is forced to consider her own body-image, fraught with the self-hatred she has inherited from her mother and her world.

The exhibition examines the pivotal role of Alphonse Mucha (1860 – 1939) in shaping the aesthetics of French Art Nouveau at the turn of the twentieth century. The artist’s posters and graphic style popularized the international style. A Czech nationalist, later in his career, he depicted the history of the Czech lands and people. Master of Art Nouveau spans his career, including a panel from his Slav Epic series, and bank notes from his homeland.

Inspecting Carol at HMT

Date/Time: 2/10/2018 - 2/25/2018 (07:30 pm)

By Daniel Sullivan. Take a seat for a laugh out loud razzle dazzle of funny characters in this hilarious farce! This madcap comedy creates a theater experience that is anything but show business as usual. The play is about a group of dysfunctional theater people who take themselves very seriously. This struggling theater company is set to open their annual production of A Christmas Carol when they find out their funding is being held up until they pass an undercover inspection. When an impossibly bad actor is mistakenly identified as the inspector, the troupe does everything to accommodate his craziest wishes. As the impending opening night draws closer, it seems only a Christmas miracle will save this production.
