Monday January 19 - HAMS (Hampshire Actors and Makers of Shows) - First Baptist Church Romney WV 6 pm - meets twice monthly (first Thursday and third Monday) to brainstorm productions and also do scene and improv work and much more - contact Dale Brady 304-834-8369 or email theater[at]HampshireArts.org - public welcome - no experience necessary.
At the meetings, the group reads scripts and poems, studying scenes and acting and exploring the world of improv. Also, a brainstorming session is held about what can be done while building the group into an acting troupe that can perform plays. As part of its mission of outreach and education, the group is looking at how to take theatre to the schools and other venues and perform fundraisers for good causes.
The group invites anyone interested to come and share thoughts about what a theatre could be and what having one would mean to this area. Actors and audiences, techies and designers, writers and listeners, directors and poets, singers, musicians, dancers - it takes all of these and more to get "from the page to the stage!"
Bring your supper if you like and join us!!!!

Art Camp 2014 A Huge Success!
Summer Arts Camp 2014 was held at WVSDB June 23-27 in a great collaboration with the WV Schools for the Deaf and Blind that involved 87 campers in multiple classes including various types of music, drama, fused glass, metal working, fibers, writing, pottery, painting, drawing, photo literacy, etc. On Friday, a community luncheon provided a wonderful showcase of the campers' creations and signing, dancing and theatrical talents.
The effort was so successful, talk is of doubling the number of campers for 2015! Kudos to coordinators Joanne Snead and Nadine Miller, instructors Josh Liller, Sibyl MacKenzie, Liz Braun, Michael Anderson, Gayle Allen, Lou Mazzeo, Brenton Colbert, Judi Gaydos, Cheri Seiler and Mark. as well as many staff members of the WVSDB, lead by Patty Myers.
