The Migrant House

A staged reading of Louise Wigglesworth's new play, The Migrant House, will be presented on Monday, the 19th of March, at 7pm. This presentation is included in your Season Pass, or is just $10 at the door.

In the 1940s, many who were uprooted by war and economic stress sought refuge and employment on America's farms. Migrant House tells stories of displaced persons who spend different summers in the same workers' cottage.

Staged readings are a wonderful opportunity for audiences to see a play that is in development and to participate in providing feedback to the playwright; and they are also useful to playwrights to gauge the response they get from a live audience. Please join us from the ground up as we support our area playwrights and artists.

Dr. Rose Thorn

Dr. Thorn is a clinical psychologist in private practice. She is also a teacher of meditation and psychology, and is a certified spiritual director.

Dr. Thorn realizes that all of her life experiences have contributed to her style and capacity for insight. Her academic work in psychology, education, theology, and philosophy creates a broad base of knowledge upon which she can draw for inspiration in her work. Her personal interests in art, writing, and meditation practice refuel her and keep her focused. Her dance experiences have contributed to the awareness of the mind/body connection which she brings to her work. She feels that becoming happy begins with how we see ourselves and the world. In her work she helps her clients to develop understanding of the world which facilitates their own happiness as well as the happiness of the others in their lives. She feels that being able to look flexibly at the real issues in front of her in each moment is enhanced by having familiarity with many different systems of understanding. And for Dr. Thorn it is clearly understanding the person with her in each unfolding moment, in order to create a new perspective and a new fulfilling experience, that is of utmost importance.
RE-Minding: A Seminar Of Looking

RE-Minding: A Seminar Of Looking
This seminar will begin with the questions and concerns that the participants bring
about their own life journeys. We will look at the experience emerging from these wondering observations. Looking at that current experiential context will help us to see how all experience is constructed and discovered. This spontaneously arising interdependent looking welcomes any and all participant perspectives, spiritual and political.

This is NOT group therapy. But what is it? Hmmmm......We shall see!

Come and join me in an utterly new adventure.....

Materials will be provided.

$90 per student for a 6-week session, starting on Sunday, March 4 and ending on Sunday, April 8.

Sessions will begin at 6:30pm and will be 1.5 hours in length.

Minimum 8 students, maximum 15 students.

Lab Theater is thrilled to be working on two new initiatives this season, in addition to its other educational programming:

1. The theater is partnering with Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP) to work with Lee County middle and high school students on trafficking awareness through a series of scenes from stage plays, classroom activities, and lectures.

2. The theater is offering courses to LGBTQ students and allies aged 13-18 in Dramaturgy and Playwriting. The Dramaturgy course will sample theatrical works with LGBT characters, investigate family dynamics in plays, and discuss progress in the LGBT community. The Playwriting course will craft full-length plays under the guidance of award-winning playwright Louise Wigglesworth, participate in writing exercises and in peer review.
