As a regular news item, we are continuing to highlight the various arts and culture recipients of Clackamas County Cultural Coalition Project Grants. This month, we are excited to feature Clackamas Repertory Theatre’s presentation of Sense and Sensibility.
Lauded as, “A rollicking comedy about the English landed gentry, Kate Hamill’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic has charm, wit and a dose of modern, biting irony that makes the story as relevant today as it was in the 19th century. The first show of its 14th season, Sense and Sensibility ran through most of July 2018. The play had 10 actors doubling and tripling roles, men playing female characters and vice versa, and minimal but fun and creative set pieces and props. The play, filled with humor and emotional depth, examines all of our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures.”
Clackamas Repertory Theatre received a $2,000 Project Grant to help offset actors’ salaries. An estimated 2,272 people were impacted by this project!
