SR Theatre goes ‘Out on a Limb’

The last two performances of Scripps Ranch Theatre’s “Out on a Limb: New Plays from America’s Finest City” are at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 22 and 2 p.m. Sunday, July 23 at the Legler Benbough Theatre on the campus of Alliant International University, 9783 Avenue of Nations.

The “Out on a Limb” festival, now in its sixth season, is highly recommended as a way to experience three original plays written by local playwrights, and performed and directed by some of San Diego’s best and most dedicated theater talent.

“All of the plays that are showcased in the festival have something to do with San Diego. They have a San Diego theme,” explained Susan Clausen, a spokeswoman for Scripps Ranch Theatre.

The theater group solicits playwrights from San Diego to apply for the festival. Three of the candidates are chosen and they each have an opportunity to write a short play.

“What makes ‘Out on a Limb’ different is that the focus is on San Diego and the focus is on creating art, new work by local playwrights with an inspiration from our city. Having as broad an inspiration as that opens up the door to all kinds of creative angles,” Clausen explained. “So, we’ve got some really wonderful plays that have come out of it. They start as short plays and some of them have been developed into full plays after their appearance in ‘Out on a Limb.’ It’s a wonderful growth opportunity in our community.”

The first play in “Out on a Limb” this year is “Looking for Muse” by Steve Oberman. It features a main character who is a student at UCSD.

“He’s looking for someone to inspire him. He puts up a want ad and somebody responds to it,” Clausen said. “It’s an interesting combination of two strangers meeting, each trying to fill a void.”

The second play is called “The Box,” written by Joe Nogra.

“This is the story of a gift that’s given to a newlywed couple and they are told not to open it until they get into their very first fight,” Clausen said. “Throughout their life together they choose to open or not to open it. There’s always this conversation about what could be in it. How could it help us? What’s its purpose?”

“The Strange Education of Marina Santiago-Scripps” is the third play. It’s written by the team of Diana Burbano, Tom Shelton and Chris Shelton.

“This is a really interesting one. There’s sort of a magical realism in this,” Clausen explained. “It’s the story of Ellen Browning Scripps — the philanthropist of La Jolla — and this young woman who sort of uses her for inspiration for her decision making, and has conversations with her. It’s a wonderful examination of characters who are from San Diego.”

Scripps Ranch Theatre is funded by private grants, city grants and individual donations. Only a small portion of the budget comes from ticket sales for plays held at The Legler Benbough Theatre, which holds about 118 people. Scripps Ranch Theater had its start in 1978 and has grown into a hotbed of new, original works.

“This started years ago as a community theater and has developed into a more professional level theater company where the same performers who are performing at main stages all over the county are performing at Scripps Ranch,” Clausen said. “Same with directors. Same with playwrights. It’s really become a leader as far as new works are concerned.”

Today, Scripps Ranch Theatre has a number of theater programs beyond its regular stage performance season. For instance, it runs New Works Studio, which is a program that helps mentor playwrights over a 9-month period with workshops to help them create a production-ready script for a new play.

It also has an Education and Out Reach Program that takes theater into the schools. In addition, Scripps Ranch Theatre partners with the YMCA to provide a theater summer camp.

“Our goal is to really reach our community artistically at every age,” Clausen said.

“It’s really grown into an organization that focuses on developing new work while maintaining an interesting blend of performances throughout the year: comedies and dramas and musicals and new works,” she added.

The theater’s 2017 season kicks off Sept. 8 with its production of “Accomplice.”

  1. One thing I have actually noticed is the fact there are plenty of fallacies regarding the banking institutions intentions whenever talking about home foreclosure. One myth in particular is always that the bank wishes to have your house. The bank wants your hard earned dollars, not the home. They want the money they loaned you together with interest. Avoiding the bank will draw a foreclosed final result. Thanks for your publication.

  16. Überraschend für viele Spieler: Novolinespiele wie Book of Ra oder Merkurautomaten wie Triple Chance haben nicht die beste Quote! Lassen Sie also die anderen Software Hersteller nicht links liegen und fokussieren Sie sich nicht zu sehr auf die Spielautomaten, die Sie noch aus der Spielothek kennen. Meistens verfügt jede der drei Walzen über drei Icons. So, dass ein 9 x 9 Spielfeld entsteht. Auf diesem Walzenset gibt es der Erfahrung nach 1 bis 5 Gewinnlinien. Die erste liegt waagerecht in der Mitte der Walzen. Zwei weitere mögliche Lines befinden sich waagerecht im oberen und unteren Teil des Walzensets. Die letzten zwei Lines, die bei fortschrittlichen klassischen Slots vorkommen, verlaufen diagonal von oben nach unten und von unten nach oben, beginnend auf Walze eins.

  23. I like the idea of earning upside from your rewards, and to some people, crypto credit card rewards are akin to gambling with house money. Just be prepared for a wild ride since crypto prices are notoriously volatile. Most people are probably better suited for more traditional cash back or travel redemptions. This type of hold-for-interest has become so popular that mainstream crypto dealers like Coinbase offer it. Some tokens, such as the very stable USDC (pegged to the US dollar), offer about .15 percent annual interest rates (not too different from putting your money in a bank in a low-interest checking account), while other digital currencies might earn you 5 or 6 percent a year. Some services require staking to lock up funds for a certain period of time (meaning you can’t deposit and withdraw whenever you want) and may require a minimum amount to draw interest. http://josuerjym531086.aboutyoublog.com/13935435/bitcoin-price-today-in-india The cryptocurrency market is highly volatile, so be prepared for ups and downs. You will see dramatic swings in prices. If your investment portfolio or mental wellbeing can’t handle that, cryptocurrency might not be a wise choice for you. With CEX.IO, you can monitor real time cryptocurrency prices and use advanced tools to be always informed about the current market situation and recent price changes. Here is what you need to know about crypto prices. Synthetix Network is a decentralized trading platform on Ethereum. It lets people create markets for real-world assets like stocks and commodities, which can be traded using cryptocurrency. SNX tokens are used as collateral to back these “synthetic” assets. When the company was founded in 2012, after co-founders Brian Armstrong (the current CEO) and Fred Ehrsam met on a Reddit thread, cryptocurrency had just started to get off the ground but was already facing headwinds from the theft and hacking at the Mt. Gox exchange in Japan. Coinbase helped build the cryptocurrency sector by providing secure custody of digital assets for ordinary investors lacking expertise in digital wallets and lengthy passwords.

  25. De destule ori cu două cărţi legate (suited connectors), unii sunt dispuşi să împingă. Fie pentru a se dubla, fie pentru a fura blindurile. În măsura în care se lovesc de o pereche (mai) mare, sunt departe de a fi în situaţia ideală. Perechea va câştiga 5 din 6 dueluri; lucrurile se pot schimba uşor în măsura în care cărţile mici sunt conectate sau de aceeaşi culoare, precum în cazul nostru. Ori de câte ori nu a fost acțiune înaintea ta, cel mai bun joc este fie să pariezi (raise) , fie să arunci mâna. Prin pariere, se preia controlul mâinii și se pune imediat orice adversar  în gardă. Jucătorii buni tind să atace „limperii” pentru că îi preivesc ca fiind slabi. Și, în cele mai multe cazuri, au dreptate. Așadar, dacă nu sunteți într-un pot multi-way, cu conectori potriviți sau cu o perechi mică (vânând un terț), evitați limp-ul precum ciuma! https://kylervods764209.wizzardsblog.com/8926808/jocuri-pacanele-cu-speciale Brandurile producătoare de software pentru casino online vin cu noi variante de sloturi, care oferă caracteristici originale, așa cum se întâmplă cu păcăneaua Shinging Crown (dublu simbol Scatter) sau cele cu rotiri gratuite casino online.

  27. Ruletti on yksi suosituimmista olemassa olevista kasinopeleistä, ja voit pelata 40+ ilmaista rulettipeliä täällä, mukaan lukien amerikkalainen ja eurooppalainen ruletti. Ruletissa oikean numeron arpoo pelinhoitaja. Hän laittaa värikkään pyörän pyörimään ja sen jälkeen lähettää arvontavälineenä käytettävän kuulan pyörän sisällä päinvastaiseen suuntaan. Pyörän pyöriessä pelaajat jännittävät, missä kohti pyörää kuulan vauhti hidastuu niin paljon, että se pysähtyy. Pelaajat voivat ruletissa lyödä vetoa joko yksittäisen numeron, numeroryhmän tai värin mukaan. Vetoa lyödessä käytetään apuna pöytään eriteltyjä pieniä ruutuja. Pelaajat voivat asettaa niille haluamansa määrän panoksia, ja sen jälkeen alkaa jännitys pelin lopullisesta tuloksesta. Voittaja ratkeaa, kun kuula on löytänyt lopullisen kohteensa pyörältä. https://seavtuber.com/community/profile/katherinsxl5529 iGame-sivustolle rekisteröityvät ja ensimmäistä kertaa tallettavat pelaajat saavat talletusbonuksena 50% ekstraa aina 50 euroon asti.

Näiden lisäksi kullakin talletuskerralla pelaajaa hellitään hauskasti ilmaispyöräytyksillä, jotka talletuskerrasta riippuen annetaan joko Starburstiin, Twin Spiniin, Gonzo’s Questiin tai Piggy Richesiin.

Unfortunately, hormone surges can also manifest as new and exciting skin issues like acne, dark spots, dry or greasy patches, dullness, redness or extra sensitivity.

It’s loaded with skin-soothing botanicals and antioxidants to instantly moisturize tired, dehydrated skin, leaving behind a healthy, vibrant complexion. If you find that oils leave you too greasy, stick to using them at night only. And given all the Vitamin E and Omegas it packs, it makes a great belly oil as well!
