Amana – It’ s back by overwhelming popular demand! The Old Creamery’ s production of Marriage Can Be Murder is returning to the Ox Yoke Inn, Amana after all performances were sold out last February.

This is a wedding you’ ll not forget. A flirty bridesmaid who has a thing for the groom, an over-the-top wedding planner, a spoiled rotten bride and an unsolved murder would spell disaster for any other wedding. But, in The Old Creamery’ s production of Marriage Can Be Murder, it only brings on the laughs.

Marriage Can Be Murder, by James Daab returns to the Ox Yoke Inn for only four performances: July 6, 7, 13 and 14. The cast consists of Old Creamery regulars Kamille Zbanek of Ely; T.J. Besler of Manchester; Tom Milligan and Deborah Kennedy of East Amana; Jackie McCall and Sean McCall of Marengo; and Nicholas Hodge of Marion.

The evening includes a mouth watering Ox Yoke Inn meal with choice of entrée, beverage and dessert. Performance times are 6 p.m. Seating begins at 5:30 p.m. Cost is $45 per person for dinner and the show and includes all gratuity and tax. Because the action takes place during dinner, show only tickets are not available. Call today or you might miss this wild wedding!

For reservations, call the Ox Yoke Inn, Amana at 800-233-3441.

Register today for The Internet Players Summer Theatre Class Series! Three separate but intertwining classes will take place in June and July for two hours per week: Producer/Front of House Manager, Director/Stage Manager and Acting/Noise Interaction Games. The Producer/Front of House Manager Class Series will explore the techniques theatre practitioners can use to build lively theatre environments. In the series for Directors and Stage Managers, students will develop their artistic leadership skills and personal philosophies. The Acting Class Series will delve into many different acting techniques throughout history involving a great deal of movement and performing. All three classes will meet separately, before joining together in the last few weeks to create a contemporary work using the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the classes.

These Class Series will be taught by our founder and Artistic Director, Nathan Porteshawver. He has studied many different theatre techniques and theories at Brandeis University and Royal Holloway University in London. Some of those theories include Noh Drama, Suzuki acting method, Feldenkrais acting method, stage combat, Stanislavski and Bogart theatre. He’s particularly well versed in ancient Greek and ancient Japanese theatre, as well as a more modern approach, called Kinesthetic Acting. He has recently combined some of these theories into his own class called “Noise Interaction Games.”

Nathan has taught children of all ages and even college students. The first class he taught was Brandeis University and was about the relationship between politics and theatre. Locally, he has taught at Davenport Junior Theatre, where he developed a new and original play for his class to perform at the end of the week.

Class sizes are limited, so sign up now! Please visit www.theinternetplayers.com for details including exact class times and to get registered by selecting the “Summer Classes” link.
