Beth Woolley in Bear GirlPlaywright J.C. Luxton’s writing has a beautiful eloquence about it, with poetic word choices and graceful rhythms in his verse. And while I did not understand all of the finer details in the Prenzie Players' Friday-night production of Luxton’s Bear Girl – due solely to my own shortcomings when it comes to dialogue delivered in verse – the themes and main plot points were clearly told, and also, thanks to director Cait Bodenbender’s treatment of the material, interesting, entertaining, and educational.

Beth Woolley in Bear GirlThe local theatre troupe the Prenzie Players is most commonly known for stylistically bold, occasionally gender-bending takes on classical dramas and comedies, principally the works of William Shakespeare. But the company is about to embark on a particularly challenging experiment with its forthcoming production of the debuting Bear Girl – and the play’s author, Prenzie co-founder J.C. Luxton, could hardly be accused of aiming too low.

“If you think of Shakespeare’s Henriad,” says Luxton, referencing the Bard’s historical trilogy of Richard II, Henry IV, and Henry V, “it’s kind of the epic of England. An epic story of who we are and how we came to be. And I think what I’m trying to do with Bear Girl is the beginnings of something similar for the Quad Cities area.”

Eddie Staver III in Life's a Dream Say what you will about the Prenzie Players' latest presentation, but you can't say that the classical-theatre troupe, with its production of Pedro Calderón de la Barca's Life's a Dream, is merely resting on its laurels.

Reader issue #682 The latest undertaking by the Quad Cities' classical-drama troupe the Prenzie Players is an adaptation of Spanish playwright Pedro Calderón de la Barca's Life's a Dream, and at one point during a recent interview, group co-founder and Dream director J.C. Luxton tells me, "This show is just running, running, running. There aren't a lot of breaks for anybody."

Including, as it turns out, the audience.
