The Cherry Orchard- Staged Reading

by Anton Chekhov

May 25 & 26

In collaboration with Pima Community College, Live Theatre Workshop seeks to blend new voices with old stories. Diverse casting and exciting new takes on classical pieces help us bring a depth and a light to canon. We can claim our own stories. We can shine new light. All the while, pairing individuals who are new to acting and theatre, with talented and mentoring actors in an effort to teach, guide and learn together. We all win. The stories. The cast. The community. In this staged reading of Anton Chekhov’s” The Cherry Orchard,” a Russian aristocratic family struggles to come to terms with the loss of their ancestral estate and the inevitable changes of a shifting society, symbolized by the impending auction of their cherished cherry orchard. The play delves into themes of social class, generational divides, and the often painful passage of time.
