A perfect 10

Dear Editor:As a local actress I am, once again, grateful for the opportunities and the Roaring Fork Valleys support of the arts. This week, Julia Hansens Theatre Masters brings professional directors, actors and up-and-coming playwrights to join with local actors in the production of 10 original 10-minute plays. In one week, we all are challenged to come together and create an entertaining and thought-provoking theater festival, complete with developed characters, lighting, sound, set design and costumes.Theater always has represented the times in which we live. These 10 plays are a reflection of many aspects of our society, bringing out the absurd, the playful, the pathetic and the confusing. Playwrights from major university masters programs and high schools work with our three phenomenal directors to fine tune each piece. At 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Aspen Institute, the playwrights participate in a FREE panel discussion of this process. Everyone is encouraged to attend. If you wish to join the group for dinner, please call the institute.All performances are at the Black Box Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 27-29 at Aspen High School. Tickets start at $20 and are available at the door or by calling 948-9484.It is so easy in our town to become insulated and isolated in thought and creativity. Theatre Masters Take 10 offers the opportunity to expand our minds and hearts by connecting with the brilliance of those out there in the theatrical circuit. Thank you Julia and thank you Aspen.
