Acting Up (in Acadiana) invites you to take part in a rare chance to observe the creative process of developing a collaborative new work. Most often, our community only experiences final, polished performances on stage. We don't often have the opportunity to observe the rehearsal process. To see how work is developed. To witness the art of collaboration between different disciplines. Acting Up (in Acadiana) opens our process to the public as we develop PLAY. MUSIC. HEAL. The project brings together actors, musicians, and writers to create a contemporary story about the potential for music to heal. The guest artist for the Dec.1st installment is the one and only Chris Courville, drummer for the Lost Bayou Ramblers. All sessions are free and open to the public and take place at the Acadiana Center for the Arts at 101 W. Vermilion St. in downtown Lafayette from 6-7:45 p.m. For more information, contact Paige Krause at (337) 309-4964.
