Will & Company Drama Troupe
|When||Saturday, February 22, 2014, 9:00 AM|
This is event is part of the annual SCORR Conference which is a national two-day conference where students, staff and faculty from Christian universities across the country join together to celebrate diversity within the body of Christ. This year's conference is on Friday and Saturday, February 21 and 22, 2014 in Sutherland Auditorium. Conference attendees will engage in dialogue and instruction that seeks transformational growth, resulting in the building of God’s Kingdom on earth. The SCORR theme this year is on the biblical concept of “Shalom.” A rich concept that is found throughout the scriptures, shalom signifies community, interdependence, vibrancy and human thriving. In Jeremiah 29:11 the Lord speaks to his people, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you," says the Lord, "thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give a future and a hope.” The Hebrew word for peace here is “Shalom.” Here we read how Shalom is our Lord’s will for us; it is a reality embedded in the Kingdom of God.
Will & Company is a not-for-profit theatre ensemble based in Los Angeles and touring the nation. Founded by Artistic Director Colin Cox in 1988, Will & Company began primarily as a troupe dedicated to making Shakespeare accessible to under-represented communities. Over the years, their work has extended to include contemporary works which blend educational and historical material with entertainment. Based in the most multicultural city of Los Angeles, their casting choices are not "color blind", but rather "color-full", creating an artistic utopia whereby the best actor for each part is cast regardless of ethnicity, gender or ability. They are are believers in art for social change and choose work that can facilitate this goal.
