Another Exciting Sinclair Theatre Production Coming March 26

SCCT_The Cold Equations logoSinclair Theatre presents THE COLD EQUATIONS: A Play for Radio, based upon the short story of the same name by Tom Godwin, streaming free on Sinclair Theatre’s Facebook page beginning March 26, 2021.  Adapted and directed by Daniel Brunk, the audio performance features the voices of Connor Gray, Mari Pullings, Alexis Paige, Kiarra Matos, Helen Mahle-Grisez and Lydia Dye.

While Godwin’s original science fiction space story was published in 1954, its timeless ethical dilemma remains in Brunk’s updated version, accompanied by a creatively expanded plot. “The Cold Equations” refers to scientific calculations used to create unemotional procedures designed to ensure successful missions.

Brunk, who also recorded and edited the production, says, “I started listening to OTR (Old Time Radio) maybe 15 or 20 years ago and I heard “The Cold Equations” as produced by the NBC radio program X Minus One around that time.  The thought of making my own radio version has been with me for a decade.”

“It turned out that now was the perfect time to undertake the project, given the pandemic and the necessary limitations on live performances,”  says Brunk. “It also provides Sinclair’s Theatre department with the opportunity to produce a different kind of theatre, and allows the students to gain experience as voice actors.”

Brunk is an award-winning sound and lighting designer and assistant professor of theatre technology at Sinclair. He holds a B.A. in Theatre and English from the University of Maine and an M.F.A. in Theatre Production/Design & Technology from Ohio University. He has previously worked at the University of Maine at Farmington, Dartmouth College, and Papermill Theatre in New Hampshire.

Live and Streamed Performance CZECH IT OUT Presented by KSO on March 6

1985 International Way, Hebron, KY

The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra returns to an industrial warehouse for Czech It Out — an all Antonin Dvorak program — featuring local cellist prodigy, Miriam K. Smith. Even in a pandemic, the beauty of music, with its transcendent consoling and uplifting qualities, generates the power to bring our community together. Finding venues with the required space to appropriately distance and offer opportunities thas been challenging. Since October, thankfully neighbors and friends at Verst Group Logistics (VGL) and St. Peter in Chains Cathedral Basilica, have graciously opened their doors to live KSO rehearsals and performances. While distribution warehouses are continually moving product in and out, VGL has gone out of their way to make room for the KSO to use its 60,000 sq ft. heated industrial warehouse for live, in-person concerts.

Dvorák’s 7th Symphony in D minor will open the program. Inspired by premiere of Brahms’ Third Symphony, Dvorák’s
seventh symphony is a beautiful, yet somber and darker hued work, reflecting Dvorák’s mindset after the losses of both his mother and Bedrich Smetana — the father of modern Czech music. Symphony No. 7 is often regarded as Antonin Dvorák’s best symphony, though his 9th Symphony (“From the New World”), written in the U.S., remains his most popular.

KSO_Miriam K SmithDvorák’s renowned Cello Concerto in B minor was also composed in the U.S., though premiered in London. Local 14-year old Miriam K. Smith will make her KSO debut with her first performance of Dvorak’s masterwork. Miriam made her orchestral debut at age 8, and has since appeared as a soloist with the Cincinnati Symphony, Louisville, and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestras. Winner of numerous competitions, Ms Smith has also won awards for her recordings. (See full bio below)

The KSO continues to employ musicians to safely make great live music available for residents of Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. Join us as Miriam K. Smith and the orchestra fill a Hebron, KY warehouse with the music of Dvorak —7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 6th. Kentucky Safe at Work Guidelines will be employed, and patrons are required to don masks and maintain distance.

Tickets for each show this year remain — $35 — to experience great musicians, guest artists and innovative programming unique to our region. For those who must stay home, the KSO is live streaming each concert (with multiple cameras) for your ‘at home access’ for the price of a single ticket. Tickets are available online at kyso.org, by phone (859) 431-6216, or at the door. Czech us out!
