FSU/Asolo Conservatory students Josh James, Lisa Woods and Kelsey Petersen are in The Water Engine, which opens in The Jane B. Cook Theatre at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts on November 4, 2014.
The Water Engine, a play within a play, is the story of a young inventor who has found a way to run an engine on distilled water. But the young inventor’s dreams are thwarted when he comes up against the rival oil company whose business is threatened. The show runs through November 23 and is directed by FSU/Asolo Conservatory Director Greg Leaming.
David Mamet’s The Water Engine (Nov. 5-23), Shakespeare’s As You Like It (Dec. 31-Jan. 18), and a rarity for The Conservatory: a musical! Title of Show will be on stage Feb. 18 through March 8. The Conservatory rounds out the season with Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, April 8-26.
The FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training is a three-year graduate program culminating in a Master of Fine Arts degree. Only twelve students are chosen each year from the thousands who audition nationwide to work in a program that combines rigorous classroom training with guest artist workshops and professional production experience.
