"Joy in the Morning" with Robin Givens at Manatee Players
The play, with cast coordination by Manatee Players’ Producing Artistic Director Rick Kerby, will be work shopped and directed by Ms. Givens during the month of July at the Manatee Players.
Performances at the Manatee Players will be held at 7:30 p.m. on August 2 and at 8 p.m. on August 3 as a benefit for the Manatee Players. A limited number of Preferred Seating tickets will be available for each evening which include a private talk-back.
Preferred Seating tickets are $50 per person. All other seats are Adult tickets at $26, Students at $13 and Teachers at $15. Tickets are available by calling the box office or online. Ms. Givens will host a reception after the final performance. The next production of the play will be in Toronto, Canada in October. The script was originally presented ten years ago in a play reading at Carnegie Hall in New York.
During her month-long stay in Bradenton, Ms Givens will be presenting a workshop two days a week for two hours each day at the Palmetto Boys and Girls Club. The course, entitled The Art of Living through Acting, is open to teens and preteens. “It is all about confidence building,” said Givens. Thirty young people will be given the opportunity learn and feel better about themselves through improvisation and rehearsed scenes.
