Found Theatre Presents an All Dylan Evening To Benefit Interval House
2014-10-14 · By Editor
In observance of the Dylan Thomas Centennial on Sunday, October 26, folksinger/educator Ross Altman and the Found Theatre will host a very special celebration featuring the work of the brilliant Welsh poet and his superstar namesake, Bob Dylan (aka Bob Zimmerman).
This is a participatory event in which the public is invited to share a Thomas poem or a Dylan tune…or just come and enjoy the performances. Signups can be done in advance by calling 562/433-3363 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or at the event if slots are still available.
Los Angeles folk singer Ross Altman has a PhD in Modern Literature; when he left the classroom for the stage he turned the stage into a classroom. Every so often he produces literary events such as this to uphold what Matthew Arnold called the best that has been thought and said.
The Found’s Dylan Thomas Cenntennial coincides with October is Arts Month in Long Beach, as well as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Donations will be accepted at the door and 100% of funds raised will be donated to Interval House of Long Beach, which provides emergency aid and support for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
Come gather round people wherever you roam and celebrate two great poets and singers of song; a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rage, rage against the dying of the light.
