Arcis Saxophone Quartet

Tuesday February 22, 2022 7:00pm Meeteetse School Cafeteria

Tickets at the door $10 each

These four young musicians from Munich possess charismatic and authentic stage presence and set audiences aflame with their spark-throwing enthusiasm and burning passion for this rare form of chamber music.
In their highly professional, exact interpretations, Arcis Saxophone Quartet explores the relationship between individual expressivity and interwoven ensemble performance. In doing so, they captivate listeners with their joy of playing and expressive depth. Their eagerness to communicate with each other gives a sense that they are performing with one unified musical voice. The resulting effect is far-reaching sonically and musically, with the saxophone’s entire spectrum of color coming to light.

The range of these saxophones is amazing!

Holiday Home Tour Canceled

With the current increase of COVID cases, the PCAC Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 Holiday Home Tour. We are sorry to have to table the fund raiser again this year but feel it unwise with the current uptick of the virus. We sincerely hope next year will improve.

Jen (Kat Tyler) returns to her small Wyoming hometown after an eye-opening first year of college. She wants a different life than her family had, but she’s decided that Wyoming might not be so bad after all. Her best friend Amber (Lea Bergman) can’t wait to leave. The one thing they agree on is that their small town has never felt so small. Inspired by Wyoming’s history of trailblazing women, Jen buckles down to create social progress, change local politics, or if nothing else, show her mom (Anne Mason) that a rough-talking, hard-working Wyoming woman can shift the way the wind is blowing.
AND THE WIND HOWLS is “incredibly relevant to our state today. It speaks to the lives and futures of our state’s young people, gives what I know to be an accurate depiction of life in a smaller Wyoming town, and uses the empowerment of an all-woman cast to ask some of the tough questions that Wyoming needs to grapple with as we move forward. I strongly feel that this is that this is a piece of art worth supporting, and Relative Theatrics is the best theatre company in the state to put it on.” – Fred Schmechel, Impact 307 Assistant Director ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT
Leean Kim Torske is a Chicago-based, Wyoming-at-heart playwright, dramaturg, discussion facilitator and writing instructor from Casper, Wyoming. She earned her MFA in Playwriting from Ohio University and her MA in Literary Studies from the University of Wyoming. Her play Pity Party is featured in Smith & Kraus’s anthology 105 Five-Minute Plays for Study and Performance. Leean was inaugural director and designer of the Russ Tutterow Fellowship at Chicago Dramatists. She is currently the Associate Publicist at Steppenwolf Theatre Company, where she has facilitated post-show discussions for more than eight years. Leean is thrilled to be working with Relative Theatrics to develop AND THE WIND HOWLS. Many thanks to Anne Mason for her continued support.

Relative Theatrics strives to present thought-provoking theatre that examines the joining qualities of the human race. Taking artistic risk, we provide a community gathering place where thoughts can be exchanged about society, culture, and the power of creativity.
Founded by Laramie native Anne Mason, Relative Theatrics has been bringing live theatre to South East Wyoming since the summer of 2013. We believe that theatre is a forum with the power to illuminate the binding qualities of humanity and reinforce the ideals that, as a society, we have values that pose as common ground and emotions that relate us to one another.

Relative Theatrics kicks off their 8th Season: A NEW WAY FORWARD with a hybrid theatre/film production of AND THE WIND HOWLS by Leean Kim Torske, September 4th-13th, 2020, virtually. The development team for this contemporary Wyoming play includes Anne Mason, Jared Mohr-Leiva, Lea Bergman, and Kat Tyler. This World Premiere is commissioned by Relative Theatrics and The Wyoming Arts Council. AND THE WIND HOWLS is supported in part by grants from the Wyoming Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, Wyoming Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
AND THE WIND HOWLS is filmed using a point-of- view shot where the audience experiences each scene from one perspective at a time. Point-of-view shots are a creative form of filming to maintain the visual intimacy for the audience that they would otherwise experience when viewing a live Relative Theatrics production in the Gryphon Theatre. Private group viewing and discussion sessions with the artistic team are available for purchase! Contact for more details.
