Throwback Thursday 05-21-2020: A Little Bit of Broadway "Upon a scene of dazzling charm and beauty, with a volume of entrancing melody swinging in the air, the final curtain descended last night upon Wilmington's amateur hit of the season - 'A Little Bit of Broadway.'" These are the words that appeared in the Wilmington Morning Star on May 19, 1923 describing a locally produced dramatic presentation. The dramatic and musical review was written and directed by Wilmington natives Florence and Bessie Burkheimer, starred local talent, and was produced by the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Of the more than 100 members of the cast and crew, all were from Wilmington. Meeting with rave reviews, the Morning Star continued, "Unquestionably, from all points of view, it was one of the greatest achievements among the many that this city has witnessed, in the way of productions which ranks closely with the professional." The Thalian Association, a series of amateur theatrical companies, has called the Port City home since the late 18th century. The organization was reportedly established in 1788 after a visit from a traveling professional theatre company inspired the creation of the city's own theatrical company. The name of the Thalian Association was derived from Thalia, (also spelled Thaleia) who is the Greek muse of comedy.

"Term 1 was a drop into the unknown, approaching theatre creation through movement and the body was a new approach for me. With this came a lot of challenges but a whole lot more fantastic moments where I felt part of something I never felt part of before. It has started a process of self-confidence in my own body and ability. "I have never used my knee to move a song and tell a story" "Its opened up ways of creating and devising in a way I haven't felt before. It has made me a braver performer and hopefully a more playful and inquisitive director, I also feel more in my own body." Term 1 Play Machine has come to an end with the hilarious "Machiney awards". Term 2 will commence 12th January! Photography by Niall McAleer Arts Council of Northern Ireland Crescent Arts Centre Thrive NI TheatreNOW #momentum #artistsfirst #playmachine
