The Onomatopoeia Lab Experience


The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company is proud to announce its newest adventure, The Onomatopoeia Lab Experience! The Onomatopoeia Lab Experience is essentially unique theatre classes meant to help develop performers both artistically & professionally. The course is shaped as a theatre laboratory because we wish to create, as Stanislavski put it “neither a full-fledged theatre nor a school for beginners, but a laboratory for the experiments of more or less mature actors.” (Stanislavski, My Life in Art 1926).


The Onomatopoeia Lab Experience focuses on using theatre games & exercises to help organically create scenes & monologues into dynamic, passionate performance pieces. Using techniques developed by Spolin, Boal, Bogart, Miesner, Stanislavski & more our classes will seamlessly combine classic techniques with modern sensibilities. Our goal is not only to teach performers these games and exercises, but also how to practically apply them to text and performances for the stage & film. Each class session last for 6 weeks and performers will focus on three different performance styles: Realism, Non-Realism & Classical.


Each class session also concludes with a final "Showcase" performance night consisting of a series of short 10 minute scenes / performances. This is a great opportunity for class members to share the work they have developed over the course with directors, agents & other industry people as well as family & friends.

The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company


The primary goal of The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company is to create theatre with sound.  Any and all types of sound!   Whether it is music, noise or symphony of emotions pouring from an actor’s soul we aim to create theatre that must be heard to really be seen!   The second goal of The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company is to create theatre that not only entertains its audience but educates and inspires it as well.  We want our work to always have a positive view of race, gender, sexual orientation and “the underdog”.  We don’t want our audience to just talk about what they heard after one of our shows.  We want them to think about how it inspires them to make a difference in the world.  And we want them to think about how love and friendship can overcome hatred and fear.

The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company is proud to be a Resident Theatre Company at The Gene Frankel Theatre!


 


The Gene Frankel Theatre


The Gene Frankel Theatre has remained steadfast since Gene Frankel founded the theatre in 1949; finding and cultivating an audience that can share with us the discovery and excitement of theatre. Currently with Gail Thacker at the helm The Gene Frankel Theatre is still vibrant with classes and revolutionary theatre.  Our goal is to keep the legacy of Gene Frankel alive by nurturing new talents that voice who we are today. We are looking to give a home to artists that cultivate a theater that speaks not only of an idealistic socio-political change – but a personal change, the only truly manageable change that can lead to a new and better social, political, economic world. The work that has come from this venue for the last 63 years has had civil rights and progressive thinking at its core. Today this is more relevant and necessary than ever. We are looking to reach out to our community and invite its people in their whole to celebrate new thinking, new ideas and a deeply emotional positive change. Through an evening at the theater or an afternoon of a children’s workshop – the GFT will be a haven for visual art, performance and discussion in a community that is quickly growing commercially and in our hope; culturally, intellectually and spiritually as well.
