Stage played reading with local students slated tonight

Express Staff Writer

There’s a wizard in the valley named Gary Hoffman. He’s the man behind the Royal Larkspur Play Troupe, which has initiated classic play readings at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Ketchum, and attempted a staged performance of Samuel Beckett’s "Waiting for Godot" this past summer. But the best trick he’s performed thus far has been melding students from The Community School and the Wood River High School for a staged reading tonight of George Bernard Shaw’s "Arms and the Man."

It was an opportunity for students "to participate in theater without the whole expense and be able to do more classics—it’s the essence of theater," said Deb Bohrer, the Wood River High School’s drama advisor. "It’s a wonderful blend of the two schools."

Participating in the reading are Community School students Casey Anderson, Emily Dreyfuss and Chad Montgomery. The WRHS students are Adam Bohrer, Sarah Browning, Collin Kinder, Jennifer Peak and Dan Moore.

The free reading, with discussion to follow, is tonight at 6:30 in the Wood River High School Auditorium.

"It’s neat to have them working together," said Bohrer, "It’s hard to bridge those gaps between the schools. This is a nice way to do it."
