For the first time in Bloomington history, MCCT will attempt to read the complete dramatic works of William Shakespeare… and we invite the entire Bloomington community to join us!

As Bloomington’s only all-volunteer community theatre troupe, we make participation in the art of theatre open to anyone and everyone , regardless of experience or background. The 25th Anniversary Shakespeare in the Park is our largest participation opportunity yet — the chance for potentially hundreds of local theatre-lovers to engage with the work of one of history’s greatest cultural figures.

For twenty-five years, Monroe County Civic Theater has presented the works of William Shakespeare, free and open to the public.

To celebrate this achievement, MCCT will hold a week-long festival during which the complete dramatic works will be presented as readings, in a variety of venues throughout the city of Bloomington. The festival will culminate with our mainstage production of Hamlet, directed by board vice-president Gregory Morales.

June 1:
9:00 am “Comedy of Errors”
11:30 am “King Henry IV, Part 1”
2:00 pm “The Tempest”
4:30 pm “Antony and Cleopatra”
7:00 pm “Romeo and Juliet”

On display in the Upper Loft Gallery June 1- 30, pastel & oil paintings by Brown County Art Guild member artists,Roger Ambrosier & Joel Knapp. Reception: Second Saturday, June, 14, 5-8 pm during the Village Art Walk.

About Roger Ambrosier:
Roger Ambrosier was born in Maysville, Missouri and now resides in Evergreen, Colorado. He studied at the Northwest Missouri State University (BS) and the University of Colorado (Boulder), the Metropolitan State College (Denver) and received his Masters Degree from the University of Northern Colorado (Greeley).
Roger’s artwork can be found in the Brown County Art Guild, the American Legacy Gallery (Kansas City, MO), and the Strecker-Nelson Gallery (Manhattan, KS), as well as in museum and private collections. He is a signature member of the Colorado Pastel Society, and a Master Pastelist with the Mid- American Pastel Society.
Ambrosier has participated in many exhibits throughout the Midwest and Western United States, including the Denver Art Museum in Colorado. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions many times throughout his career. His work won “Best of Show” awards at the Mid-American National Pastel Exhibition at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum in St. Joseph, MO (2007); the Colorado Pastel Society Mile High National Exhibition, Aspen, CO (2007); the Mountainside Miniature Exhibition, Foothills Art Center, Golden, CO (2005); and the Western Spirit Exhibit (Pastel Category), Cheyenne Frontier Museum, Cheyenne, WY. Roger has been a member of the Brown County Art Guild since 2004.
About Joel Knapp:
Joel Knapp is “a painter in motion,” restless to capture nature in all its moods and seasons. He is devoted to plein air painting because of its urgency and authenticity. He feels that the essence of a place may only be captured by the artist experiencing it directly. So, he may be found traveling in his camper with easel and paints deployed in front of mountains, rivers, and landscapes of all types, and in cities painting sidewalk cafes and cityscapes both by daylight and streetlight.
Joel and his wife travel throughout North America and Europe attempting to capture nature’s moods firsthand. His award-winning oil paintings have been displayed at the Hoosier Salon and numerous other art shows and “paint-outs” and are a permanent part of corporate and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Joel uses lively color with oil paint in an impressionistic style to capture a feeling of time and place as he sees it. He says of plein air painting, “It’s such an honest approach to see the light as it hits the scene. The wind in your face; flies in your paint and two hours to create a painting; one must paint fast and loose, go in with your feelings, but using your brain and experience to balance colors, to vibrate and sing, Hallelujah!”
Joel has been a member artist with the Brown County Art Guild since 2011.
Artist’s Statement: “I love to paint and share my blessings with you. I paint both plein air and in the studio. My wife and I love to travel and share our adventures with others through my paintings. I hope you enjoy what you see and experience.”
