June 5 - 28, 2015

By Vicki Caroline Cheatwood

Sponsored by TACA and The President’s Circle

Local playwright Vicki Caroline Cheatwood brings us  Manicures & Monuments , the hilarious and heartwarming tale of the residents of an Oklahoma nursing home and the young manicurist-in-training, Janann, who comes to volunteer. Janann soon clashes with former Army nurse Bailey, one of the elderly residents. Tempers flare as the two women collide in their struggle to understand each other, but eventually discover the true meaning of what it means to care for someone.

Parental Guidance Suggested: An article on WaterTower's After-School Drama Program

Addison, TX – A significant portion of work as a teaching artist involves mentoring and working with students, so much that the relationship between the teaching artist and parents of the child can be overlooked. The idea for this article emerged after speaking with Janeth Farnsworth, Education and Community Services Manager at WaterTower Theatre in Addison. Initially, I thought this column would just discuss their education programs, specifically elementary afterschool programs. However, an interesting conversation on the role of the parent emerged.

WaterTower has held a strong partnership with Anne Frank Elementary for more than a decade and in recent years added a couple of programs in other local schools including George Bush Elementary and Spring Creek Elementary. Farnsworth states: “We emphasize life skills and theatre skills. A lot of them, especially lower socio-economic, haven’t ever really heard of theatre, done theatre, seen theatre before. And (we are) also helping them do other things like following directions, (gaining) self-confidence, using our imagination, and working with others.”
