The results of a Live Arts program to train teenagers in the various aspects of theater is culminating this month with presentation of The Servant of Two Masters. The Teen Theater Team is Live Arts most intensive and focused training program for young people between the ages of 14 and 19.

The Servant of Two Masters is an 18th century comedy by Carlo Goldoni and for almost 300 years audiences have recognized themselves in its timeless characters and situations. Clever servants, grasping masters, lovelorn youth, buckled swashes, drawn swords, interrupted weddings, slapsticks, and chases are all in day’s work for Truffaldino, the titular servant. With rich language and physical hijinks, our teens will draw on their clown training to make a show that leaps from silly to sublime. The play runs on Live Arts Upstage Theater from April 20 to May 5, 2007.

I stopped by Live Arts to talk about the play with director Daria Okugawa and produced this five minute feature.
