A Moveable Feast Presentation “From Peril to Promise: The Social Responsiveness of American Theater in the 1930s and 40s.” Armstrong State University will host a free performance/presentation by Pamela Sears, an associate professor of Theatre and Acting, who will discuss the playwrights, theater artists and composers of the 1930s and ‘40s. By creating inspirational, socially responsive work, they offered theatergoers an experience that encouraged new perspectives and lightened the burden of the day-to-day realities of economic depression and world war.
During the discussion, a company of Armstrong’s musical and theatrical performers and directors will explore scenes from the period’s popular dramatic works by Tennessee Williams, Rodgers and Hammerstein and Kaufman and Hart, demonstrating how these players promoted stability and hope during this extraordinary period in American theater.
