Angels in America Part I at Shenandoah Conservatory

Angels in AmericaThis weekend, Shenandoah Conservatory, part of Shenandoah University in conservative Winchester, Va., mounts a production of the first part of Tony Kushner’s award-winning 1993 masterpiece, Angels in America, Part 1. Subtitled “A Gay Fantasia on National Themes,” it focuses specifically on the impact and stigma of AIDS in the 1980s. Matt Kittlaus, who directs the play’s eight actors (and seven understudies), most of them seniors at the university, told Metro Weekly the students have shown extra enthusiasm for the project. “They came in to rehearsals [with their lines] almost completely memorized, off-book,” said Kittlaus. “So we’ve been able to spend our time creating the very emotional moments that take place within the play.” Thursday, Nov. 18, to Saturday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m. Also Sunday, Nov. 21, at 2:30 p.m. Glaize Studio Theatre on the main campus of Shenandoah University, Winchester, Va. Tickets are $10. Call 540-665-4569 or visit conservatoryperforms.org.
