Thrice to Mine

Thrice to Mine

Friday and Saturday / October 25-26, 2019 / 8:00 PM

$25 / $20 Studio@620 Members

Written and Performed by Roxanne Fay

The Studio@620 welcomes Roxanne Fay and her latest one woman work, "Thrice to Mine". An epic, earthly yet mystical adventure of a woman's triumphant survival in the 11th century, "Thrice to Mine" was created at Hawthornden Castle in Lasswade, Scotland. With echos of Shakespeare, this play thrills with a story that diverges significantly from the one we know from Macbeth. This self described character is the "Daughter of a prince. Widow of a king. Mother of a king. Witch. Murderer. The Creator of Kings. The dowager Queen". Come witness Roxanne Fay bring this complex role to life.

Season 11

The Radio Theatre Project at The Studio@620 begins an 11th Season of original radio plays on Monday October 28, 2019!
As is our tradition, the first performance gives a nod to Halloween Haunting. “Hurst of Hurstcote” by Elizabeth Salazar has ghosts, a spooky English manor, love, suspicion and jealousy. A favorite, returning playwright, William Ivor Fowkes, presents “Miss Peddy & Grace”. It follows a trail of macabre and mysterious deaths, with two very intriguing characters.

Sugar Cane

Sugar Cane

Wednesday / November 13, 2019 / 7:00 PM

$10 in advance / $12 at the door

Jazz, Afro-Carribean, Funk, and Dub

Sugar Cane is a collective of diverse musicians, based in the Tampa Bay region, rooted firmly
in the traditions of jazz, funk, and Afro-Caribbean music. All throughout the Caribbean and
Latin America perhaps no other crop symbolized the blood, toil, and resilience of the African
slave, the indigenous peoples, and the migrant worker more than sugar cane (or caña in
Spanish). Like the rum distilled from the sweet molasses, the music of this region is the
powerful silver lining in an otherwise violent and painful history. United by a deep sense of
groove, this adventurous ensemble honors an ancestral legacy of music and culture while
adapting these traditions for a new generation of conscious listeners.
