The Hamilton-Gibson Women’s Project is now in its fourth year. It was inspired by the number of women who auditioned for roles that far exceeded those available in the various plays produced by Hamilton-Gibson Productions, a community theater arts group based in Wellsboro.

In keeping with Hamilton-Gibson’s mission to provide opportunities for people of all ages to enrich and empower their lives through community performing arts, the Women’s Project was specifically designed to offer different types of events so women could participate in all aspects of performance.

Continuing with that concept, David Hugo, a professional actor and university professor, will present two acting workshops for women and their daughters, ages 12 to 17 on Saturday, May 18 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro. The deadline to register is Monday, April 1. Both workshops are for beginners with no acting experience to veteran actors.

If the classes are not filled by April 1, this opportunity will be extended to include registration by men and their sons, ages 12 to 17 as well as women and their daughters until Thursday, April 18.

The Fundamentals of Acting workshop will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 18. Participants will work on both an improv and an open scene to develop a way to approach text through the Stanislavsky system. As a result of this work those taking part will understand the basic idea of achieving an acting objective through physical and psychological action.

From 1 to 3 p.m. will be the Character Tool Kit workshop. Participants will continue to work on the improv and open scene but this time will look at creating a character through the use of body centers and physical choices. This will involve techniques in physicality, voice, text analysis, and backstory work.

The cost is $10 to attend one of the workshops and $15 for both. There are five free scholarships available for adults. Children 12 to 17 will be admitted free if accompanied by a parent.

To register for one or both workshops or to request a scholarship to attend for free, women are asked to call (570) 724-2079 or email on or before Monday, April 1. Those who are bringing their daughters to attend for free are reminded to register them as well.

“These two workshops offer a unique opportunity to work with someone who has performed on Broadway and acted professionally for many years, and now works full-time directing and training young adults to be professional actors,” said Thomas Putnam, artistic director for Hamilton-Gibson Productions. “This is a chance for more experienced actors to refine their skills and receive some helpful feedback by trying new ways of working on their acting and character building skills. Likewise, for anyone brand new to acting it’s great to give it a try in a welcoming setting with an experienced teacher.”

Since 2007, Hugo has been a professor in the Theater Department at Long Island University’s C. W. Post campus in Brookville, N.Y. He teaches freshman acting and all of the musical theater acting courses. Hugo has performed regionally, on national tours and on Broadway in shows such as “Jekyll and Hyde”, “Iolanthe”, “Into the Woods”, and had a stellar 12-year career with “Les Misérables” portraying Grantaire in the final Broadway cast.

Hugo was on tour with the Broadway production of Les Misérables when he developed a love for teaching through the workshops he gave at high schools and universities across America, Asia and Canada. In 2005, he decided to leave the tour to pursue a master’s degree in theater. He holds an M.A. in Theater from Long Island University’s C. W. Post, a B.F.A. in acting from Syracuse University and an Associate Degree in Music from Onondaga Community College.

These workshops are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

At 6 p.m. this coming Tuesday, April 2, Trout Unlimited Tiadaghton Chapter #688 will meet at the Wellsboro Community Center at 3 Queen Street in Wellsboro.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Participants do not have to be a member to attend.

Beginning at 7 p.m., Kimberlie Gridley, Tioga County Planning Commission planning specialist, will talk about the importance of riparian buffers and provide details about numerous planting projects this spring. A riparian buffer is a strip of trees and shrubs, usually species native to this area, that protects water quality and provides habitat, food and protection for birds, mammals and other wildlife, prevents soil erosion and provides habitat and food for aquatic bugs, amphibians and fish as well as shade for streams, which keeps water temperatures cooler helping aquatic creatures thrive.

A multifunctional riparian forest buffer can also provide food and floral harvests for humans. The Pa. Department of Natural Resources and PennVest have recently teamed up to offer funding to organizations and individuals that would like to use some native and cultivated species along streams and rivers to develop emerging markets and value-added products such as jams and jellies, fruit wines, nut products, and woody florals. Gridley will talk about what she has learned about this program and the developing opportunities for this area. Those attending the meeting are invited to share their experiences and ideas.

A native of Wellsboro, Gridley began her career in natural resources as an intern in the Washington Conservation Corps in 1999, working with dairy farmers to establish riparian buffers and improve stream water quality. She has continued to work in the fields of Forest Buffer Research and Ecosystem Monitoring (USDA Forest Service), Habitat Restoration Project Management and Watershed Recovery Coordination (State and Tribal agencies), and Low Impact Development Program Coordination and Education (WA State University). In 2016, she returned to Tioga County. Her work as the planning specialist focuses on the nexus of natural resource management and community and economic development.

The meeting, led by President Jere White, will open at 6 p.m. with a discussion of upcoming events and updates on various projects, such as the chapter’s Fly Fishing Film Tour 2019 fundraiser being held at the Deane Center in Wellsboro this Saturday, March 30; fly tying classes for beginners given by chapter members on five consecutive Thursday nights, from Feb. 21 to March 21; chapter participation in Springfest 2019; the last free Flies and Lies Social on March 16 at the Wellsboro Community Center; Pine Creek Watershed Council projects and an update on the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s Women’s Initiative.

White will also ask for volunteers to help with the Keystone select float stocking on Fridays, April 5 and 26. Volunteers will meet at the Darling Run p.arking lot on both dates.

The next Chapter #688 meeting will be on Tuesday, May 7 at the Wellsboro Community Center.

For more information, email Jere White at or call him at (570) 662-2167.
