Challenging Gender Stereotypes at the JMG, Smith College

At the John M. Greene Performing Arts Center- Smith College:
Save this date, and spread the word!

In an effort to raise awareness about the Ada Comstock program and to foster a general sense of connectedness throughout the campus, especially between the traditional students and Ada Comstock students, we are planning an event at 8PM on March 27th at JMG showcasing All The Kings Men (ATKM), an award winning, all female, physical theatre ensemble that has been performing original, cabaret style club shows and workshops for seven years, throughout the U.S. and Canada in schools, theaters and educational conferences.

All The Kings Men push boundaries and stereotypes of gender, and explore this identity through comedic and dramatic storytelling, set to music. Utilizing physical theatre, dance, comedy, lip-synchs and character based sketch work, ATKM puts on a comic and thought provoking show, where women play all the roles. Through creative storytelling, movement and elaborate costuming, All The Kings Men custom-create their scenes from each individual song choice. With a catalogue of over 100 sketches, no show is ever completely the same; as individual as the scenes that go into it. In any given night you can see an eclectic collaboration of dance, characters, impersonation, comedy and drama that is always abundant in entertainment, as well as educational value.
Please join us for an exciting night!

Tickets available anytime at Northampton Box Office:

Everyone Else- $15
Tickets also available at Smith College Campus Center for students 11am-1pm: Feb 25-26; Mar 1, 4-5; Mar 8-9; Mar 22-24, 26
