Milton Arts Guild will host its “Inspiration” art exhibit April 28-June 19, 2022 which will highlight works in multiple media created by the Guild’s artists. “Inspiration” is Milton Arts Guild’s third exhibition of the year, and its art will reflect anything that inspires the artists. Milton Arts hosts eight formal exhibits each year, in addition to special, seasonable events and “pop-up” exhibits at its 107 Federal Street Gallery.

 

“Inspiration,” like all Milton Arts Guild exhibits, is intended to reach out to the community through the shared experience of viewing the world through the eyes of the artist. More than 15 pieces of art–in diverse media created by diverse artists–will also engage the community to tap into their own creativity through other Milton Arts Guild activities, including classes.

Milton Arts Guild, located in historic downtown Milton, Delaware, celebrates creativity in all forms of visual arts by engaging the community through an array of educational opportunities, events, exhibitsand benevolent programs. Fueled by its volunteer members and supported by a large and diverse community locally and beyond, Milton Arts Guild welcomes everyone to explore the power of art and to inspire them in their own creativity.


 

Resident Ensemble Players (REP)
Yeah, Baby
Newark (Roselle Center for the Arts, University of Delaware)
"Yeah Baby" theater artwork by Theresa RebeckGOS

The Resident Ensemble Players (REP), the professional theatre company in residence at the University of Delaware, is thrilled to present a new cutting-edge comedy written by the exceptionally talented writer/director, Theresa Rebeck, Yeah, Baby (April 28–May 8). Theresa Rebeck is a familiar name to theatregoers from her work on Broadway (Mauritius, Dead Accounts, Bernhardt Hamlet, Seminar), off-Broadway (The Understudy, Downstairs, Seared), and as creator of NBC’s hit series SMASH. She has written Yeah Baby, a wild new comedy, specifically for the REP Acting Company. Yeah, Baby is the fourth premiere of Rebeck’s in Delaware at the REP, following O Beautiful, Fever, and a new version of The Bells.
“I’m thrilled to have been asked to do it,” says Rebeck. “I think the REP is astonishing. The company is so gifted–individually they are all wonderful actors, and they are all incredible comedians. As a unit, they are sort of beyond reckoning. It’s an astonishing opportunity for me to be able to walk into a unit like that.”
Yeah, Baby follows the absurdly careening day in the life of professional theatre artists. Stealing a page from Chekov and Pirandello, the REP company presents its own love letter to the theater and the courage it takes to make something out of nothing, during perplexing times. Hilarity arises in the struggle to confront the improbable as well as the impossible.
The Resident Ensemble Players (REP) is a professional theatre company in residence on the campus of the University of Delaware. The REP’s mission is to engage audiences throughout the tri-state region and beyond with frequent productions of outstanding classic, modern, and contemporary plays performed in a wide variety of styles that celebrate and demonstrate the range and breadth of an ensemble of nationally respected stage actors. The REP is committed to creating and expanding audiences for live theatre by offering a diversity of productions at low prices that enable and encourage the attendance of everyone in the region, regardless of background or income.
