Phi Beta Kappa Hosts 'Afternoon of Drama'
"An Afternoon of Drama" will be presented at the Country Club of North Carolina on Sunday, April 15, with a program in a lecture/ demonstration format sponsored by the Central Carolinas Association of Phi Beta Kappa alumni.
Two North Carolina teachers and directors of acting and their students will be featured. John Gulley teaches acting and directing at UNC-Greensboro and Joy Karcher teaches communications and acting at Sandhills Community college. The public is invited to attend the reception from 2 to 5 p.m.
At UNCG, Gulley has most recently directed "Macbeth," "The Crucible," and "Raisin in the Sun." As a free-lance professional director, he has directed off-Broadway and for a number of regional theaters. Karcher directed theater in Connecticut before moving to the Sandhills. In addition to teaching at SCC, Karcher is a director of the Sandhills Theatre Company, which most recently has presented dinner theater productions at local country clubs, the Pinehurst Fair Barn and local restaurants.
The afternoon will offer attendees the opportunity to see interesting dramatic scenes and monologues and to talk with the directors and the students. The PBK Association's motto is "Love of Learning is the Guide to Life."
To this end, the local association of alumni awards scholarships to high school and college students, and recognition awards to high school teachers. The association is a not-for-profit organization.
An hors d'oeuvres buffet and soft drinks will be served. A cash bar will be available.
