One-Woman Play Set in Chapel Hill
Saturday, May 30, and Sunday, May 31, Deep Dish Theater Company will present its annual "Side Dish" fundraising benefit. This year's event will feature Deep Dish favorite Katja Hill performing her acclaimed one-woman show, "Cornucopia of Me."
Saturday evening will begin with a champagne reception at 7:30 p.m., followed by the show at 8 p.m. and a post-show reception; Sunday afternoon's reception will begin at 1:30 p.m., with the performance time of 2 p.m.
"Cornucopia of Me" is Katja Hill's hilarious and unconventional look at her own misadventures as a struggling artist. Awarded Independent Weekly's Best Original Script, Best Production, Best Direction, and Best Lead Performance, it will anchor the Side Dish festivities, which will also include light fare provided by Meadowmont's Azure Grill.
"We are always thrilled to have Katja performing on our stage," said Deep Dish Artistic Director Paul Frellick. "But this piece will be a special treat for our audience. The ingenious twist it puts on one-person "confessionals" puts it in a class by itself, and Katja is at the top of her form as both writer and performer -- you don't get much better than that."
Katja Hill has been a favorite Deep Dish performer since appearing in "Arms and the Man" in the theater's inaugural season. Since then she has performed in many other Deep Dish productions as well as in other area theaters.
A graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts, Hill serves as associate managing director of Manbites Dog Theater and teaches at Carrboro ArtsCenter's Youth Performing Arts Conservatory. She will next appear in Tennessee Williams' "Summer and Smoke" at Deep Dish.
