Jack and Jill Digital Program


Published on

This "digital show program" was for the Ivy Players' theatre production of Jane Martin's romantic comedy, "Jack and Jill." Due to cast turnaround and an effort to green campus activities, I opted to create this digital program in lieu of paper versions. This had the added benefit of highlighting Psi Iota Xi Auditorium's technology (large screen and digital projector) and its potential as a rented space for theatre companies and event coordinators.

The flyer (first slide) was designed by an Ivy Tech student, as part of the Ivy Players' effort to create gradable material for professors outside of the theatre discipline. The flyer represents one of 15 created by a class in Graphic Design.

Psi Iota Xi Auditorium was renovated in 2010. Photographs, unless otherwise noted, are my own or in the public domain. Other materials are provided courtesy of Ivy Tech Office of Marketing and Communications, Kokomo Region.

Jack and Jill Digital Program

  1. 1.
  2. 2. “Love makes you do the Dance.”<br /> ~ The Ivy Players<br />
  3. 3. Meet the Cast.<br />
  4. 4. Anna Ely-Baxter<br />
  5. 5. Anna Ely-Baxter<br />(General Studies Major)<br />Anna is a veteran actress of children’s and adult theatre. She appeared as the title characters in The Real Story of Little Red Riding Hood and Pocahontas for Curtain Call Theatre for Children. She also performed in Kokomo Civic Theatre’s Footloose. Anna is living proof good things come in small packages. Very, very small packages. But she owns it. This one time, she totally took out a bear. A real one. An avid outdoorswoman, Anna would like to find her “mountain man.” If you have what it takes (a beard and flannel shirt) give her a call! <br />
  6. 6. Lauren Gray<br />
  7. 7. Lauren Gray<br />(Paramedic Science Major)<br />Lauren has been a professional actress for many years. Her credits include Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Kate in Taming of the Shrew, and Doreen in the one-act “Sorry,” all for the Kokomo Summer Drama Camp. By the way, her Dad is Kokomo Police. Her Mom is FBI. If that doesn’t make you pee yourself, then you may be the one. Men who cannot clean and reassemble a Glock pistol in under 57 seconds need not apply. Other than that, she’s willing to take a chance, guys!<br />
  8. 8. Zachariah Moore<br />
  9. 9. Zachariah Moore<br />(Criminal Justice Major)<br />“Zach Attack” was with the Ivy Players from the beginning. He will soon move on to a four-year college, to pursue training in Stage Management. He appeared in the title role of The Little Prince two years ago. But don’t let that scare you away, ladies! There’s nothing little about this prince. He’s a 6’2” pro wrestling fan. When he “lays the smack down” – you’ll like it! Could you be his tag team partner? Ring the bell, and give Zach a call!<br />
  10. 10. Megan Myers<br />
  11. 11. Megan Myers<br />(Ivy Tech Alumna, Psychology Major at IUK)<br />Megan is a veteran actress from Culver Community High School. Last summer, she appeared as Hippolyta and Titania in the Kokomo Summer Drama Camp’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. So, the question is… Chinese? Mexican? Some sort of Australian? Who knows – and that’s what’s great about her. She’s looking for someone who will “pamper, but play.” Could you be him? …Maybe she’s…Puerto Rican…?<br />
  12. 12. Gabriel Warr<br />
  13. 13. Gabriel Warr<br />(Accounting Major)<br />This is Gabe’s first production with the Ivy Players, and his first time on stage. A stand-up comic by nature, he is also fiercely loyal to his fellow actors. He enjoys long walks with Suzie, his pot-bellied pig. Gabe likes tall girls with blue eyes, but he’s also willing to “take a chance” with someone special he finds equally funny and inspiring. Could Gabe be that special match for you? Seriously, he’s shirtless. Who wouldn’t want that? I’m a straight guy, and even I want that. Come on.<br />
  14. 14. Katherine Woessner<br />
  15. 15. Katherine Woessner<br />(Secondary Education Major)<br />Katherine is a veteran of the Ivy Players. She appeared in Movers and Shakers on this stage last year. She is also a professional clown with the Peru Circus. No kidding! Katherine is sweet, funny, and sensitive, and she’s looking for someone to “laugh and love with.” And you can’t miss her laugh. I mean, it sounds like a dying gorilla. Or maybe several animals dying at once. It depends on how drunk she is. Could you be her funny man? <br />
  16. 16. Meet the Crew.<br />
  17. 17. CREW<br />BOARD OPERATOR & MAKEUP DESIGNER<br />Brynn Cline (Accounting Major)<br />BOX OFFICE<br />Jeremy Sumpter(Early Childhood Major)<br />PROGRAM GRAPHIC by<br />Josh Hall (Graphic Design Major)<br />
  18. 18. Paul “Spike” WilsonDirector<br />Spike is the current Director of the Ivy Players, and Adjunct Professor of Theatre as Ivy Tech. A professional theatre artist, Jack and Jill marks his 53rd production as a director. He will receive his PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies from the University of Pittsburgh in the Fall of 2011. And he is so very, very alone. I mean, look at how much time this guy has. Really sad. Think about it. No, I know, but, please, think about it. You could do worse.<br />

  28. 28. About this Production<br />All of the cast and crew are Ivy Tech students (with the exception of one alumna). This project is on a larger scale than seen before in the Kokomo Region. Luke Ward and his Graphic Design class inserted the flyer, program, and mailer designs into their class. The 3 sections of Theatre Appreciation throughout the region have also been involved as part of their class work. In other words, the Ivy Player's Jack and Jill has had strong curricular benefits throughout for all the students involved. As this program continues, it will bring even more curricular benefits, supplementing the education of students, and giving our Humanities, Trade and Vocational programs highly practical avenue of exploration.<br />
  29. 29. About the Ivy Players<br />The Ivy Players was founded at Ivy Tech-Peru, as an extracurricular theatre, by Betty-Joyce Surface. Their home stage is here – the Psi Iota Xi Auditorium. The Ivy Players is open to all Ivy Tech students (current and alumni) who have an interest in the art and process of theatre. No experience is necessary. The Ivy Players’ mission is to create theatre that supplements the education of Ivy Tech students, in whatever course of study they pursue.<br />
