The Institute of Musical Arts (IMA) is pleased to invite you to our seventh (7th) season of programming which has hosted over forty storytelling concerts, as well as the “Tell Me A Story” workshop in the Ray G. Clark Theater. Since our inaugural 2010-2011 season we have been proud to present a wide array of storytellers, some of whom have traveled from as far away as Maine and Australia, to share their gifts with you, our loyal and appreciative audience. Under the stewardship of our Creative Director, Barbara H. Clark, we have also launched the careers and cheered the performances of Women’s Voices, our own house ensemble of storytellers.
The intimate (50 seat) Ray G. Clark theater is ideal for live theatrical performances, storytelling concerts, poetry readings, student recitals and acoustical musical performances. Storyteller/playwright, Leslie Perry selected the theater for the production and presentation of his play ”The Muse”.
With it’s raised thrust stage, and traditional 1920s California-Spanish proscenium styled arch, it invokes a classical, old-school theater tradition . The theater auditorium and adjacent reception hall, are available for performances and rehearsals. Audio or video recordings and still photographs of performances are also available; and our catering staff can provide snacks and refreshments before or after your event.
