In collaboration with American Players Theatre (APT), Ten Chimneys Foundation will present A Conversation with Olympia Dukakis, on Thursday, March 24, at 7 p.m.
The Academy Award-winning actress Dukakis will take the stage at APT’s Touchstone Theatre, sharing anecdotes about her remarkable life and career and answering questions from the audience – a rare and intimate opportunity. APT artistic director Brenda DeVita said, “We are very excited that Ten Chimneys approached us to hold this conversation with Olympia Dukakis at APT. Three of our core company attended her master class last year and three others will be there this year. It’s a great opportunity for them to study with her, and we’re happy to partner with the Ten Chimneys Foundation. I can’t wait to introduce Olympia to APT and especially to our amazing audience.”
This collaboration with APT debuts Ten Chimneys Foundation’s ‘Conversation’ series at theatres across the country. Randy Bryant, president & CEO of Ten Chimneys Foundation, said of this new partnership, “I greatly appreciate American Players Theatre’s contribution to our theatre community. I’m looking forward to introducing Olympia, and her exciting life in the theatre, to their audience. I’m happy our first ‘Ten Chimneys Foundation Presents’ Conversation is with American Players Theatre. What a wonderful place to begin.” Tickets for the event are $50 and are on sale now.
