Are you as excited as we are for the reopening of our Ingleside campus? If the anticipation wasn’t already building, we’re here to crank it up with a special concert series that tracks the history of the McLean Community Center from its opening in 1975 until today… sorta. Come revisit a decade each week in the McLean Central Park Gazebo.

Superfly Disco
Sunday, Sept. 9, 5 p.m.
Put your bell bottoms on and dust off your Bee Gees records. The MCC opened its doors in 1975, and we’re sure it was just like Studio 54 at the groundbreaking. Help us recreate the ‘70s in McLean Central Park with this super fun tribute band. Video

So Fetch
Sunday, Sept. 30, 5 p.m.
We will make “fetch” happen! So Fetch is a 2000s tribute band (do the 2000s really already have a tribute band!?) with a set list of pop-punk, rap, rock, and pop hits from… ten years ago. It’s a thing.

The original 1990 movie forever changed how we see movies—and glasses of water. Come revisit (or discover) the Spielberg movie that spawned a whole army of sequels. (See what we did there?) Then come back on Saturday, Nov. 17, for “Hold on to Your Butts,” the ingenious and hilarious live, two-person-plus-Foley-artist scene-for-scene recreation of the movie.

Ulrich is a regular performer in the DC improv scene featured in the troupes King Bee, Nox! and Jive Turkey. He studied improvisational comedy at the Uprights Citizens Brigade and The Magnet Theater in New York, Improv Olympic and Annoyance Theater in Chicago and Los Angeles, and the Washington Improv Theater and DC Improv in Washington.

This master class will explore collaboration, trust and being in the moment for improv performers. Participants will learn a number of games you can play just about anywhere, learn how to develop scenes, create characters within seconds, and learn exercises to help create "group mind" to better work and act together. Expect a high energy and active session! No improv experience is required, but it is designed for 9th-12th graders who are on an improv team, who are involved in theatre or are interested in improvisation.

Some drawing experience necessary. Explore botanical or insect elements with your choice of watercolor, color pencils, ink or drawing pencils as a medium. Students are welcome to also bring in previous or current works for professional guidance. Please bring a bag lunch.  Instructor: Caroline Hottenstein.

Foley (or the creation of sound in film and on stage) is one of the most creative and fun ways to play with storytelling. In this workshop, families will explore the sounds we can make with our voices and with everyday objects to imitate sounds of the world. With a mix of demonstration, trial and error, and games, this hands-on workshop explores the ways Recent Cutbacks makes and use sound in their shows and how you can too!
