First up this week, Mel interviews J.C. Reedy, assistant principal of the Youth Performing Arts School in Jefferson Countyone of only 100 schools of its kind in the nation. YPAS trains high school students for further study and careers in the performing arts, offering courses in dance, theater acting, musical theater, vocal music, piano, concert band, concert orchestra, design, and production. Reedy also talks about an upcoming school production of The Outsiders.
Next, Louisville director and actor Barrett Cooper tells how he is taking historical reenactments in Kentucky out of the pioneer era and into the days of knights in shining armor. Barrett traveled to England to learn the art of historical interpretation from John Waller, master interpreter for the Royal Armouries, who is best known for his work with the Monty Python movies. Barrett will now train local actors to interpret medieval, Elizabethan, and other periods at the Frazier Historical Arms Museum, which opened in Louisville in May 2004. He is also associate director at Walden Theatre and performs the one-man show The Great Journey, about Louisville explorer William Clark, for the Filson Historical Society.
Throughout the program, new Louisville rock band Ultratone performs songs from its self-titled debut CD. Led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Joe Scheirich, Ultratone includes Mike McGinnis on guitar, John Hulcher on bass, Nick Hass on drums, and Krista Terhune providing backup vocals.
