MASON CITY — The second season of Glee North Iowa, a performing arts group featuring actors with disabilities, opens from 3-4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, at NIVC Services’ main office, 1225 S. Harrison Ave. (Industrial Park), in Mason City.
“Glee NI” will meet on the first and third Thursday of each month.
Last season, the actors learned about their speaking voices, expressions, blocking scenes, creating sets, props and costumes.
“It is our belief that participation will increase an individual’s confidence,” said Mickie Schuessler.
Schuessler, a director, teacher and choreographer, has many years of performance experience, including 25 years as director of the Studio of Performing Arts.
“There are very few performance groups featuring individuals with disabilities. I am so excited to have another year with these talented actors,” she said. “A performance group highlighting actors with special abilities has been a dream of mine.”
This first play, “The Kingdom of No-Where,” was presented in a one-act, one-show performance last April.
Call the office at 641-423-3301 to register.
NIVC Services is a nonprofit organization with offices at 1225 S Harrison Ave., JobLink offices and Affordables on Third Street and First Street, and Java Works Coffee Shop.
