MARYSVILLE — With the final inspections for Phase I expected to be completed by Friday, April 11, the Marysville facility for the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts is anticipated to start hosting classes on Monday, April 21.

Scott Randall, president of the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts in Marysville, will serve as the instructor for the adult acting classes on Mondays from 7-9 p.m., and the class on mid-20th Century playwrights on Sundays from 7-9 p.m., for $25 a night.

Other courses are set to include piano for beginning and intermediate players, instructed by Stephanie Rose Bowsher on Monday afternoons and evenings by appointment; an “Acting Potpourri,” instructed by Steven Marlo on Tuesdays from 7-9 p.m., for $25 a night; and “Performing Shakespeare,” instructed by Jay Rairigh on Wednesdays from 7-9 p.m., also for $25 a night.

Scott and Beckye Randall, secretary of the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts in Marysville, invited current and prospective volunteers to an orientation and open house on Tuesday, April 8, at their facility, located at 1410 Grove St., to recruit enough crew members to help them present not only their upcoming classes, but also events such as the Spring Art Show on Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26, at that same facility.

“We’ll have 18 artists at the Spring Art Show, and they’ll all be juried entries,” Beckye Randall said. “There are lots of great crafters and craft shows already in Marysville, but this show will focus more on art.”

“It’s exciting to see this annual event evolve into an actual art show,” Scott Randall said. “Just as importantly, once people come into our facility, they’ll realize how much work we’ve put into this building. This thing hasn’t just been sitting stagnant. We’ve been preparing all along, and that labor will bear fruit in the dozen or so events that we have scheduled here within the next three to four months. Of course, a big part of that relies upon our volunteers, whether they’re manning our booth during the Strawberry Festival or handling the production aspects of the plays we hope to stage here starting this fall. We want to draw the community in, and make them part of what we’re doing.”
