Words from the Woods: Jabberwocky

Words from the Woods: Jabberwocky
Lewis Carroll's wonderfully weird classic, Jabberwocky wields some serious heft for a "nonsense poem." It spins a story of ambiguous adventure; of dangers untold. Or maybe not. The beauty of this poem is that, whatever story you infer, it's exactly right. See what you think after experiencing this reading by Core Company Actor Nate Burger.

Words from the Woods: The World Is Too Much With Us
Any day is a good day to revisit the great romantic poets, and these strange days make this piece from William Wordsworth a timely choice.

Words from the Woods: Wisconsin

Words from the Woods: Wisconsin
For many around the country, Wisconsin exists as a vague, grassy expanse of cows and corn, dismissed as flyover country. But we know better. For Core Company Actor Tracy Michelle Arnold, her love of the Dairy State started with the land and stars, and blossomed with the prairies. In this poem, accompanied by lush images, she shares her deep attachment to this place in her own words.

Words from the Woods: A Love Letter to My Jules

Words from the Woods: A Love Letter to My Jules
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet has inspired myriad works of art, from songs (Mark Knopfler's "Romeo and Juliet") to musicals (West Side Story) to paintings (too many to count, but well worth a look). And poetry. Because poetry thrums in the heartbeats of all star-crossed lovers, and these two more than most. But let's put Romeo aside for a bit. Juliet deserves some words dedicated just to her story - the one that is and the one that might have been. In the still moments between scenes in 2014 when Core Company actor Melisa Pereyra played Juliet at APT, she penned her own love letter to this character loved by so many.

Words From the Woods: Grizzly

Words From the Woods: Grizzly
An ode to one specific dog that, it seems, is universal to the whole species, written by Eric Schabla, and read by Core Company Actor Kelsey Brennan. When we bring these living breathing, drooling balls of idiosyncrasies into our lives, they come with their share of quirks. But as anyone who's ever loved a dog knows, the quirks are the best part.
