Library and ETC “Theatre Book Club” begins new season Play discussion group meets October 13

The Santa Barbara Public Library System and Ensemble Theatre Company’s partner program, Theatre Book Club, will discuss Sweeney Todd, the Demon Butcher of Fleet Street, by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler, on Tuesday, October 13 at 5:30 pm. The group will meet in the Faulkner Gallery of the Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St. in Santa Barbara. Ensemble Theatre’s dramaturg, Anna Jensen, will lead a discussion of the play from a literary and dramatic standpoint. Copies of the play script are available for one-week checkout from the Central Library. The play will also run at the New Vic Theatre in Santa Barbara October 8 through October 25.

Theatre Book Club began in 2008, reading and discussing the plays that are produced by Ensemble Theatre Company, and welcomes newcomers. Ms. Jensen’s deep understanding of the plays provides insights and background that make the reading and watching of the play even more enjoyable and rewarding. Like all library programs, Theatre Book Club is free and open to the public.
