Third Avenue PlayWorks (TAP) is launching a series, Door County Stories, to profile Door County residents telling their own personal stories. The series’ curators and hosts will be Robert Boles and James Valcq, TAP’s co-artistic directors; Stephanie Trenchard, co-owner of Popelka Trenchard Glass Fine Art Gallery; and Alex Genty-Waksberg, a former TAP staff member who’s pursuing a graduate degree in social work at Columbia University.
The series will premiere May 14, 7 pm, on TAP’s Facebook page with Trenchard interviewing Ram Rojas, a painter, muralist and resident of Baileys Harbor who was born in Venezuela. Future episodes will feature Helen del Guidice, curator of the Miller Art Museum; Jerod Santek, artistic director of Write On, Door County; Cathy Grier, a musician and founder of Open Door Pride; Peter Ciesla, an artist and owner of Bazyli Studio Wearable Art Gallery; and others to be announced.
TAP welcomes suggestions about people to include in Door County Stories. To suggest someone as an interview subject, email [email protected] and share why you’d like to see the individual profiled. The only rule is that interviewees must be full-time Door County residents.
