The Music of
Fort Point Theatre Channel

As the entertainment for the opening reception of the Midway Channel Gallery exhibit "Changing Faces of Fort Point," FPTC co-artistic directors Nick Thorkelson and Mary Driscoll assembled a short set entitled The Music of Fort Point Theatre Channel.

Music is integral to FPTC's plays, Exclamation Point! evenings, and other events, appropriately enough given that FPTC's mission is to craft theater and other types of performance from the myriad talents of all kinds of artists here in Fort Point and beyond. Thorkelson and Driscoll culled a program from FPTC shows of the past five years. The evening reunited many performing artists who have been essential to the success of FPTC's plays and other events.
