For Still Point, theater is for everyone

 | 

Since 1993, Still Point Theatre Collective has been producing professional touring stage performances that have gained a positive reputation in the Chicago area, throughout the Midwest and beyond.

But for Still Point, theater is more than just selling out shows and attracting audiences to share inspiring stories. Separate from the professional productions, the group has outreach programs that teach both the fundamentals and the power of theatrical expression to the developmentally disabled and female prisoners. For Still Point, theater is for everyone.

Antonio Banderas may be cast as Pope Francis in biopic

Spanish heartthrob Antonio Banderas may be cast in the role of Pope Francis in the first feature film to be made on the life of the Argentine pontiff.

Italian director Daniele Luchetti plans to make the $12 million Spanish language film, titled "Call Me Francesco," with producer Pietro Valsecchi, who has made some of Italy's highest-grossing movies.

Valsecchi's Rome-based production house, Taodue Film, confirmed the news Wednesday, and a spokeswoman said the company was looking to shoot the film in various locations, including Argentina and Italy.
