GAINESVILLE - When north Georgia audiences last saw Dahlonega's Ryan Conarro on a local stage in 1998, he was a student at North Hall High School, taking theatre classes at Gainesville College and performing with the Gainesville Theatre Alliance in "Our Town" and "West Side Story".<br /> <br /> Since then, he graduated from New York University with top honors and moved to Juneau, Alaska, joining the Perseverance Theatre as a company member, co-founding the Generator Theatre Company and traveling throughout "the last frontier" state as a teaching artist. <br /> <br /> And this month, he's working with the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, guest lecturing in classes with theatre majors and taking the next steps to further develop his original performance installation, "this hour forward," a thought-provoking and strikingly visual event to be performed on the University of North Georgia campus January 31-Feb.2.<br /> <br /> "I'm elated to be back with family here in Georgia and working again with GTA and Jim Hammond," Conarro said. "Teaching GTA students about developing original work gives me the opportunity to revisit how and why I've created "this hour forward", and will ultimately improve the installation
