It appears I've been M.I.A. for a long while...and here's why! I've been lucky enough to be cast in three (entirely) different shows: Ancilla (Erotium's maid/BFF) in "The Menaechmus Twins" by Plautus, Millie Michaels in "California Suite" by Neil Simon, and the (super sad) prisoner in "Chair" by Edward Bond. It's been extremely busy in the best way possible and I'm lucky enough to work with people both new to the SMC theatre crew and some of my closest friends.
A little overview of the shows:
- Taking place in 2077, a woman by the name of Alice and her "son" Billy are subjected to the bizarre social norms of a corrupt Government all centered around the significance of a chair. Directed by Ashley James (Class of 2015-Senior Seminar) starring Dustin Kenyon as Billy (Class of 2015-Senior Seminar)
"California Suite"-Neil Simon
- A series of hilarious and sometimes alarming situations between couples and friends as they vacation in California. Directed by Shannon Rachel Carroll (Class of 2015-Senior Seminar) and starring Zachary Pesner (as a few roles; Class of 2015-Senior Seminar)
And last but not least, "The Menaechmus Twins" directed by Peter Harrigan which also happens to be the Spring 2015 main stage theatre production.
This video is a little sneak peak into the process of set design, script revisions, and the rehearsal process leading up to opening night on March 25th-March 28th. Wednesday (the 25th) and Friday (the 27th) performances are by the conventional cast, while Thursday (the 26th) and Saturday (the 28th) are performed by the Genderbent cast. Thank you to Aaron Gasson and The Defender for allowing me to use this EXTREMELY well produced video.
You can catch "California Suite" in April on the 10th-11th (Friday and Saturday) as well as "Chair" the following weekend (the 17th-18th).
