Hello friends. First of all, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who made it out to Silver Spring for our One Act Festival last weekend. We had a fantastic turn out and some very energetic crowds. Always proud and happy to perform for my friends and family. To close out the great weekend, I’m happy to share some pictures and a review from the show. First of all, here’s a few pictures that were taken by the talented Harvey Levine:
You can check out the rest of the pictures from Six Seven Three Twenty and Alternate Theory, along with pictures from all of my other shows, here on my Photos page.
I’m also proud to share a nice write-up we got from DC Metro Theater Arts for our weekend. Here’s an excerpt:
“Adam Adkins plays Mike O’Sullivan, the assistant to it seems everyone and is probably the most likable character. Adkins hits the mark by straddling the fence between Gary and Doug and the Coach.”
Not a bad little nod. Feel free to read the full review here or view the rest of my press clippings here on my site. Also, the One Act Festival continues for the next two weekends. Not with me, sadly, but with many of my friends and fellow craftspeople. Please make sure to show your love and support by planning your trip to the festival here.
So that’s all for now, my dear friends. But make sure to come back and visit soon, as art never stops coming.
Tonight is the night: The opening of my two one act plays for the Silver Spring Stage One Act Festival. For tonight’s premiere, we’re offering a Pay What You Can performance. So come on by at 8 with whatever cash you have in your pockets and see my glorious return to the stage. In Six Seven Three Twenty, we go into the draft room of a struggling football team who are in the middle of an internal power struggle. Then, in Alternate Theory, we present a new darkly hilarious theory on the assassination of JFK. Both of these shows are a lot of fun and I’m excited to get them in front of an audience. For ticket details on the remaining weekend, please click here.
Hope to see you all there!
Hey gang. Just wanted to drop by and let you know about a new piece of press that my friend and journalist Peter Rouleau wrote for the upcoming Silver Spring Stage One Act Festival for the Sentinel. Here’s a snippet of my interview portion:
“‘After taking a break from acting for a few years, the Silver Spring One Act festival is a great reminder as to why I love this art so much,’ said local actor Adam R. Adkins, who appeared in the 2013 one-act festival. He has performed in and directed other productions for the company. ‘They’re a great group of people to work with and bringing new, original works to life is incredibly rewarding,’ Adkins said.”
In addition to the lovely write up, you can now purchase tickets for the festival by following this link. The tickets are available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but we also have a pay-what-you-can on Thursday night. We also have a Facebook event page here if that tickles your fancy.
Hope to see everyone there!
Hi gang. First of all, huge thanks to everyone who came out to see Welcome Home and the rest of the films for the 48 Hour Film Project. We had a great turnout and I saw a lot of familiar faces there giving their support to all of the fantastic entries in the festival. Time will tell if we snag any well-deserved awards, but until then, I’m happy to announce that Shrug Productions has posted the full film on Youtube! In case you weren’t able to make it to the premiere on Saturday, please enjoy the video below. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
I’ll be back later this week with some more updates, but until then, enjoy the film!
Two posts in two days? What kind of madness is this?!
Well, I just wanted to pop by because Shrug Productions just released a movie poster for our upcoming film Welcome Home and it’s amazing.
I can’t wait to see this on the big screen. Welcome Home premiers Saturday July 15th at 7:30 at the AFI, as part of the 48 Hour Film Festival. Make sure to purchase your tickets here and come say hi after the film.
See you there!
