Plenty of happenings and goings on in the last few weeks. Last weekend I had the opportunity to go up to Bel Air for BOOM! Theatre’s 2014 Brave New Works Festival and perform in a new One-Act show called The Dog Therapist, written and directed by the talented Kristy Simmons. I had a great time bringing a new work an audience with such a great cast. And I have good news. If you missed it, you can catch it on the Youtubes! Just jump over to my Videos page and check it out, along with a newly-discovered trailer for an indy film I did years ago called The Portrait and a few other clips.
Last weekend proved even busier as I also got a chance to shoot with DC Dogs for their 48 Hour Film Project. While I’ll hopefully be able to post it on this site sometime in the future, you can see it with the rest of us at the premiere this Thursday at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring. As a long time film geek, the opportunity to see my oversized head on an AFI screen is a pretty exciting prospect. And you’re welcome to join in my excitement by buying your tickets to the screening here.
And lastly, I finally have all the dates and times for my upcoming shows. Firstly I will be in the Source’s One-Act Play Festival in a piece called The Narrow Gate. We had our first read through last week and I can’t think of another first reading/rehearsal where so much progress was made. This is going to be a fantastic piece, and I hope all of you can come out to see it. Once that closes, I’ll be just about ready for my DC Summer Fringe show Saving Private Poo. So reserve the dates on my Calendar page, and make sure to follow the Poo action on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Or you can just follow me on the Twitters and I’ll keep you all up to date. Be seeing you.
Well, after several months of rehearsals and 4 weeks of shows, Morning, Miranda finally closed on Saturday. While I’m proud of our run and I’m ready to move on to my next project, I’m sad to leave such an amazing group of artists. From our first rehearsal in January to our strike of the set last Sunday, rarely have I had such a fantastic time with a rag-tag group of theater professionals. I wish my cast and crew nothing but the best, and hopefully we’ll get to work together again very soon.
But as one door closes, another opens. I’m happy to announce my project for this year’s DC Summer Fringe Festival: Saving Private Pooh! Originally performed as part of Landless Theater’s Mashup Festival last year, this fun piece is a combination of Winnie the Pooh and World War II films. And rather than playing a nameless Nazi who gets the wrong end of Pooh’s claws like last year, this time I’ll be stepping in as Eeyore! So if you’ve ever wanted to see me get nailed in the butt, here’s your chance. Dates have been announced, and they’re on my Calendar page here. Make sure to check back soon with Ticket information and fun updates.
Also, as I’ve mentioned before, I have a few different festivals coming up. The first is BOOM! Theater’s Brave New Works Festival, which will be premiering on May 4th. Tickets are available here. Also, I’ll be performing in my very first Source Festival piece in June! Performance dates are TBA, but you can read up on the festival at their site here.
That’s all for now. But stay tuned for Source dates, Pooh ticket info and hopefully some pictures from Morning, Miranda to pretty up the site. See you then!
Just a few quick updates notes. Firstly, of course, Morning, Miranda is still in full swing. Tomorrow night kicks off our third weekend and I’m excited to get it back in front of an audience. I will never cease to shill this show I’m very proud of, so you can get your tickets here or read all the nice things people have said about us on my Press page here.
In the meantime, I have a few notes for upcoming theater projects in the works! First of all, at the start of May I will be involved with the BOOM! Brave New Works Theater Festival. I’ll be performing a charming new piece written by my good friend Kristy Simmons. It’s a one-night performance, so don’t miss your chance to see it! Please visit BOOM! Theater Company’s site here for ticket information or reserve the date on my Calendar page.
Following that performance, I’m proud to announce that I will be participating for the first time in the Source Festival here in DC. The Source Festival has been making it’s mark as a theatrical institution here in DC, so I’m happy to finally be throwing my hat in the ring. Details are still in the works for the dates & times, but I’m sure I’ll be letting you know about it ASAP. In the meantime, feel free to read up on the festival at their website here.
And just to add a few quick notes: I’ve added an updated Resumé to the site. Make sure to follow me on the Twitters for fun show info, keep an eye on this Sunday’s Veep for a possible glimpse of your favorite local actor and check back soon for some future Fringe show news. And, as a final plug, make sure to come out to see Morning, Miranda this weekend. Hope to see you soon!
