The Fringe Site is L-I-V-E!!!!!!

myfringe_boxheadNever did I imagine that I would be SO excited for a website to update… Until last week, when I wanted to check out my fringe show at www.fringefestival.orgonly to find that it wouldn’t be updated and “Alive” until July 1st. And Holy Moly – somehow we’ve reached July. Not sure how it happened, but I’m just going to go with it.

Anyway – to see our page on the site, check this out. I’ve been having a lot of fun at rehearsals, I just wish our director wasn’t such a *Jerk* all the time. Just kidding Mr. Director! If he was such a Jerk, we definitely would not be having some of the best rehearsals I’ve been to in quite some time. We do a lot of work with the characters outside of the text of the script and I really love that. That’s usually the work I have to do on my own when trying to find my character, but by being able to work with the other characters at the same time, it’s bringing a sense of unity. It also helps me feel less crazy, as now I’m not the only one pretending to be someone else… 

Besides the Fringe site, We also have a page for The Aspect Lab. There, hopefully in the coming weeks you will be able to see a trailer for the show. I’ll also see if everyone’s ok with me doing some documentation of rehearsals so that I can share them here.

Finally – I know the biggest question on your mind is- “OMG – When and Where Can I see your show???” Please, stress no more:

Coverage Alert!!!

More Pie, Please!

Perfect Pie

I am excited to announce that our show as well as 20% got a Fabulous write up in the Minneapolis – St. Paul Magazine!!!!

Here’s a taste:

This month, 20% Theatre Company Twin Cities is doing a show called Perfect Pie by prominent Canadian playwright Judith Thompson. Written by a woman and starring four female actors, the play suits the company’s mission perfectly—and that mission is to help provide employment for women in the theater arts.

After reading in 2002 that women hold only 20 percent of professional theater jobs, write a mere 16 percent of professionally produced plays, only 17 percent of which are directed by women, company founders Claire Avitabile and Blythe Davis decided they wanted a bigger piece of the theatrical pie. And so, in 2006, 20% Theatre Company Twin Cities was formed as a sister branch to the original 20% in New York City and the secondary one in Chicago.

Well, I Finally Got Sucked Into The Fringe…

 

Watch Out Minneapolis...
Watch Out Minneapolis…

So by this point in the summer, I felt that the opportunity to be involved in the Fringe had passed me by. 

But I was wrong.

Oh so very, very wrong.

My darling friend and Prince Charming happened to show intrest in an audition on tctfa.org that I had also noticed and shown intrest in.  After 40min in rush hour traffic, two wrong turns in Coon Rapids, some CRAZY costume action – and we were invited into the cast of:

War of the Worlds: The Musical.

 

It should be fun.  I get to tap dance and wear a silly costume. AND We are performing at the old Gutherie Lab space in the warehouse district of Minneapolis on the following dates:

July 31st @ 10pm

Aug 3rd @ 5:30pm

Aug 6th @ 10pm

Aug7th @ 7pm

Aug 8th @ 8:30pm
