6 plays: 6 writers 6 directors a cast of actresses
THEATRE OF WOMEN (TOW) is Dream Theatre Company's annual play festival consisting of ten minute plays written, rehearsed and performed in a span of 24 hours that celebrates the actress as performing artist.
Dream Theatre Company's focus on the actress as artist and lead is apparent in all of their productions. The idea behind the creation of TOW was to push the art of acting through the examination of the actress in the play. These women are created to be strong, sexy, funny, villains, heroines, demons or even to play men, boys or genderless roles. "They are created so we can show the world that Passion, Strength, Innocence, and Intelligence are traits to be valued and celebrated." Over the years this mission hasn't changed and many artistic relationships and funny, creative scripts have blossomed from these 24 hour festivals. This year we will uphold the traditions of the past while continuing to explore the question: What is it to be a woman in theatre today?
EVENT LOCATION: Dream Theatre - 556 West 18th Street
PERFORMANCES: 8:00pm & 10:00pm
Come see me act in a 10 minute play that was written, rehearsed, and performed in 24 hours!
When it rains it pours!
After a break for some acting classes at Black Box Acting Studio (level 3 was intense but amazing!) I am back in action!
On the docket:
Theatre of Women 24hr Festival!
Coming up Saturday 1/25, I will arrive at Dream Theatre at 8am to start working on a 10 minute script that was written the day before. Myself and a group of talented actresses, directors, and playwrights will showcase these scripts by 8pm. Join us for an evening of theatre, with all female casts!
I am assistant directing this original script at Dream Theatre Company. Written by and starring artistic director Jeremy Menekseoglu, this show is going to knock some socks off. Scary, funny, and unlike anything else you'll see in Chicago. Laura Gouin has taken me under her wing for this show, and I am excited to learn everything I can from her.
The God Committee
Throughout March and April you will find me in Glenview at the Oil Lamp Theater performing as Dr. Kierra Banks in "The God Committee" by Mark St. Germain. This ensemble show will be directed by Artistic Director, Keith Gerth, and explores the question of how organ transplant recipients are selected when an organ suddenly becomes available. Think of it as a cross of 12 Angry Men, E.R., and Grey's Anatomy. So thrilled to work with this company for the first time!
There are future projects with Dream Theatre on the horizon, and please join us for Dream Theatre's Gala on Feb 1 to announce and celebrate the new season!
