Theatrical Combat at the Fountain Theatre begins Feb 12th

Get ready to enter a world of theatrical combat where audiences pick the winner in Fountain Theatre’s Rapid Development Series for young writers.

gia on the move theatre Fountain playwrights

.

Get a first look at the work of young, up-and-coming playwrights with this free, competition-style reading series designed to showcase the work of previously unproduced, Los Angeles-based playwrights under the age of 30.

Round One takes place over the course of two evenings, Friday, Feb, 12 at 8 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m.

Each evening will feature one scene from two different plays, with the playwrights choosing the scenes they feel best represent their work. At the end of each night, the audience votes.

The two winning playwrights get to show off a little more of their plays in Round Two, on Friday, March 4 at 8 p.m.

The single surviving play wins two performances of a staged reading on the Fountain Theatre stage: Friday, March 18 at8 p.m. and Saturday, March 19 at 2 p.m.

RDSFree admission to Rounds One and Two; tickets to the staged readings are $5.

Round One, GROUP A:
Friday, Feb. 12 at 8.p.m.

You Belong With Me Because You’re So Vain by Heider Tunarrosa, about a neurotic songwriter who falls in love with his best friend’s ex-boyfriend and must choose between the two. Help arrives in the form of the imaginary versions of Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga. Directed by Emma Agerwald, and featuring George Avalotus, Faith D’Amato, Jamie Paiz Phillips and Jose Picado.
versus
The Kennedy Experiment by Amy Thorstenson, in which a young cosmonaut aboard the International Space Station faces an impossible choice. With the lives of his family, his patriotism, his complicated relationship with his war hero father, and World War III all hanging in the balance, the last thing he needs to deal with is a ghost. Directed by Chad Eschman, and featuring Jesse Abbott Chin, Eugene Alper, Faith D’Amato and James Harper.

Round One, GROUP B:
Friday, Feb. 19 at 8.p.m.

Another Troy by John Johnson, about the perplexity of grief in a war that is happening both far away and in our living rooms. Photojournalist and war correspondent Arthur Hess has made his living taking photos of some of the world’s most violent places — but when his eldest daughter is publically murdered, it is the photo he takes of her corpse that threatens to destroy both his family and his name. Inspired by The Orestia. (Director and cast TBA.)
versus
Intentions by Abbey Fenbert, a comedy about the lengths we will go to — and the lies we will believe — to further our principles and desires. Tillerman House isn’t just a residence, it’s an intentional community. Shit is organic, sustainable, local, shade-grown, fair-trade and cruelty-free— and if it isn’t, Nell (who helped draft the bylaws) will be sure to right it. Until Leif joins. Does the ethos of tolerance extend to an ex-fratbro who doesn’t know a zine from a zen garden? (Director and cast TBA.)

Round Two
Friday, March 4 at 8.p.m.:
Come back to see a little more from each of the two Round One winners — and to vote on which one wins a staged reading on the Fountain Stage.

Giddy-up Little Doggerel! Quickdraw Poetry at The Bootleg L.A.

by Tracey Paleo, Gia On The Move

gia on the move

Most DEFINITELY NOT the show where you take a Xanax and sit back!

Last week’s opening of the Quickdraw Poetry Cabaret by the Melrose Poetry Bureau at the Bootleg Theater lived entirely up to it’s promise of being a risqué ‘velvet bon bon and smoking gun extravaganza’ of poetry, song, burlesque and dueling typewriters. Did they save the world in an hour — probably not.  But there was definitely more than a dash of Friday night sexy, plus a few articles of clothing removed.

As original as it gets, Emcee Brian Sonia-Wallace and company: Nayeli Adorador-Knudsen, Bobby Gordon, Ary Katz and Linda Ravenswood, slam-dunked the evening with audience participation galore.  No one escaped the cross-fire of a single poet, furiously banging at the QWERTY, being pit against one another in a series of crowd suggested versifications, Wild West shoot outs, the typewriter band or scantily clad muse Miss Erin Bridge’s sizzling strip tease charms, (The front row fan club totally didn’t mind at all!)

Be prepared to be riveted by music, sultry dance, breathy orations and defiant provocations. Its ALL about the ‘word.  The stakes are high and the hootin’ & hollerin’ brings the room to a din.  You will be energetically revived and ready for Bootleg’s other evening onslaught of music performance.

Quickdraw Poetry Cabaret by the Melrose Poetry Bureau
@ Bootleg Theater 2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057
Remaining dates are: January 15 & 16 @ 7:30pm
Tickets at bootlegtheater.org

Co-produced with The Bootleg Theater and followed every night by live music and the magic of a cash bar, each show in our run ends with a unique offering:

  • January 15: Brian’s Book Launch Brouhaha – get lit with the book launch event for I Sold These Poems, Now I Want Them Back, a new publication with Yak Press by Melrose Poetry Bureau managing partner Brian Sonia-Wallace.
  • January 16: Closing Party – with tears, drunkenness, dancing, and dreams.

Melrose Poetry Bureau is represented by Knudsen Productions and is a company-in-residence at The Bootleg Theater and Write Club Los Angeles.

 

Blank Theatre Seeking Submissions for the 24th Annual Young Playwrights Festival

gia on the move playwrights festivals los angeles theatreThe Blank Theatre’s 24th Annual Young Playwrights Festival is now seeking submissions nationwide from playwrights 19 years of age and younger. The submission deadline is March 15, 2016. Winning plays will be presented by professional actors and directors from June 2—26, 2016 at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

The Blank Theatre’s Young Playwrights Festival is a nationwide competition that produces the work of 12 young writers each year. Since 1993, the festival has produced 272 plays by playwrights 19 and younger from 27 states.

Each winning play will have four performances in a weekend run. The productions are made possible in part by grants from The Plum Foundation, The Rosenthal Family Foundation, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Hollywood Fringe Festival, Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

The rules for the festival competition are as follows:

  • Playwrights must be 19 years of age or younger on March 15, 2016
  • Original plays and musicals can be any length, on any subject
  • Scripts must be legible and pages must be numbered and unbound

Submissions may be made online at theblank.submittable.com

or hard copies mailed to YPF, c/o The Blank Theatre, PO Box 1094, Los Angeles, CA, 90078 (and must be postmarked or emailed by March 15, 2016).

There is a limit of three (3) plays per playwright. All plays must include a cover sheet with the play’s title, playwright’s name, date of birth, school (if any), mailing address, contact phone number, e-mail address and the play’s production history (if any).

Each playwright whose work is accepted will be assigned a mentor: professionals who will help the youngsters hone their work for performance. Past mentors have included Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, Tony Award-nominated composer Michael John LaChiusa, writer Jeff Greenstein (Will & Grace), producer Todd Milliner (Hot in Cleveland, Grimm), writer Irene Mecchi (The Lion King, Brave), Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), television and film director Garry Marshall, and many others. The playwrights then experience the thrill of seeing their plays performed by industry professionals in fully staged productions.

Said Noah Wyle (star of television’s ER and Falling Skies), Artistic Producer at The Blank, “Each Spring for the past 23 years, The Blank has found the freshest, most original voices in the American theatre, invited them to Los Angeles, and promoted their work during a month-long festival in June. This thought provoking work, performed and directed by seasoned professionals, has entertained thousands of audience members over the years. While these authors are often as different as the states from which they come and the subjects with which they deal, they share something truly improbable. They’re teenagers.” Wyle continued, “These are not only the voices of today’s theatre — they are the voices of tomorrow’s as well.”

Cathy to the Rescue!

Cathy CartoonWith one final “Ack” beloved comic strip character Cathy (originally authored by cartoonist Cathy Guisewite) said goodbye to her readers on October 3, 2010, after 34 years of struggling through the ups and downs of food, love, family and work – the four basic guilt groups of the modern women.

Writer/Producer Susan Sassi, however, thinks Cathy is more relevant than ever and has created Cathy in Real Life, a live action parody of the Cathy comic strip which explores the changing definition of feminism in a comical way.

Cathy in Real Life

Susan wanted to develop a lighthearted film project that had more parts for women as well as showcase different opinions of what should and shouldn’t be empowering to women.

It is fun and important. And “the more people see women protagonists [in film], the more they can re-train themselves to relate to women.”  It’s that simple!

Cathy cartoon strip

.

Yep! It’s an indie-go-go.  So as part of our Los Angeles Femme writers/directors/producers community, we’ve decided to support this truly super cool project and hope you will too.

They need to raise $2650 in 32 days to cover all the costs.  And there are some delicious retail therapy perks involved.

MAKE IT HAPPEN!  GO HERE NOW!
