The Theater Cafe experiment continued this month at the Mercury Cafe on July 21st. Going forward, the Theater Cafe will be convening on the third Tuesday of the month.
In addition to the usual readings of scenes from works by local playwrights, we were treated to an audition monologue from COGNation's Scott Merchant. I hope that we can have a few more actors join us with audition pieces next month, because it adds to the evening, and I am certain that Scott found the feedback useful.
I also have a couple of goodies for you that I found out about at the Cafe.
First, you are going to want to check out the Rocky Mountain Theatre Connections website, a resource for theatre designers, directors, actors, playwrights, and patrons in the Rocky Mountain region with just way too many fun features for me to mention here.
It's just like my blog. Only useful. And interesting.
Second, One Night Stand Theatre will be presenting SCI-FI THEATRE: Amazing Tales to Astound The Imagination! on Sunday, August 2, at 7 pm at the West Colfax E-vent Center at 9797 W. Colfax Ave. Lakewood, CO 80215. (Home to the E-Project.)
Described as "an evening of dramatic and comedic readings of plays with science fiction themes . . . and some surprises! Featuring works by Owen Allen, Ray Bradbury, Ken Crost, Wayne Faust, Rebecca Gorman, Bill Thompson, and others."
A couple of the plays were read at the Theater Cafe that night. It looks like a lot of fun. Admission is just $5. For info and reservations call 720-940-9766 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The next Theater Cafe will be on August 18 at 6pm at the Merc. Any questions, ideas, or suggestions for that and future Theater Cafes can be directed to Mark Ogle at email@example.com .
