Watching “Aliens” tonight on the SiFi channel, I am again internally debating the world’s most quotable movies. To be honest, I’ve had this conversation with my friends, Chris Hanel (of “The Formula” and Daily Blink fame), (Dave Atwater, Brian Bodensteiner, and Todd Gutknecht) of the improv troupe, “Comics In Action,” and Angie Toomsen (a woman who really loves movies).
Found out I was nominated for two categories: Best Actor (Becky’s New Car) and Best Tech (Fictional Murders). 🙂
The winners will receive their trophies at the Night of Stars event, which is Thursday June 5th at the North Ridge Pavilion, 2250 Holiday Rd, in Coralville, at 7:00pm. Because space in this venue is limited we encourage you to make a reservation. To make a reservation please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and number of guests. We hope to see you there! Nominees, please also make a reservation so we know you’re coming! In addition to the awards ceremony, there will be entertainment, wine and hors d’oeuvres…
Holy Mackerel, I don’t do a lot of “on-stage” acting… mostly, I do a lot of back-end stuff… lighting, sound-design and such… However, this time-around I offered my services as an actor and auditioned for Dreamwell’s “Becky’s New Car”. I was not all that familiar with the material, yet I placed my foot forward and rattled-off a bunch of stuff from the script that To This Day… I’m not entirely sure what I read. 🙂 However, the small part I DID remember was the part of “Steve”, a forlorn employee of Buckley’s “Super Car Dealership”…. the monologue was “To Die For”!
It’s been a few years since I’ve performed/acted on-stage. The last time I did was for Henry V … an extensive Dreamwell Theatre production back in the summer of 2011. 🙂
I consider this production to be an… eminent storm of theatrical performers! 🙂 An “Oh My God… these guys are in the cast?”… sort of thing. Considering the actors and the “…Judas Iscariot” script… this will be a “Cannot miss!” type of show. Really… you simply will have to attend. It’s THAT GOOD!. 🙂
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot tells the story of a court case over the ultimate fate of Judas Iscariot. The play uses flashbacks to an imagined childhood, and lawyers who call for the testimonies of such witnesses as Mother Teresa, Caiaphas, Saint Monica, Sigmund Freud, and Satan.
Before I get too far… this is NOT a review of the Fourth Room Theatre “Cymbeline” production… it’s more of an assessment of the cast and crew… as a member of the crew. So, do NOT take my word for it… you must see this show for yourself and make your OWN judgement. 🙂
So, here we go…
