Love’s Labor’s Lost August 29, 2010

Summer is nearly over. Work is becoming a drag with the cold-front weather coming in shortly. With all the running around and endless responsibilities, not to mention the too-soon bundling up, it’s high time you relax.

Take a breather from all the hard work the week brings. Collect a group of your close friends, a blanket and bug spray (those blood-sucking suckers are still buzzing around. And no I don’t mean vampires) and enjoy a fabulous night of Shakespeare in the Park.

Love’s Labor’s Lost will be playing August 19 through September 12 in Centennial Park. The show starts at 7:30pm with pre-show entertainment at 6:30pm. Refreshments will be provided as well. While the performance is free a $5 donation is appreciated.

The play is about four men who promise to stay celibate and studious for three years. All that changes when they stumble upon four beautiful women. It’s a comedic “birds and the bees” play. The male actors studied the mating tendencies of birds and have incorporated the actions into their performance: strutting, bobbing and fluttering.

Love’s Labor’s Lost should be a spectacular spectacle of loveable characters, fun and obnoxious antics and colorful costumes. Escape from your desk, your annoying boss and get your dose of Shakespeare in the Park.

Summer Theater! May 20, 2010

Hey New Jerseyians.

Tired of soaking up all the sun that’s been rained down on us the past couple of days? (Clearly a joke since it’s been overcast for the past 2 1/2 days)

Want to express yourself through song, dance and acting?

Well, get off your toosh and stop reading plays. Instead, go out and audition for one!

There are auditions for two plays at the Kelsey Theater at Mercer County Community College (MCCC).

“Amadeus” and “Seussical, the Musical” are having open auditions. People 16 years or older may audition for “Amadeus”. “Seussical, the Musical” will cast based on stage ages instead of actual ages. Whatever age you can play onstage is the part you’ll land.

For more information take a gander at my “Upcoming Shows” tab.

Stay fabulous this summer!
