The Drama Workshop Presents Home Brew Theater May 20-22
Six Short Plays by Six Local Authors On Tap For Benefit Fix- Our-Roof-Fund
By: The Drama Workshop
The three performances are at TDW's Glenmore Playhouse, 3716 Glenmore Avenue in Cheviot, Ohio, at 8:00 PM Friday, May 20; 8:00 PM Saturday, May 21; and a matinee 2:00 PM Sunday, May 22. Seating is limited. Tickets may be purchased at the door while supplies last or ordered by phone at (513) 598-8303 or online at www.thedramaworkshop.org. Admission is $10. All proceeds benefit the Glenmore Playhouse Fix-the-Roof Fund.
Home Brew Theater is produced by Clint Bramkamp and directed by Kat Reynolds. Says Reynolds, "I was eager to bring in a mix of TDW favorites as well as other local actors who may not have graced the same stage before now. I felt it was important to make this event its own 'community' of sorts. It is so fun to get to play with so many of my friends at once!"
Producer Bramkamp says "As a writer myself, I've been looking for some time for an opportunity to put on a program of shorts by local authors. We finally found a place in TDW's busy schedule. Ten-minute plays have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially since Actors' Theatre of Louisville and the Samuel French publishing house have been holding national competitions. I really like the format; it makes you present your idea in an efficient, compact way. Home Brew gives the audience a nice sample of inventive stories by six local writers. The beer is good, too."
The Six Plays are:
BREAKING GULF NEWS by Phil Paradis, with actors Victoria Covarrubias, Bill Keeton and Ian Tinney; A big oil CEO faces off with the United States Coast Guard on a national news broadcast.
LIFE COULD BE A DREAM, DOC by Clint Bramkamp, featuring Rob Bucher and Adam Drake. A writer seeks professional help - apparently.
BREAKING AND ENTERING by A. K. Forbes, with actors Betsy Bossart, Craig Branch, and Brady Reilly. A couple tries to spice up their marriage with a little role playing.
A SILLY AFTERNOON IN FRANCE by Andy Simpson with actors Kevin Dunaway and Sig Maley takes place in a sidewalk café with two exceptionally civilized patrons.
THE OFF CHANCE by Teri Foltz, featuring Samantha Isler and RJ Bryant. What are the chances of a horoscope really coming true?
THANK YOU by Roger Brookfield, featuring actors Valeria Amburgey and Jimmy Loren Bussey. An older couple muses on the neighbors' tryst.
