Month: December 2013

West Coast Invasion

While I was doing my “other life”, my life outside of my writing and my acting and my theater stuff, last night (in other words my other job), I got an email from Sarah at the Stage Left Theater in Spokane, WA. It was simply titled “Congratulations”. It was a good thing I looked at the sender because I have a habit of deleting any emails that looks suspicious and usually those suspicious ones are titled “congratulations” or “The stamps you ordered” or something similar. ┬áBut Dionysus has been good to me these final weeks of 2013, so I decided to look a little closer. (Side note, I don’t worship Dionysus, but as the Greek god of the theater, I thought I’d give him a shout-out here. However, I’ve been truly blessed by the Lord above.)

So glad I didn’t delete that email. My “microplay”, Sunday Dinner, was selected by the Spokane based theater for their upcoming, two-night festival “Fast & Furious”. The Fast & Furious festival is a showcase of 1-minute plays from over 50 different writers from across the United States.

Sunday Dinner, was originally written for and performed by Mind The Gap Theater in New York City for World Theater Day 2015 and they did an awesome job with it, but I’m excited to see it performed from a different cast of actors AND I’m excited as it marks my first piece performed on the West Coast. So no, I’m not personally heading west (unless some generous patron wants to fly me there), but my work is and that, to me anyways, is more important then me personally being there.

In other Everett news, I will have some new works published by Black Box Theater Publishing, coming in the new year. Four of my short plays (each around the ten minute mark) will be published individually as well as part of a collection titled “Based On The…” . I haven’t talked a lot about this because I was still in the editing process, but I’m happy to share that with you as we prepare to step into 2014. These works will be available on a number of platforms (ebook, print copy) and for purchase on Amazon. More information when it becomes available.

Finally, late in the evening of December 24/early Christmas morning, I got an email from Rebecca at Heartland Play Publishers. Someone requested the royalties to my play THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE STORY OF TOM SAWYER AS TOLD BY BECKY THATCHER. No details on that yet, but I’m excited for whoever is putting it on, as that show has a lot of personal feelings for me and means a lot to me.

I’m going to try and squeeze in another blog post before the new year is on us, but if I don’t, Happy New Year and thank you for being a part of my journey

Happy Christmas

This is too cute. Merry Christmas!

My Interview on Chatting With Sherri

This afternoon, I had a great time “Chatting with Sherri” on BlogTalkRadio. I talk about theater, how I got started in theater and Allie In Wonderland. I did make a mistake and called The Dalton Gang the Hole-In-The-Wall Gang, what can I say, mistakes happen.

Anyways, you can listen to the show below:
