Photos from ALMOST FREE

Hello folks! Welcome to summer!

On June 10th, Boomerang hosted  the first of a series of readings of works in progress called FUTURE FEST. The idea is to give work that has progressed beyond the point of a First Flight reading and the resources that come with that, and now are in need of more time and more attention to continue their development. These are the works that we believe could end up in full productions in future Boomerang rep seasons or as stand alones. Hence the name…Future Fest!

(If you’d like to make a donation to support these readings of new plays, click here. We’d really appreciate it)

First up…ALMOST FREE by Tim Duncheon, directed by Kevin R. Free. The cast included Mary E. Hodges, Zak Hoogendyk, Blake Russell, Tarantino Smith and Sara Thigpen.

Here’s the blurb:
Philadelphia, 1793. When Nathaniel, a newly-freed slave, volunteers to help fight an epidemic killing the city’s white residents, he hopes to improve his position in society. Instead, he finds himself in a perfect storm of racial hatred, mutual distrust, and politics. Is it really possible for an ex-slave to achieve the American Dream?

If you missed the reading, you’ll have an additional opportunity to hear it this fall when we’ll present a new reading of ALMOST FREE as it continues to grow.

In the meantime, you can check out these photos from the reading.

Interview with Playwright Lauren Ferebee

Lauren Ferebee sat down with Hollywood Soapbox to discuss her play THE RECKLESS SEASON, her characters and her inspiration for the play. It’s a great read.

If you don’t have your tickets yet for THE RECKLESS SEASON, I’d really get on that. We are in the final week of performances, and the number of available seats is dwindling. Grab your tickets here.

Hey folks…so many of you have heard about how exciting THE RECKLESS SEASON is going to be. I wanted to share some snaps from rehearsal this week. The cast is crushing it, and director Dominic D’Andrea is a rock star. Below are pics of actors Trace Pope (dark shirt), Chase Burnett (red shirt) and Amanda Tudor… (cast member not pictured Brian Morvant was in the hall terrorizing ASM Alex Grant)

Take a look…

(The picture above is from the prompt script of Stage Manager Elise Keller, and it this is a fascinating looking into her world that we rarely see. )

You can still grab tickets here for THE RECKLESS SEASON before they are gone forever (Seriously, don’t wait on this. You’ve been warned)
