The Scene for April 9, 2010's a fairly quiet week on the Theatre Scene; a lot of shows closed last week, which means a lot of shows will be opening soon, but the big event on the horizon is the 34th Annual Carbonell Awards.  Once again, the Awards show is being staged by Amy London at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts' intimate Amaturo Theatre.  And once again, the after party will be hosted by just down the street at Revolution Live.

We're also keeping an eye on the Florida Professional Theatres Association website.  This year's FPTA mass auditions are scheduled for May 23-24 at the Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach.  Registration forms and workshop schedules are due on the site any minute now.


The M Ensemble opens The Trial of One Short-Sighted Black Woman -versus- Mammy Louise and Safreeta Mae, and it plays through May 2, 2010. 

Caldwell Theatre Company starts previews of Distracted on Sunday, April 11, and opens on Friday, April 16, 2010.

passing through

The Color Purple plays at the Broward Center's Au Rene Theatre through April 18, 2010.  This show sold out  when it played the Arsht Center in Miami earlier this season; don't wait too long to get tickets!

Dixie's Tupperware Party plays the Broward Center's Abdo New River Room now through April 18.  Yes, it's a play.  Yes, you can buy Tupperware.

Neil Berg's 101 Years of Broadway plays the Parker Playhouse on Saturday, April 10.  And if you miss it, you'll have to wait for 102 Years of Broadway, sometime next year.

Get Back! plays Saturday at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.  It features members of the Broadway and London cast of Beatlemania. (Sure, it's a concert.  But Beatlemania was on Broadway, and...c'mon, it's the BEATLES!)

Other Than My Health, I Have Nothing (And Today I Don't Feel So Good) plays this weekend at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.

for kids:

It's Family Fun Day this Sunday at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts; come to see The Emperor's New Clothes, and participate in pre-show activities and post-show snacks.
