The Scene for May 14, 2010

May is flying by so fast that it was Thursday too soon! 

The Cappies Awards Gala is this coming Tuesday; don't know what that is?  In a nutshell, it's for participating high school theatre programs inSouth Florida.  Keep an eye on The Scene, we'll be posting more about it shortly.

On a more somber note, Carol Provonsha's memorial service will be held at Florida Rep on Monday, over in Fort Myers.  For more information, read The Drama Queen.

GableStage still has some spots open for its fundraiser auction. CLICK HERE to sign up.  The event is May 22nd, and the deadline for tickets is May 19.


The world premiere of Christopher Demos-Brown's When the Sun Shone Brighter, the final production at Florida Stage's Manalapan space, is this Friday.  Since I opened the first play in that space, I will be there for this opening, too.  Hope to see you there!  It plays through June 20.

South Florida's premiere producer of musical theatre is premiering a non-musical; Actors' Playhouse opens Michael McKeever's Unreasonable Doubt, also this Friday.  It runs through June 6.

Read more about both plays in The Miami Herald. Christine Dolen points out that two brand new plays opening is a sign of a healthy theatre scene, and of course, we agree.

All the world's a stage, and Pinecrest Rep is doing David Mamet's  Oleanna outdoors.  It opens May 15, and runs through June 6 at the Pinecrest Garden's Banyan Bowl.  (Yeah, that sounds more like a salad offering at a chain restaurant.  But that's what they're calling it.)
