The Scene for June 11, 2010

Quite a few plays are opening this weekend, most of them centrally located in Broward, and one in Miami Gardens.  A special treat this weekend is Carbonnell Award winning actress Lela Elam reprising her work in No Child, being presented this Sunday at 5pm by GableStage at Florida Memorial University's Lou Rawls Center for the Performing Arts.  FOR FREE.  The offering  is part of GableStage's educational programming.

Speaking of education, The Emerging Talent Showcase will be playing at Palm Beach Dramaworks on Tuesday June 15, and Wednesday June 6.  The Showcase features Dreyfoos School of the Arts theatre department graduates.  The grads will be singing & acting AND there will be designers/technicians on hand to show their work.  A lot of these kids will end up on South Florida stages, TV, and movies - because many of them already have.

There's lots going on: don't miss any of it!

The fledgling company Andrew Arts Studio offers its production fresh staging of Godspell through June 26th.  No reviews out on this one, but I saw it, and while some of the young voices lacked the strength to overcome the recorded accompaniment, the enthusiasm of the largely teen cast more than made up for it.
