The Scene for May 13, 2011

It's starting to feel like summer, and it's not because so many shows are closing this weekend.  Fortunately, there are also a couple of shows opening this weekend, and more coming in the next few weeks.

Don't forget, the FPTA statewide audtions are rushing up on us: this year, they are being held in Vero Beach at The Riverside Theater on May 21-23. The deadline to register is this Monday, May 16.  If you are an actor trying to make it in this business, you should be there; not only do you get seen by every major theater in Florida, there are seminars and workshops.

Now, here's what's happening this week on The Scene:


The 39 Steps opens this weekend at Actors' Playhouse, through June 5.

GableStage opens Sarah Ruhl's IN THE NEXT ROOM or The Vibrator Play, through June 12.

Rising Action Theatre opens 2 Boys in a Bed on A Cold Winter's Night.  And if you suspect that the title suggests there will be a lot of male frontal nudity, it only means that you've been paying attention.

you still haven't missed...

The Cha-Cha of a Camel Spider plays at Florida Stage through June 5.

Palm Beach DramaWorks' production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane plays through June 19.

Infinite Abyss Productions offers Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Empire Stage through June 4th.
