The Scene for May 6, 2011.

Whew!  It's May already!  We'd better start compiling the list of the Summer season shows, and next year's theatre season. Most theatre have already started selling subscriptions to next year's plays. Of course, we don't list them by theatre, we give you the month-to-month breakdown.

And 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 Monday, May 16.  If you are an actor trying to make it in this business, you should be there.

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


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

Palm Beach DramaWorks opens The Beauty Queen of Leenane, through June 19.

  1. Don't forget about The Cha-Cha of a Camel Spider -- opening May 6! :o)

  2. I saw this in my Google reader and wondered why Cha-Cha of the Camel Spider wasn't metioned too. I saw the stage reading last year at the First Stage play reading festival and it was great. I can't wait to see the actual production!

  3. Surprisingly, Florida Stage isn't listed on, and that's why the play was missed initially.
