We're really into the summer now, and it seems that the media may be taking some vacation time (or got wrapped up in Heat Mania); not a lot of stories in the news this week, so there's no reading list.
So we'll have to plug Summer Theatre Fest instead. At least, the Monday portion of it.
As we've mentioned before, Mondays this summer aren't dark at all. The South Florida Theatre League is sponsoring 18 evenings of play readings by local playwrights at member theaters across South Florida.
Tonight, you have two readings in two locations to choose from.
The Plaza Theatre in Manalapan is offering A Palm Beach Story, by Jack Staub. Remember that the bridge at Ocean Avenue is still under construction, so you'll have to cross at Boynton Beach and drive north on scenic A1A if you are coming from the South, or cross in Lake Worth and take scenic A1A south, if you live more that direction. That one starts at 7:30 pm.
The Crashbox Theatre Company presents CRASHFEST: A series of One Act plays which at 20 meters becomes the portrait of a Vampire Hunter at Empire Stage. It starts at 8pm.
Board members of the Theatre League will be at both locations, selling League t-shirts, and talking up the League.
Speaking of Theatre League and appearances, this Thursday you can find the Theatre League's entry into the Coconut Grove Bed Race at a rehearsal for the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre production of SPAMALOT! They are located at The Galleria Mall in Fort Lauderdale, right on Sunrise Boulevard. So even if you're not dropping your child off for rehearsal, stop in, get a photo of yourself in the bed, then do some shopping. Grab a bite to eat.
