The Scene for June 21, 2013

Ok, it's official.  Today is the first day of summer. We've mentioned before that while the official theatre season has ended, the Summer Theater Season is off to a strong start.  And with Summer, comes Summer Theatre Fest, sponsored by WLRN and The South Florida Theatre League.

The South Florida Theatre League has built an entry for The Great Coconut Grove Bed Race. Thisweek, the bed makes an appearance at The Plaza Theatre's.  Next week, it will be making an appearance at a rehearsal for Spamalot at the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre on June 27.

And every Monday, Theatre League member theatres will be hosting readings of plays by playwrights who are League members.
Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend.

 Slow Burn Theatre offers its Summer show; The Wedding Singer, an engagement that only lasts through next weekend.
Women's Theatre Project offers its latest iteration of Girl Play, readings of one-act plays with lesbian themes.  But you don't have to be a lesbian to enjoy the plays.
Conundrum Stages offers 5 So Far, a two night celebration of five years of presenting staged readings and original music.  It's at the Broward Center's Abdo New River Room this Friday and Saturday.

you still haven't missed...
The Plaza Theatre presents 8-Track: the Sounds of the 70's, although you wouldn't know it from their crappy website.  Good thing we know Missy McArdle, or we STILL wouldn't know about this show.

City Theatre presents its latest edition of Summer Shorts at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts through June 30.

Apparently, My Son The Waiter was extended through June 30 at the Broward Stage Door Theater.  And as far as we can tell, no one has reviewed it.  Anyone see a review?  Let us know.

last chance to see...
Teatro en Miami Studio production of Chat ends Sunday, June 22nd.

community and conservatory...

Florida International University offers  an Alumni Showcase through June 22.
Tamarac Theatre Of Performing Arts presents I Do! I Do! through June 30, 2013.  Apparently, it's their last show in this venue, as their landlord has decided a theatre that pays its rent isn't the best use of his retail space.

for kids...
Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater offers The Pied Piper through August 3.
