The Scene for August 23, 2013

There was a time when Summer lasted from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  Well, technically, it's always been from June 21 through September 21, but the break from school ran between those two holidays.  Well, most kids have are ending their first or second week back at school, and the Summer Theater Season is winding to a close.
The South Florida Theatre League member theatres have been hosting free readings of plays by playwrights who are League members all summer long.  This coming Monday, the reading series wraps up with David Sirois' Off Center of Nowhere at The Theatre at Arts Garage.

  The South Florida Theater League's entry in The Great Grove Bed Race will found at Sol Children's Theatre production of Sleeping Beauty.  If you do get in bed with the arts, we're not saying a beautiful prince will kiss you awake. But hey, it could happen.  
The bed's final appearance before the race will be next week at Shorts Gone Wild, presented by City Theatre and Island City Stage at Empire Stage.  Sounds more like "colloboration gone wild" to us.  )Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
The race was originally set for Labor Day, but the organizers have moved it to November 3, instead. Probably so the runners can be fueled by leftover Halloween candy.  But it also gives you time to sign up as a bed runner.  Um, bed team.  Um.  To run with the bed.  Whatever.
Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend.
