FREE LIVE on Online This Thursday 5/14 at 7pm
JSAC’s first virtual play done over Zoom with Dromio Players, a local theater group who has been performing in our Herbst Theater in the past is volunteering their time online to put on a LIVE performance on Facebook live
(on the Jersey Shore Arts Center page.)
This particular show has 2 independent plays brought live “on stage” with a brief intermission in between to do Q&A and introductions of the actors.
First play, “The Valor of My Tongue”. It is a metaplay, written and directed by Sheila Duane, about the day Macbeth meets the woman who will become his undoing, Lady Macbeth. Starring AJ Melnick as General Macbeth and
Renee Panagos as Ingen (Lady Macbeth)
Second play, “Wanna Sing the Blues” also written and directed by Sheila Duane is the story of a young southern belle, Kitty Greene, who (like most people at one time or another) falls in love with a lothario saxophone player. Kitty seeks the assistance of Papa A, a man who was once the most famous Bluesman in Mississippi. And Papa A teaches her to sing the blues!
“Wanna Sing the Blues” also stars AJ Melnick as ‘Papa A’ Cosmo Abraham
and Renee Panagos as Miss Kitty Greene.
Both plays are 10 minutes and will be shown live on Facebook with a brief 10 minute Q & A will follow each performance. These performances are available on Jersey Shore Arts Center’s Youtube channel for viewing after 5/14.
