The Renegade Theatre Festival has created a new series called "Renegade Readings" to showcase the work of local playwrights and whet your appetite for the annual free Renegade Theatre Festival, this year running August 14-16.
Shop Talk is the brainchild of playwright Bill Helder: four short plays by local playwrights that all tell stories of life in “the shop.” Plays include The Beauty Shop by Roger Rochowiak, The Coffee Shop by Jane Zussman, The Flower Shop by Eileen O'Leary, and Helder’s own The Costume Shop.
Bob Robinson directs and the cast includes Ken Beachler, Sue Chmurynsky, Katie Dufort, Chanae Houska, Diana Lett, Jeff Magnuson, and Amy Rickett.
The eclectic Absolute Gallery, a regular location during the August theatre festival, has graciously opened their doors for the Renegade Readings. A second reading is being planned for mid-June and will feature spoken word artists including Suban Nur Cooley and Janet Colson.
