Everyone at DROMIO PLAYERS hopes people are staying healthy! ...but we miss the stage. So thanks to the Jersey Shore Arts Center, we are putting together some short performances for the JSAC website!
More to come!
Two New PLAYS:
Recorded at the JSAC on 5/14/20
Tonight, we will be listening to two ten-minute plays. The first is called, THE VALOR OF MY TONGUE by sheila duane. The title is taken from Lady Macbeth’s soliloquy from Act one of Macbeth. It is a meta-play written about the evening General Macbeth of Shakespeare fame meets the woman who will prompt him to murder, regicide and his own bloody death by decapitation. Oh, Macbeth the signs were there. The play will be performed by AJ Melnick as General Macbeth and Renee Panagos as Ingen aka Lady Macbeth, both actors are founding members of the Dromio Players. Stage directions will be read by Sheila Duane, the author and director.
The second play is a much lighter piece of writing called Wanna Sing the Blues. It also stars Renee Panagos as Kitty Greene, a very young southern belle who wants to run off with a Bluesman saxophone player. Her problem is that she has to convince the sax player that she can sing and contribute to the success of his career. And she can’t sing. So she seeks the retired superstar bluesman, singer and trombone player… the town celebrity, Cosmo “Papa A” Abraham, played by AJ Melnick who is himself a talented singer, to teach her to sing… I guess she’s looking for magic. Aren’t we all?
