So excited!!! I was cast in a new show with Ad Astra Theater Company‘s Bachelorette! This play is by by Lesyle Headland and is a very dark comedy:
“Ten years out of high school, Regan, Gena and Katie convene in the luxurious bridal suite of their old friend, Becky, the night before her wedding in New York City. Fueled by jealousy and resentment, the girls embark on a night of debauchery that goes from playfully wasted to devastatingly destructive. A wicked black comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess.”
This play is INTENSE and represents a huge stretch for my acting skills. Not to give any spoilers but I pretty much play a cocaine addicted party girl that ends up having to try to clean up after my friends. Very not my usual meek knitting self. This show is definitely adult content with provocative situations, adult language, and drug themes while all the while being outrageously hilarious. I need to bring out my A+ game for this show.
I have worked with this director before and the cast he picked is amazing! We started rehearsals this week and it is going to be an exhausting and exhilarating experience. I’ll try to keep you posted….but this is going to be large part of my life for the next month!!
Here’s hoping I break a leg or two!
