The cast, Forrest Denize, Jennifer Onyeiwu, Lauren Middleton and Libby Johnston all joined on stage to perform a live reading of Thanksgiving in the Wilderness by Kellie Powell. They were simply awesome, considering that they had only one rehearsal moments prior, with a brief direction from yours truely. The general feedback from the audience was of surprise at the level of performance for a play reading and they absolutely loved it. It was the perfect play and the perfect cast for our first read, I'm extremely proud of them.
Finally, everyone moved back to the cafe where Rose Treadwell and Hana Judd of Rook stunned us all with their harmonising talents. To think that I had just stumbled across them performing at a random bar in Albany only two weeks prior simply had to be one of those serendipitous moments - they couldn't have been a more perfect fit for the event.
Thank you so much, to all of you involved and to those of you who came to support Cafe Theatre. I believe it is an ideal platform for performing artists and playwrights to regularly practice their craft with a live audience. So please, invite as many as you can to like the Cafe Theatre's FaceBook page. Also, feel free to post a comment, make any suggestions or give a review.
I look forward to seeing you all at the next one, which is soon to be announced.
So put the following date in your diary.
