CALL TO ACTION: National UBU ROI Bake-Off

PRESIDENT’S DAY: Monday, February 19, 2018

Paula Vogel sounded the call,…5 theatre artists and 1 sculptor in Frederick, Maryland answered!

We modified Vogel’s rules for a collaborative playwriting “bake-off” to fit our small merry band of writers: David Allerton, Kevin Cole, Amber George, Sarah Hempel Irani and Lydia Hadfield. Dramaturg David Allerton prepared and delivered background knowledge on Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi: its historical, social and cultural context. The party then watched Geoff Dunbar’s 20 minute animated short adaption of Ubu Roi to foment recognition, outrage and inspiration. Next? Riotous creative catharsis! Theatre professional Doug Grove arrived just in time to read the part of Chipmunk #2.

Franco (Najee Cardee-Banks) and Arthur (Tad Janes) make a bet in “Superior Donuts”

It’s been an absolute pleasure Assistant Stage Managing for the Maryland Ensemble Theatre mainstage production of “Superior Donuts” by Tracey Letts.

This was the first show I’ve worked on where I could witness the cast work with both a fight choreographer and a dialect coach.
