About this show

The 14th Annual Actors' Scene Showcase consists of ten 5-8 minute two-actor scenes chosen by a panel of local theatre directors. Thirty-five scenes competed for the ten spots in the Showcase, which features twenty local actors performing for an invited audience of agents, casting directors and other theatre professionals, as well as for the general public. Originally modeled after showcases in New York and Los Angeles, the Actors' Scene Showcase has been a great success for the Women's Theatre Alliance and its participants for over a decade, serving as a springboard for many acting careers. The scenes presented in this year's Showcase are: The Boys by Gordan Graham performed by Jenny Lamb and Pedra O'Rourke Cheaters by Michael Jacobs performed by Marissa Newton and Kevin Oestenstad The Esther Play by John Adams performed by Kevin Mayes and Julie Partyka Four Dogs and a Bone by John Patrick Shanley performed by Hattie Davis and Christine Cummings Hamlet's Dead? by Michael Govier performed by Sam Super and Stacie Barra It's Only Temporary by Andy Bennett performed by Katy Helbacka and Carolyn Jenson Lost by Mary Louise Wilson performed by Jennifer Reeves Wilson and Lori Holm The Power and the Glory by Sydney Russel performed by Brandie Moore and Mercy Oni Waiting for Lefty by Clifford Odets performed by Eric Martig and Kristina Marie Johnson-Raymo Wonder of the World by David Lindsay-Abaire performed by Amber Rae Shafer and Madeline Long
