|Connect The Plots 2:
| Open: 11/10/10 Close: 11/14/10
Our 2nd Show of Our 2nd Season, CONNECT THE PLOTS 2: "Make-A-Match-Today.Com" has been completed and cast and rehearsals start this week for a Nov 10 (Preview) and Performances Nov 11-12-13 at 7:30pm and Nov 14 at 3pm at Joria Mainstage Theatre, 260 West 36th Street 3rd Floor, New York, NY. Associate Producer – Joria Productions.
Come see the results of 5 Playwrights, who decided upon writing a COMEDY, setting it in an OFFICE environment, using 9 CHARACTERS (5F - 4M) then throwing in a selected PROP - a SOCCER BALL to liven things up.
Now, put those 5 Playwrights in the privacy of their own apartments with JACK DYVILLE+ writing Act 1 Scene 1 then passing it on to PENNY JACKSON, who contributes Scene 2, allowing J. BOYETT to complete Act 1. Next, GREGG PASTERNACK+ keeps the old Soccer Ball in the air by writing Act 2 Scene 1 before passing it off to ZACH ROTHMAN-HICKS to bring it all to a conclusion. And voila, the Plot Has Been Connected.
The result is a Broad Comedy with up-to-the-minute situations but told in the old Kaufman & Hart or George Abbott way of the past. Hilarious. Fun. Exciting. Different. And this is becoming a Unique Theatrical Signature Event for F.A.C.T. Friends Always Creating Theatre.
Now we put the script in the hands of our capable Directors, LINDA BURSON^, MIKE METZEL^, LAURA PESTRONK, JACK DYVILLE^ and let them continue to up the anti as they direct the 5 scenes independently of one another. Call us crazy but it makes for more Wonderful Theatre!!!
And with a CAST that is sure to Rock The Words right off the Page including; ROMY NORDLINGER* as Maureen Falcom owner of the Make-A-Match-Today.com Dating Service, SARAH COOPER as Penelope, her office assistant more content on becoming the President of Cuba, MADALYN McKAY as Mrs. Mosely who is tired of the same OLD Man and is ready to get back in the frying pan, BOB CONNELLY as Mr. Mosely, the henpecked husband, MADELINE REED as Petula a 30s something that has seen her share of Dating Services, ARTHUR ATKINSON*, Paul Clark, a soccer loving nerd who has his own problems with the ladies, JACQUELYN POPLAR*, Babs, a larger than life Lady of the Evening set to star in her own Reality series, JIMMY MARTIN as Derek and DIKE UZOUKWU as Sean, two would-be Models who can't seem to find the 'right' girl but hey, maybe they don't need to now that they have found one another!

|Eeek! A Mousical
| Open: 04/06/13 Close: 04/13/13
"Eeek! A Mousical" is a 21st Century update of the Aesop Fable, 'A City Mouse & A Country Mouse' starring ASHELY ARAN as Bara, the City Mom and KIMBERLY CUELLAR as Clarisa, the Country Mom. When the City Mom only wants a little peace and quiet at the dinner table away from the screeching traffic, cell phones and texting, she accepts an invitation for she and her family to visit her sister in the country. Her family is not too keen on sewing circles, crawdad fishing and Hard Red Spring Wheat Pageants and Hilarity ensues!!!
But, to make it up to her sister, Bara welcomes her Country relatives to the city. Once the tables are turned and once again the country folk do not accept a different way of life! They find it noisy, and cringe from the hustle-bustle of the city but the straw that breaks the Country Mice backs --- eating a meal amongst the people at The Ritz!
Catchy Music. A Clever Book. A Show that Parents will LOVE as much as the Children!!!
