Author. Poet. Mentor….Actor!
So I just got the callback friends, and I have OFFICIALLY been cast as Alma in the Piccolo-Spoleto production of “Yellowman.”
This is a Pulitzer Prize winner written by Dael Orlandsmith (born Donna Brown) about the issues of colorism in the black community. It also happens to be set in South Carolina.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Piccolo-Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC it is a 17-day cultural arts extravaganza! It’s part of the world-renown Spoleta Festival USA where artists and craftsmen come from all over the world to experience the beauty and creativity of our “Holy City.”
There are no exact dates yet for this particular production or ticket costs, but as soon as I find out I will let you know! The official festival dates are May 25 to June 10, 2018!
Thank you to my family and friends and this beautiful community of fellow writers for your continued support. I am thankful to God and the Directors/Producers of this show for giving me a shot at doing something that brings me a lot of joy!
If you’re in the Charleston, SC area and are interested…we’re still casting for my counterpart, Eugene! The character is a very fair-skinned African-American male in his thirties. No acting experience needed, just a passion to learn and give your best! 🙂
[04.06.18 UPDATE — We have fulfilled the role of Eugene guys! Thanks for the interest my friends…I meant to update this sooner!! Our opening night is May 27, 2018 in Charleston. Post a comment or send me a message for more information on how to catch me and my hot, amazingly talented -also hottt- co-star on stage! And don’t forget to let us know what awesome events you have going once!]
[05.13.18 UPDATE — Due to unforeseen circumstances, this production has been cancelled. However, you can’t keep a good crew down! Instead of a full production of “Yellowman” by the illustrious Dael Orlandersmith, we will be doing a stage reading of
“We are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia” at PURE Theatre in Charleston, SC on May 27 @ 7pm, May 31 @ 8pm, and June 3 @ 7pm. IT’S TOTALLY FREE! SO bring the family and enjoy a creative, re-telling of the awesome production, “We are Proud to Present…”!]
