One More Show, Phoenix!

Tonight is our final performance at the 2011 Phoenix Fringe Festival.  What can I say?  Come along, join in the fun. As one of the students at the Estrella Mountain Community College performance commented on our TalkBackR site:

“I loved that the forum worked to convey surprise and confusion for the audience from the beginning. It really helped to make us feel connected to the performance, rather than simply audience members we felt like we became participants.”

TalkBackR is a lovely idea, but it’s not perfect, so do feel free to leave any comments, feedback, thoughts, suggestions here on the website, or shoot me an email.

I love that what started out as a 10 minute one-woman sketch about 3 years ago, now has a cast of – well, however many people there are in the space by the time we finish.  No-one gets humiliated, there is respect for everybody’s role, whether sitting in the audience or joining Dame June on stage for a bit of coaching in playing Shakespeare.

So, only one show to go, and then Dame June heads off to other parts on her world lecture tour. Who knows where she will turn up next?  Not me, that’s for sure. I remain, as always, her humble servant, following wherever she leads.

See you tonight – at Space 55 – 7 pm sharp.


Brush up your Shakespeare, with the help of Dame June Bloom

We would like to offer three people the opportunity to receive some personal coaching in performing Shakespeare with the renowned Shakespearean actress Dame June Bloom, during her 3 appearances at the Phoenix Fringe.

Tell us in 40 words or less which Shakespeare character you would like to be, and why.  Choose your preferred performance, and if you win, you will receive two complimentary tickets (one for you, one for your guest) and be invited to join Dame June on stage during the performance.  You will present 10 lines of your favourite Shakespeare monologue, and Dame June will provide you with her own inimitable style of coaching.

Just fill in the form, and we will advise you by March 30th whether you have won or not.
