The First Annual Gay Show by Will Acker and Colby Calhoun
Twenty one years for two Dallas traditions!
Kitchen Dog Theater's nationally recognized New Works Festival is entering its 21st year this season as is the Festival of Independent Theaters. Last year, Jeff Burleson was at Kenyon College for their playwriting symposium and missed both traditions. To atone for that, he will be performing in both festivals this year, and will hopefully return to Kenyon in 2020.
Jeff can be found first at the Kitchen Dog New Works Festival opposite Gloria Vivica Benevides in Ravenous by Daria Miyeko Marinelli. The performance will be the second of the afternoon, closing the first weekend of readings, at 4 p.m. on June 15th, in the Trinity River Arts Center.
Jeff will then be performing at the 21st annual Festival of Independent Theatres with The Very Good Dance Theatre in The Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas. The 1st Annual Gay Show is conceived and written by Colby Calhoun and William Acker, and choreographed by Danielle Georgiou. More about the "FIT Festival" is below. Jeff will also be returning to Theater Too! in the fall for a special late night show! More to come on that production in the coming months.
From their website:
The Bath House Cultural Center and the City of Dallas, Office of Cultural Affairs are pleased to announce the line-up for the twenty-first annual Festival of Independent Theatres. Now entering it’s third decade of innovative, ground-breaking theatre, the festival is once again the place to find the city’s most diverse offering of summertime entertainment.
As is tradition, this year’s line-up includes eight independent theatre companies, some long-time participants and some fresh to FIT, performing eight one-act plays paired in two show blocks. Plus, two brand new cabaret performances by two divas of the Dallas music scene.
The 21st annual Festival of Independent Theatres runs July 12-August 3, 2019 at The Bath House Cultural Center. A full performance schedule is forthcoming. Tickets on sale mid-June.
