Oh, the places we'll go!

How does Phoenix, Arizona sound?

Well, okay, maybe we won't *actually* go to Phoenix, but with a little imagination, we'll take our audiences there!  In our upcoming play, Scott Organ's Phoenix - coming soon to Matrix Theatre's stage - we'll follow the story of Sue and Bruce; two people living in New York City.  They go out on a... well, maybe it isn't a date... we'll call it drinks.  They go out for drinks.  One thing leads to another and, well, you know... And four weeks later, which is where the play begins, Sue has some pretty important stuff to say to Bruce.

Phoenix rehearsals started last night at Matrix Theatre Company, and we're REALLY excited about this one!  Here's a couple of shots from the first read-through:
From left to right:  Tricia Turek playing Sue, Samer Ajluni playing Bruce,
David Woitulewicz (stage manager), and Stephanie Nichols (director).

Does Samer look familiar?  He should, if you had the chance to see this past fall's Death and the Maiden on the Matrix stage!  But don't worry - we'll treat him a little better this time... and he'll get to wear more clothes.  ;)

We can't wait for all of you to meet Tricia - she's very sweet and a great actress!

And to think back even further, Stephanie Nichols might look VERY familiar to some of you, as well - especially those of you that saw Samuel Beckett's Happy Days, directed by our very own Dr. Shaun Nethercott.  Stephanie played the part of Winnie in that show.

She looks a lot happier when she's not buried up to the waist in a mound of dirt, wouldn't you say? ;)
