Normally our writers are challenged with writing a play based on a random Subject and Location.  Not so with Combat! The Musical!  This time they get 1 of 8 parts of a story.  Oh, and they have to write a song or two.  Once the first writer and musician team is done with their installment, they pass it on to the next team who must take the story on the next leg of the journey.  Only then, when the story is complete, does the real fun begins.  Our directors and actors have to whip all of these pieces together in one short day for this most challenging of musicals.

 

So get your Bunny on!

I’m very much looking forward to hearing this play and can use all the feedback I can get.  And Katie’s put a delightful cast together for the reading.  And it’s free!

Fletcher

Milwaukee, WI …True to its mission to nurture local artists, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre (MCT) presents the Montgomery Davis Play Development Series staged reading of MORE LOSERS, by Milwaukee-based playwright James Fletcher

An unemployed and depressed dreamer, a barista with writer’s block, a young woman looking for love through sex, a simple man searching for understanding.  Four tales of people marginalized by society.  You’ll need to walk a few miles in their shoes before you label them “losers.”

Playwright James Fletcher is also the co-founder and artistic director of Milwaukee’s Bunny Gumbo Theatre Company, which produced his play LOSERS in 2007. MORE LOSERS continues the style and themes explored in LOSERS, giving patrons a glimpse into the lives of four more underdogs. Katie Cummings makes her MCT debut directing the new work featuring Alexandra Bonesho, Drew Brhel, Karen Estrada, Dan Katula, Emmitt Morgans.

MORE LOSERS  will be performed on Monday, September 17, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in the Skylight Bar & Bistro, located on the second level of the Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward.  Reading reservations are not required; seating is first-come, first-served. The reading is free of charge, with donations kindly accepted.  The Skylight Bar & Bistro will be open for dinner and refreshments beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more information, contact Milwaukee Chamber Theatre at (414) 276-8842.


More pictures from Combat 8.  Here’s Patrick Holland as Pauly Shore.  Jim Thibodeau’s pairing was Clint Eastwood in a Relay Race which turned into something of a celbrity roast.

John Maclay and Tami Rentmeester were featured in this play written by Steven Midthun.  His pairing was Public Access TV on a Chicken Ranch.

There’s Ken Williams making his first appearance in Combat, not as a performer, but as a volunteer from the audience.  The lesson to be learned here is that everything is an audition.  Either that or never, ever volunteer.
