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!

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.

My favorite artist, dwellephant, approached me several years back about getting involved in Combat Theatre.  He loved the concept and wanted to get art involved.  I jumped at the chance and that first round one lucky audience member got selected and dwellephant painted a portrait of her as a bunny during the course of that two hour show.  Remarkable.

But not remarkable enough for dwellephant.  He wanted the true Combat experience.  So the next show, and every show since then, he has created sixteen new works of art, one each for the sixteen plays created during the weekend.  He sets up in another room and can only hear what’s going on in the theatre over the monitors.  When the audience learns what the subject and the location of the next play is, that’s the first time dwellephant learns it as well.  He gives himself only the duration of that play to complete the work.

He was able to get pictures of eleven of the sixteen plays he created for this past Combat Theatre and they can be seen here: http://dwellephant.wordpress.com/2011/01/20/combat-theater-january-2011-edition/  The picture posted here was for John Van Slyke’s play, “To Catch a Honey.”  The Subject was To Catch a Predator and the Location was A Bee Hive.  It was directed by Raeleen McMillion and featured the acting styling’s of Eric Westphal, Stacy Hicks, Emmitt Morgans and Karen Estrada.

dwellephant is a big supporter of all the arts in Milwaukee, and we in turn should support him.  Take a moment and visit his website: http://dwellephant.wordpress.com/ 

And if you happen to have one of the seven pieces of art dwellephant wasn’t able to capture, take a pic and send it in and we’ll get it posted.
