Well hey guys. I'm updating a bunch of stuff in my life as I continue to stay afloat in this crazy world of theatre, film, and life. So I've got my fancy shmancy Lauren Myers facebook page, this brand-new website (thank goodness for weebly!), some new headshots (I love Rick, but his pics make me love him even more), and some exciting things to look forward to for the latter half of 2013:
Duke City Rep's 4th season
Ahhhh!! Seems only yesterday we were going into production for Trust, our very first play as a theatre company. And now I'm getting ready to work with my favorite theatre artists in the whole wide world, AND in my home town. Did I mention Katie Becker and Ezra Colon are moving out here to join DCRT? Amazeballs. Here's what we're looking at for this season:
Gas Light by Patrick Hamilton
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare, Adapted by John Hardy
These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich
I'm so excited for every single one of these shows that I could cry. Which I probably will.
It may be haunting, and it may seem disturbing, and it may leave you feeling scarred, but I really and truly think this movie's gonna make waves soon. The team we put together for this project was so creative and intelligent and hard-working that I cannot wait to see the final edit. So stay tuned. Dead Billy's coming...
More film projects....
Too many to name. Mostly indie. Very excited :)
