Volunteers needed for LADCC Awards eve – Mon 3-18-13

Los Angeles Drama Critics needs Volunteers for Monday, March 18, at the LA Theatre Center, Downtown LA.

Are you friendly? Are you fun?  Do you want to meet theater professionals?

Help your theatre community – and make new friends and contacts in the process – by volunteering at the 44th Annual Awards show of the LA Drama Critics Circle.

The awards ceremony is being held on Monday, March 18, 2013 at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, 514 S. Spring St., Downtown Los Angeles.

Presenters include some of the top producers and stars working in the LA area.

The volunteer work is easy. You’ll be fed delicious food and you won’t be run ragged:

– Monday, March 18, 2013

– If you can be there during the day, you’ll run errands and help out at the talent rehearsals.
– We especially need folks from 5:30pm on to help with setup – nothing heavy – and light ushering.
– During the show (curtain at 7:30pm), we need runners to bring presenters and VIPs from the audience seating to backstage. (Quick and easy.)
– Most of the time you’ll be able to watch the show and hang out, ready to jump in as needed.

Awards chair Bob Verini (critic, Daily Variety) seeks people who are energetic with a good attitude. You can learn more, or sign on, by e-mailing Bob here.

Thanks for your consideration!

Pauline Adamek – LA Weekly

Cherokee playwright Diane Glancy offers a sad slice of contemporary country life in a small, dusty town in West Texas. Struggling with a dwindling congregation in his (almost) ghost town, evangelical preacher Jonathan (aka Reverend Hawk, played by Choctaw actor Randy Reinholz) and his dependent sisters face eviction from their church home. Glancy crams several related themes into her play, from the bleak fate of the impoverished elderly to the cold-hearted business decisions of the church to the destruction of the environment when government sells out to developers.   Read more…

It was a convivial group of actors, directors and theater artists of all kinds who mingled with the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle (LADCC) members last night at the lovely theater space of Los Angeles Theatre Center (LATC) in Downtown LA.  Gathering were the nominees for this year’s LADCC awards ceremony.

The LATC is generously providing their venue for the awards night, to be held in two week’s time, on Monday, March 18, 2013.

Awards show host, French Stewart, was on hand, regaling party-goers with jokes and witty conversation.

A delectable buffet was supplied by Gwen Kenneally and her partner Rafet, from “Back to the Kitchen” Catering company,  that was 50% vegan fare and 100% delicious!
