This weekend is the closing weekend for Theatre 29’s newest production, the original play, “Actress,” written and directed by Twentynine Palms resident Josh Lazar. “Actress” has been getting a great reception by all who have seen it, with standing ovations for the actors’ outstanding performances and some going back to see it a second time. The final three performances are Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m., and a Sunday matinee at 2:30. Tickets are $8 to $12. And after the final curtain comes down on Actress, the next play will be ready to hit the stage. Reporter Diana Jones says the play has been cast and the actors are hard at work rehearsing for their opening August 24…
Following the conclusion of the original play “Actress” at Theatre 29, the musical version of the classic story “Anne of Green Gables” will take the stage for 5 weekends August 24 through September 22. Helmed by the veteran production team of director and musical director, Kathryn Ferguson, and assistant director Marty Neider, “Anne of Green Gables” follows the misadventures of a wildly independent orphan with fiery red hair and a temper to match. Anne Shirley is mistakenly sent to live with a plainspoken farmer and his spinster sister, who thought they were adopting a boy. Cast as Anne is Vanessa Walton. The strict, but with a heart-of-gold sister Marilla Cuthbert, is portrayed by Virginia Sulick. Her plain-spoken brother, Matthew will be played by Leonard Weber. Anne’s “bosom” friend, Diana Barry, is Emily Sheckler. Handsome Gilbert Blythe will be played by Scott Clinkscales. Nosy Rachel Lynde is played by Analisa Pilecki, making her Theatre 29 debut. Snooty Mrs. Barry is Shelly Sheckler. Rounding out the cast are Marissa Thomas, Amy Fangmeyer, Nena Jimenez, Jasmine Shaffer, and Ben Bees. Tickets are $8 to $12 and are available through the Theatre 29 Web site theatre29.com, or by calling the box office at 760-361-4151.
