First post of the new year! I'm excited to say I have not one, but two events that I'm involved in this upcoming week:
I'll be in attendance (in the flesh) at the GALA Hispanic Theatre
in DC with Young Playwrights Theater
, working my community ambassador skills. Our program for the evening, "New Writers Now! From Civil War to Civil Rights,"
explores the history of the district through a series of short plays written by young students and the elderly. The pre-show reception begins at 6:30 with the staged readings to follow at 7pm. Admission is free!
I'll also be in "attendance" (on the screen) for the CAmm Cine Lounge
, at the Creative Alliance at the Patterson
. There will be a showing of Running Storm Production's
2010 Baltimore 48 Hour Film Project
, "Time in a Trashcan." This event is also this upcoming Monday, February 7th at 7pm. Our film was recognized as an audience favorite when it first premiered, and director Dean Storm will be there to field questions about the film. Admission is only $8 for non-Creative Alliance members and $3 for members.
Hope you can make it out to one or the other! :)-Vanesswww.vanessastrickland.net
