Bring it One Acts!

Hello RSP fans, family and followers. My name is Ashley and I am one of RSP’s newest members. Since joining, it has been a rapid ride of fun, meetings, rehearsals and workshops. It feels amazing to be a part of a community of artists that love to create, whether we are working on a new play or breaking out in a spontaneous dance break. I promise…it is always a good time. That being said, it is even more exciting to finally perform for Rising Sun. Every year, Rising Sun holds a FREE One Act Reading Series that last for several months. At the end of the readings, we select the best plays (with the help of our audience members) for our summer festival. Bring it on one acts…we are ready!

This Tuesday night we will be holding our April One Act Reading and it is FREE. Where and when you ask? 7pm Under St Marks. 94 St Marks Place @ 1st Avenue. Be a part of RSP for a night and be there. The One Acts will be directed by Mia Anderson and Flor Bromley and I am lucky to perform in two of the readings.

Whether you bring a date, friends or come alone, come out and hang with RSP. It will be fun. Guaranteed.

Back in the Swing

Samantha here. What a lovely RSP family we are becoming! We just had our ensemble intensive 2 weeks ago and I really feel it morphed us into a cohesive group, which was the goal. We had some fantastic workshops, in which we had the opportunity to work with each other in a safe environment.

On a different note, both the newbies and the old members have been incredibly supportive now that I'm back in the city. (I was away for a month in California due to my mom's sudden passing.) I can't thank my theatrical family enough for expressing concern and love.

Our yard sale is coming up on Sunday by Astoria Park and we are about to speed ahead into the One Act Festival and the Speakeasy! So much to do! Stay tuned.
