It’s Showcase Time, Baby!

Filed under: projects — Biographer @ 9:38 am

Round up the kids, de-ice the freezer and tie down the dog, it’s time for the second Cricket Feet Casting Actors Showcase.

What in Sam-Hill is this? Well, a showcase is where a bunch of actors put on a bunch of scenes for people in the entertainment industry (talent agents, managers, casting directors, etc). The Cricket Feet Showcase features about an hour of amazingly funny scenes, free booze/food/parking for industry guests and that’s it! The show takes place July 24th, 25th and 26th at the Promenade Playhouse on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, CA. For information/reservations/directions/dancing bunny photos visit the link above. If you’re not in the “biz” and you want to go there’s a special preview performance July 16th at 7:30PM. To get into that one go to the link above and don’t use the RSVP form on the website but follow the directions for alternate registration.

This sounds like a dream come true. But wait, you ask yourself, what does Eitan have to do with all of this? What’s the catch? Well, as you might have guessed this isn’t random publicity for a showcase. The bad news: Eitan is not only producing the showcase with his good buddy Bonnie Gillespie but he’s acting in it as well (he’s like M. Night Shyamalan, won’t get cast in something unless he casts himself). So in addition to an hour of hilarious comedy there will also be one scene featuring Eitan. Feel free to take a nap during that one. Or get up and go to the bathroom. Or even vomit quietly in your seat. No one will judge you.

But you should still go, even if you have to watch Eitan act. That’s how good the showcase is going to be. At the last one various industry guests remarked, “This is the best showcase I’ve ever been to” and a few industry guests were having so much fun shmoozing/drinking the free booze they had to be asked to leave so the crew could shut down the theater at around midnight. All this in spite of Eitan. Amazing, no?
