Cricket Feet Showcase – RSVP now!

Filed under: projects,showcase — Eitan @ 12:50 pm

RSVP Now for the 3rd Cricket Feet Casting Actors Showcase November 6th, 7th and 8th at the Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica.

What’s in it for you?  Well, if you happen to be a member of the entertainment industry you’ll get to see 34 very castable actors in professionally directed scenes in a little over an hour.  We’ll ply you with free parking, free food and free booze.  You were most excited by the free parking, weren’t you?  This is LA after all.

Now what do I mean by “industry?”  I mean someone who’s instrumental in getting actors jobs.  That could be a producer, employed writer (yes you can come, even if you’re on strike), casting director, agent or manager.

CASTING: 3rd Cricket Feet Showcase

Filed under: showcase — Biographer @ 3:22 pm

The breakdown for the 3rd Cricket Feet Casing Actors Showcase has just been released on Actors Access.

Actors from all walks of life will be submitting their headshots, writing personalized notes and in various other ways cowering before Eitan and his (and his producing partner Bonnie Gillespie‘s) mighty showcase. They will marvel at the amazing amount of industry turnout at the last showcase, they will be happily shocked at the amazingness of director Annie Wood and they will hope and pray they get a chance to audition for this project. Then they will walk in to the audition room, see Eitan and laugh at him.

3rd Cricket Feet Showcase – Call for Scenes

Filed under: showcase — Biographer @ 4:16 pm

Want to hear something insane?  The last showcase was a resounding success.  Industry turnout was so high that family/friends/ staff were told not to come on the regular nights.  The staff was ecstatic, everyone else was a little bummed.  So hot on the heels of the July showcase the same team that brought you the 2nd Cricket Feet Showcase and the 1st Cricket Feet Showcase are proud to announce… The 3rd Cricket Feet Showcase!!!  Original title, no?

The show will be at the Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica (on the 3rd Street Promenade) November 6th, 7th and 8th with a very “special” (no free booze/food) show for family/friends/alumni on November 4th.  This showcase will be directed by superstar Annie Wood.

The last showcase consisted of entirely original material.  The producing team figured this would probably be more interesting than having yet another showcase full of superbly overdone scenes by Arthur Miller, Christopher Durang and from Good Will Hunting.  They were right.

So, the crew is now accepting submissions from writers for the 3rd Cricket Feet Showcase.  They’re looking for:  4 minute long, comedic, two person scenes that hopefully have nothing to do with the “industry.”  All submissions must be accompanied by a release form, which can be found here.  It’s not too scary, you just promise not to sue, allow the showcase to use your material without compensation and allow the showcase people to edit your material if need be.  Instructions for submitting material are included on the release form.

Anyone who reads this bio (like that lonely guy in Nova Scotia who writes Eitan weekly love letters) are encouraged to submit.  Heck, even Eitan had a scene in the last showcase.  The bar must be pretty low.
