NEXT FALL by Geoffrey Nauffts – Unseen Images Theatre (Orlando, FL)
The 2010 Tony Award Nominated play, “Next Fall”, is a modern day romance that asks the hard questions about commitment, unconditional love, and faith. Luke believes in God and Adam believes in everything else. “Next Fall” portrays the ups and downs of this unlikely couple’s five-year relationship with sharp humor and unflinching honesty. And when an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support… and answers. Exploring hot key issues such as hospital visitation rights, being gay and being a Christian, coming out to your parents, and love and acceptance, this play is relevant now more than ever.

“The Auditioneers Toolbox”
Serving a specific need for our Arts Community, this group will focus on the things actors need to find and get work. Audition notices, job postings for technicians, acting workshop/classes/seminars, photographers with headshot specials, and graphic designers for personalized websites. How many times have missed an audition because we missed the listing, or had to go wading through multiple outlets to find what we need. How many acting classes go unnoticed? This group has been redesigned and reimagined for just this purpose www.facebook.com/groups/234736336594945/
