Conundrum Stages to Present CAFE CONUNDRUM at Sunrise Civic Center, 8/8
After 6 years of variety showcases, Conundrum Stages will present its first ever production at the Sunrise Civic Center Theatre at 8 pm on August 8th. The production will feature a wide variety of exciting talent from across the tri-county spectrum.
Spotlighting both cabaret and coffee house acts, Café Conundrum will feature local stage actors, comedians, musical soloists, and performance poetry all in an effort to recognize the multi-faceted South Florida talent scene. A number of long-time contributors to Conundrum Stages presentations are slated to perform - including singers John Lariviere and Jeanne Lynn Gray, actors Fern Katz, Barry Katz, and Skye Whitcomb, comedians Rhett Thompson and Pam Bruno, and musicians Serena Stroppa and The Good Guy.

"We are excited to do our first ever production," says Kevin Johnson, president of Conundrum Stages. "And to do it with these talented artists/entertainers who have dedicated their time to our past presentations - I couldn't be happier to share the stage with them. Café Conundrum is going to go a long way towards showing our local audiences that there is true and incredible talent in these parts. Special thanks goes to Lily Mazurek and the City of Sunrise for giving Conundrum Stages this opportunity to perform."
Conundrum Stages was established and incorporated in 2008 as a multi-disciplined performance company providing platforms for Southeast Florida talent to showcase their material. Its origins go back as a play reading project in 2004 known as the Ghost Light Series featuring local stage artists in established works from playwrights from Arthur Miller to Anton Chekhov. After establishing its new operation, Conundrum expanded its programming to feature other disciplines of live performance including original music, poetry, comedy, and dance. Conundrum now has established recurring and annual showcases including The SpeakOut: An Evening of Poetry and Song, VOCAPALOOZA, Funny Business, Sirens & Strings: An Acou-chix Experience (2011-2013), and Holiday House. In 2012 Conundrum Stages reformatted the Ghost Light Series as a play reading festival and will return to Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale for its second edition in September.
