Orlando Senior Actors Prove They've 'Still Got It' in Short Attention Span Play Festival II
With Orlando being the world's entertainment destination and a perfect place to retire, it only makes perfect sense that there would be a theatre offering senior actors an opportunity to share their talents with the community. That is exactly what MCP Still Got It Players South is accomplishing!
Artistic Director, Debbie Lannen relocated to Orlando from Detroit, MI in 2014. She was the creator of a successful senior acting troupe in MI and assumed there would something similar already in existance in the Central Florida area. She found that was not the case.
"I was surprised to find that there was no theatre exclusively for the mature actor (over the age of 50). Older actors have a great deal of talent and are searching for an opportunity to share it with their community. I knew there was a need for this type of entertainment. I needed to find the perfect venue. Magic Curtain Productions at 2860 South Alafaya Trl. Orlando, Fl. 32828 has offered to make us part of their family."
MCP Still Got It Players South opened their inaugural production with Short Attention Span Play Festival I - 5 short plays (including a World Premiere) in one performance. Audiences enjoyed the first event and so the actors are now in rehearsals for Short Attention Span Play Festival II opening May 4-7, 2017. Plays to be featured are: Black Friday Farce (Jonathon Joy), Red Jello Jigglers (Tina Jens & John Weagly), Epiphany (David MacGregor), The Car Is Gone (Scott Mullen), Troupe (Ron Fromstein) and Priscilla the Precious (Debbie Lannen).
