26 PRESENTS: NET-FLIX AND KILL Continues Late-Night Comedy Series at Pride Arts Center
26 PRESENTS: NET-FLIX AND KILL, the third installment of "26," opening September 30 and running up to the Saturday before Halloween, will take on a horror theme for its twenty-six scenes of horror-comedy and straight up horror written by various guest writers.
This is the third round of the ongoing late-night series "26"- a performance based on 26 scenes each inspired by a letter of the alphabet. The guest writers received letters at random and were asked to choose a word that starts with that letter to serve as the title of their piece. The result is a collection of sketch comedy, dance, music, poetry, and experimental theater performed by a cast of 10.
Following a public preview on Wednesday, September 27 at 8 pm, It will run every Saturday at 10:30PM September 30-October 28 in the Broadway, Pride Arts Center, at 4139 N. Broadway Ave.
The cast of 26 PRESENTS: NET-FLIX AND KILL will be Edward Fraim, Myesha-Tiara McGarner, Devi Reisenfeld, Julia Louise Trevor, Catherine Cable-Barber, Dan Jackson, Haley Mozer, Winter Jones, Emma Jo Schumacher, and Ryan Jendrycki. Understudies for the performance are: Matt Faries, Christopher Kauffman, Kayla Cole and Carolyn Plurad.
Guest writers for this round are David Cerda, Susan Messing, Rachael Mason, Derek Van Barham, Robert Bouwman, Todd Schaner, Allison Heinz, Kallie Rolison, Tim Skau, Daniel Polonka, Lindsay Bartlett, Brian Gore and Ross Christian. The production team will include Brian Gore (Director), Leslie Halverson (Assistant Director), Megan Chaney (Stage Manager), Michael Brooks (Set Designer) and Kallie Rolison (Sound Designer).
