In Like a Lion

March 3rd, 2011 josepharagon Comments off

A busy couple of months. Some highlights:

Last month, I participated in a reading of Sargent and Victor, a piece created by Winnipeg playwright Debbie Patterson. The script was stitched together from verbatim fragments of interviews Debbie conducted with the residents and businesspeople of Winnipeg’s West End. We performed readings at two West End churches for the very community the piece was about (and for the very people that were interviewed). It was strange and at the same time very cool performing characters based on people you know are in the audience. The cast also featured Arne MacPherson, Marsha Knight and Laura Olafson.

It looks like Hersteria, the musical I’m writing with Sharon Bajer, is hitting the Fringe! Winnipeg Studio Theatre is producing our neurotic-women musical this summer at the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival in the lush and spacious Prairie Theatre Exchange mainstage. So along with Illuminati II, that makes two Aragon-composed musicals you’ll be exposed to this July.  Please make sure your vaccinations are up to date.

Speaking of Illuminati II, Kiss The Giraffe Productions is priming for it by remounting the first Illuminati: The Musical, to be produced in late April. This will provide folks with the chance to refresh themselves on the continuing saga, and provide us with the chance to raise funds so that the saga can continue. Stay tuned for more details.
