For our May Talent on Tap, Dreamcatcher Entertainment had two Staged Readings both written by Andrew Sanford. There was a great energy in the room for both of these performances, with a lot of laughter & delivering strong messages.
A Night in the Life of Douglas P. Reed
In this Staged Reading we look at “A Night in the Life of Douglas P. Reed”, which was both directed and written by Andrew Sanford. The play follows a man named Douglas P. Reed (Sean Lanigan) who is down on his luck and ends up moving to New York City. He meets a fellow named Jonathan (Ryan Sprague), who has some interesting conversations with him and tries to convince him to join in his evil ways. Though comedic, it has deeper layers which deal with religion and making good decisions. This reading was very well received by the audience and could definitely be developed into a full-length play.
Between the Panels
“Between the Panels” directed by Keith Walker, follows a girl named Jamie (Claire Jacobs) who loves comic books so much that it consumes her life. She makes a living out of reviewing comics and running a fan site, which leaves little time for a social life. Her friend Krystine (Holly Dortch) tries to pull her away for an evening out, but fails. Suddenly, in a flash of lightning, Noble Knight (Chris Dippel), Jamie’ favorite superhero, appears. However, Jamie soon realizes that Noble Knight is not as noble or heroic as she had originally thought. The reading leads way to a lot of comedic instances as well as demonstrating that things are not always what they seem. This reading was also received very well by the audience and gave way to several questions during the Q&A session about different directions the story could go in the writing progresses.
Overall it was a very successful evening and Dreamcatcher Entertainment is excited to see how these staged readings written by Andrew Sanford will progress!
