Beginning next Monday, the B Street Theatre will present “An Evening of the Supernatural and the Surreal,” a 2006-07 Intern Company showcase. The showcase will feature two one-act plays: John Patrick Shanley’s “Where’s My Money” and Richard Dresser’s “At Home.” Curtain will be at 8 p.m. next Monday (May 21), Sunday, May 27, and Monday, May 28, with artistic associate John Lamb directing the productions.
Nine college graduates, who were recruited from around the country, make up the Intern Company. While in residence in Sacramento, they received professional training through seminars led by B Street Theatre Acting Company member Kurt Johnson. And they performed monologues after each Wednesday night performance.
Interns were also conscripted for numerous duties at the theater, including house management, stage management and facility maintenance.
Interns making their professional debuts this year were Charles Keenan and Lindsay Carter, in the world premiere “Throwing Parties,” and Nicole Disson in “What the Butler Saw.” Laurie Geigel, Vickie Hall, Jennifer Baumgardner, Josiah Correl and Mark Richardson all worked in the B Street Theatre Family Series (formerly Children’s Theatre of California).
This year, B Street also had its first scenic design intern, Toi Whitaker, who designed the sets for “What the Butler Saw,” “The Princess and the Pauper” and the currently running “The Clean House.”
No admission will be charged to the intern showcase, but donations will be accepted, with proceeds benefiting the interns. Reservations are encouraged.
The B Street Theatre is at 2711 B St., behind Stanford Park Baseball Field. For information: (916) 443-5300.
