Shunya Artistic Director Sara Kumar will be reprising her role in an encore performance of The Jeweler’s Shop, which we previously posted about here. The show will be Saturday, January 14, at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Theatre at University of St. Thomas. Tickets are being sold online at http://jp2forum.org/
We’ll be kicking off the new year with an informal play reading on Jan 6th, 2012 at 6:30 pm. We meet about monthly to read new plays, and everyone is welcome. This is a great way to get involved if you are interested in South Asian theatre or volunteering with Shunya. Email Sanjay@ShunyaTheatre.org for details.
Shunya’s own Mandar Sane (multiple music composition and performance credits, actor in Bricks and Lyrics) will be playing tabla for the song Within You Without You during Backspace’s December 29 show at Fitzgerald’s. The band is going to cover tunes from the Beatles and the Kinks. The show starts at 7pm, tickets are $15, and the proceeds go to charity.
We had a large and enthusiastic group at our play reading last Friday. Thanks to everyone who came out. We read a new play — a comedy that is still in progress, and a great time was had by all. If you are interested in joining us for future readings, sign up to receive our email newsletter (link is in the footer of all of the pages of this website).
