ESU National Shakespeare Competition 2021

I am proud to be asked to adjudicate for the

2021 English Speaking Union National Shakespeare Competition (SF area). 

As a huge Shakespeare-lover myself, and having just come from being a respondent for LENAEA, I can't wait to help guide more students in their craft.

BLM Vol 2 &3 

BLM3.JPG

I have been both Producer and Lead-Producer for our On-Line BLM Series during COVID-19 for SkyPilot Theatre Company.

BLM Vol 2

Featured 3 one-act plays that speak to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Two years ago, SkyPilot Theatre Company presented a One Act Festival that featured new plays based on Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and March for Our Lives.

At the time, there were too many great submissions to perform them all.

Now, we have taken the opportunity to present three more of the plays we received for Black Lives Matter that we really enjoyed with the goal of highlighting artists of color and continuing the discussion.

BLM Vol 3

​For “BLM Volume 3” series, the company is producing 3 short one-act plays written by black/mixed playwrights to perform for a virtual reading on the Zoom conference platform.

SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL

I signed on to Co Direct Seussical for The Fable Theatre company in their Inagural Production.

KV.jpg

I had the absolute pleasure of continuing 2019 by Assistant Directing ANOTHER show;

The revised version of Cleo Theo and Wu as well as MESS by/for and starring

Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds).

THE FEMIPRE (both shows in rep) went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 and performed in the Power Room at The Assembly Rooms.

Having understudied Kirsten as Lucy in the first iteration of Cleo Theo and Wu (CTW) at the end of 2018, I was so pleased to be working alongside my Director for the original CTW Lisa Sange Dring as her right hand.

The show was more streamlined for The Fringe (55 minutes!) and even included songs.

Proud producer of Marian

MARIAN: Or The True Tale of Robin Hood

Won a Scenie for Outstanding Production of a Comedy!

See our wonderful Reviews HERE

 


“From his first literary appearance in the 1370s to 2010’s Russell Crowe big-screen star, Robin Hood has kept audiences captivated for centuries. Adam Szymkowicz’s gender-bending latest may well be the most entertaining of the lot.”

The Young Writers Project- NOTE 2019


Each spring, Theatre of NOTE in Hollywood has a mini-season of five 10-minute, one-act plays written by high school kids from various schools in our community.

They are then directed and performed by professional actors in and outside of our company.


I personally had the wonderful pleasure of directing a piece called

Please Don't Change The Subject

about teen anxiety and depression with an incredibly talented group of actresses.


I'm quite proud of what we did in what little time we had.

Assistant Director of "1=0" NOTE

To my surprise and enjoyment, I started out 2019 by Assistant Directing at Theatre of NOTE in its World Premiere show 1=0

I worked hand-in-hand with my Banshee director James Carey and truly have been bitten by the Directing Bug.

The understudy Shows on Thursday 7th & 14th had the Alternative Cast's very own take on the characters with my own personal guidance...
