NEW YORK — On Wednesday, May 20th, 2015, The Open End Repertory Theatre (OERT) will present “Open-End”–an evening of one-act plays–as part of the SOHO International Film Festival at New York City’s famed June Havoc Theatre, 312 W 36th St #1, New York, NY 10018.
The OERT–established in 2001– is considered a Theatre Company like no other, dedicated to the preservation of classic American playwrights and new living playwrights along with a diverse multi-ethnic cast that brings a method of non-traditional casting into the mix. Their goal is simply “to keep alive, plays from the past and present, making the actors first responsibility to the dream that is envisioned by the playwright, and to have actors come together to create with their own flesh and blood, imagination, senses, thoughts and actions –the dream – vision by the playwright. When the actor serves the play, he then possesses the proper environment for the theatre.”
Director Fred Siretta–who has studied and performed professionally for over 40 years–has been working with the OERT for over a decade, and has made notable appearances on Broadway, TV, and in Films. A recipient of the National Dance Awards “Best Choreographer of the Year” Award in 1987, he’s choreographed for Cable, for TV Pilots, and taught dance and drama for many years in both New York and Los Angeles.
With an accomplished cast that includes Lancelot E. Theobald Jr.- the multi-talented supporting actor and lead-choreographer for new film “At The Top of The Pyramid” by Slamgate Productions and 2015 People of Distinction Humanitarian Award winner, Angela Rostick– actress/dancer/director who’s astounded audiences as Sarah Jane Lewis in Sabura Rashid’s “Queens of Heart”, Skylark Media Picture’s own Lindsay Johnson and more, Open-End is a production set out to accomplish a specific goal; “For the actor to create the playwright’s vision to the highest demands, and to respect the playwright’s works. OERT has its roots in New York”.
