2014 Pride Series Announced

Uptown Players will present a nine day festival of plays, a staged reading and a cabaret act celebrating Dallas Gay Pride.

ONE NIGHT ONLY
September 5th at 8pm
Amy and Freddy (Pride Series Kick Off)

 

Opening this year’s festival on the Kalita main stage will be a performance by music and comedy legends Amy Armstrong and Freddy Allen. This season marks Amy & Freddy’s 15th anniversary performing together. Based in Chicago, music and comedy legends Amy Armstrong and Freddy Allen have graced the stages coast-to-coast, both large and small, and in over 20 countries with their one-of-a-kind wit and musical prowess. They have had the pleasure of opening and sharing the spotlight with some familiar (and some not so familiar) names including Kathy Griffin, Mary Wilson and the Supremes, Phyllis Diller, Bea Arthur, Jennifer Holiday and Judy Gold to name a few. In 2009, Amy & Freddy were featured on national television on Entertainment Tonight as part of their work with the NBC reality show “America’s Got Talent.” With Dallas audiences, they are best known for their performances on RSVP cruises and at Uptown’s 2011 Pride Festival. This is a performance you won’t want to miss!

Made in Heaven by Jay Bernzweig - Presented by Uptown Players

Good Boys and True
September 6 @ 8pm, September 8 @ 745pm, September 12 @ 745pm, September 14 @ 4pm

Good Boys and True by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa – Presented by Uptown Players
The hothouse atmosphere of all-male boarding schools has inspired a whole body of literature and drama exploring themes of friendship, romance, honor and betrayal…Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's GOOD BOYS AND TRUE is a solid addition to the canon. It's a suspenseful mystery, compassionate character study and moving love story rolled into one. Prep-school senior Brandon Hardy is brilliant, athletic, popular and charming—the kind of student that makes St. Joe's School for Boys proud to call its own. However, his privileged life threatens to collapse when a disturbing videotape is found on campus. As the resulting scandal takes unexpected turns, Brandon's mother Elizabeth must sort fact from fiction from family and confront unsettling truths about her son, herself, and their life.

Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche
September 7 at 8pm, September 8 at 6pm and September 14 at 8:30pm

Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood - Presented by Uptown Players
It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, all self-described widows, are having their annual quiche breakfast. There is much talk of the history of this all-female institution, founded by a pioneering woman who stumbled in the woods upon a colony of hens. It should be noted that no meat has ever touched their quiche. Will they be able to keep their cool when Communists threaten their idyllic town?

Dishing It Out
Starring Paul J Williams


September 7 @ 4pm, September 11 @ 8pm, September 14 @ 2pm,

Paul J. Williams has long been known not only for his great comedic timing, but also his ability to create recognizable characters as a part of his show.  In Dishing It Out, Paul plays six different personas throughout the entire show. Taking place in a Southern cafeteria, the central character is a food server who seems to know everybody who comes through her line. Inevitably, each of these people become the other characters in the show, as we get a glimpse into the daily goings on of the lunchtime patrons of this Southern gathering place. From a chain-smoking real estate agent to a narrow-minded preacher (and others in between), DISHING IT OUT is a one-man tour de force capitalizing on Paul’s hilarious creativity and improv abilities, as the audience becomes patrons in the cafeteria as well, interacting with the characters on stage. Whether dishing out chicken fried steak, juicy gossip, or words of wit and wisdom, DISHING IT OUT has a hearty appetite for fun and laughter..
