‘SOLOs Episode 8: Running the Gamut’ premieres May 14

BRATTLEBORO — “SOLOs Episode 8: Running the Gamut” - a video montage of monologues by seven area performers filmed by Brattleboro Community Television - premieres simultaneously on BCTV and on YouTube Friday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m.

The show features Veronica Stevens as Eliza Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion; Joel Kaemmerlen in “Charles,” written and directed by Michael Nethercott; Fred Lawrence in his original “A Windy Tale from a Traffic Jam”; Marisa Imôn in her original, “The Reason I'll Never Know if my Mother Is Losing her Mind”; Anneli Curnock in Hamlet, Act I, Scene ii, by William Shakespeare; John Moran in three poems of war: “The Man He Killed,” “Base Details,” and “Dulce Et Decorum Est”; and Thomas Ely as the great and powerful Oz.

The live performance is capped with an online “talk back” immediately following, where audience members can chat with cast, directors, producers, and technical staff.

Each episode of SOLOs - a co-production of the Rock River Players and the Hooker-Dunham Theater - is filmed on the Hooker-Dunham stage.

Annie Landenberger, Rock River Players' founder, produced Episode 8, the latest in a series conceived and launched by Rock River Players' Bahman Mahdavi and Hooker-Dunham Director Jon Mack last fall as a way to keep the lively arts alive during the pandemic.

“It's been sort of 'if you build it they will come,'” Landenberger said about this episode.
