Work is the common thread in this summer’s edition of SceneShop. The work we do, the gig we want, the employment we used to enjoy, the obligation we perceive as our “job”... all of these ideas are touched on in six original pieces that comprise “SceneShop:  J. O. B.”

Three performers - Eugene H. Chandler, Travis J. Fant and Michael Wittman are making their SceneShop debuts. The entire ensemble includes A.J. Blake, Steven Cashion, Michael Carver-Simmons, Debbie Dacus, Joshua Eguia, Peggy Bott Kirby, Steven McGaw, Dale Shelton and Allison Willoughby. 

The show will include:

“The Evaluation” by Kyle Irion 
A young man’s 90-day-performance review is the launch pad for a flight into absurdity, and a struggle for momentary power.

“Mulligan’s” by Dale Shelton and Allison Willoughby
Chaos, with a side of frustration, are the plat du jour for workers in a busy eatery. 

“Byway” by Nicholas Irion
Woodworking is both an art and a craft, requiring patience, determination and even a kind of grace. The same can be said for raising a son. 

“Mine Likes It When She Don’t See Me” by Chris E. Gepp
For some, a clear path in life presents itself early.  For others- like Simon- one has to try different options, like shopping for a jacket. Sometimes, things just don’t fit. 

“Home. School.” by Steven Alan McGaw
Micah recalls his mother‘s emphatic instruction that caring for a puppy would be his responsibility.  In a tumultuous growing up, he learns many lessons. 

“A Long, Damned Night” by Natalie Gaupp and Steven Alan McGaw
At Opal’s Highway Hideway, a beer joint off the West Texas interstate, they usually play cards to pass the time. One night, they don’t. 

Austin Brown serves as Lighting Designer for this edition of the ‘Shop, and John Jentry Kellam and Dale Shelton provide technical assistance. 

SceneShop always features live music before the show and at intermission. Pasticcio will play on August 2 and 8; on Saturday, August 9, City Lights Singers take the stage.
