What’s On Stage for June in Fresno and the Valley? Something Original. . .

This June is a little light compared to last year, but that just means the Valley is loading the big guns for July! There is plenty of great theater to see this month, though, and you’ll probably get to see enough of it to go guilt-free!


Something Original in June:

Selma Arts Center will produce and host a series of original short plays written and directed by the local community. Many of the participants are up-and-comers in the area, getting their feet wet with original work.

On the docket are:

  • El Norteño written and directed by Rodolfo Robles Cruz
  • High Plain Sisters written by Matt Robinson, directed by Summer Session
  • Lunacy written by Summer Session, directed by Deseree Whitt
  • Las Hermanas written and directed by Lia Dewey
  • The Upperhand written by Haley White, directed by Christopher Ortiz-Belcher

The production doesn’t yet have information on the Selma Arts website or a Facebook event, but the dates are June 27th, 28th and June 29th so get it on your calendars.

I’ll send around an update as soon as more information is available.

Just an FYI: I focus primarily on university, community, independent and regional theater geared towards adults. I rarely list or cover high school or youth productions because there are far to many programs to list equitably.

If you’d like to send me information about your upcoming show for consideration on the blog or for listings in the What’s My Call Time Newsletter, e-mail press releases or requests for reviews to heather.parish@yahoo.com.
