Meet Aristophanes! Rommel Sulit!

Rommel Sulit stars as Aristophanes in the world premiere of Reina Hardy's THE AFTERPARTY for Shrewd Productions A message from Rommel And here I thought I was signing up for another Shrewd burlesque show ... oh well, at least I get to pet Trey and stare at Shannon's butt. And of course getting to play the Father of Comedy is a reward in itself. So thanks Reina, thanks Liz and Shan. Big ... er ... shoes to fill. And you know what they say about guys with -- you know, come to think of it, Aristophanes probably came up with that joke. True or not, I'm going with it. About Rommel Sulit Rommel is a stage and film actor, producer and architect. He is excited to be in this, his third Shrewd show, w

Meet Kepler! Trey Deason

Trey Deason stars as Johannes Kepler in the world premiere of Reina Hardy's THE AFTERPARTY for Shrewd Productions A message from Trey I'm very excited to be returning to the funny, weird, and fascinating world of Reina Hardy. This is my second play of hers to be in, the first was Stars and Barmen (now titled Stargazers) which also played at the Vortex and was one of my favorite theatrical experiences ever. It's very special to be continuing the exploration of the world of Claire with this great cast and crew and Liz Fisher guiding us director. One quick note, since I've been asked this before: I'm not playing the same character here as I did in Stars and Barmen, even though the two plays are

Meet Claire! Shannon Grounds

Shannon Grounds stars as Claire in the world premiere of Reina Hardy's THE AFTERPARTY for Shrewd Productions A message from Shannon It's an honor and a privilege to perform the gorgeous words of the incomparable Reina Hardy, to get the chance to work under the direction of the incredibly talented Liz Fisher, and work with a group of such gifted and dedicated artists on The Afterparty. My cup is overflowing that I have the chance to work with such an amazing group of people. The Afterparty is an excellent opportunity to fulfill Shrewd's mission of producing new work, exploring new methods of creating and communicating with the audience, and serving as a megaphone for women-identified artist

Meet Henrietta! Valoneecia Tolbert

Valoneecia Tolbert stars as Henrietta Swan Leavitt in the world premiere of Reina Hardy's THE AFTERPARTY for Shrewd Productions A message from Valoneecia Valoneecia is so excited for this interesting take on the afterlife written by Reina Hardy and directed by Liz Fisher. While the idea of being in a production written by local play phenom Reina Hardy and the genius Liz Fisher in the directors seat was exciting enough, I started learning more about Henrietta Leavitt. Henrietta is a bright star whose singular discovery achievements acted as the cornerstone to Edwin Hubbles work and his discovery of a cephiad located in Andromeda (I see what you did there Reina!); Yet we know nothing about her

Meet M! Ja'Michael Darnell

Ja'Michael Darnell stars as Devon/M in the world premiere of Reina Hardy's THE AFTERPARTY for Shrewd Productions A message from Ja'Michael Have you ever had an opportunity fall from the sky and land in your palm that feels like it was faultlessly meant for you? That's what it feels like to be playing in The Afterparty. I fell in love with Reina's work when I experienced Annie Jump years ago and now I'm "starring" in her play. How celestial is that! I'm excited that I'm able to help tell a love story that challenges us to not take for granted our gifts as humans--bodies, feelings, intentions, and sex. About Ja'Michael Darnell Ja’Michael Darnell is an actor from Hearne, TX. He is excited to be
