The Pelican Theatre’s 2015 production, LET’S MAKE A SCENE: Three Short Comedies, will have five performances this year: March 29th at 7 pm; April 6th at 5 pm and 7 pm; and April 7th at 5 pm and 7 pm. All performances will be at the Teatro de la Ciudad in La Paz, and, as last year, the performances will be intimate – with both the actors and the audience on the stage.

This year’s production consists of three plays, each about 15 minutes long: Anything for You, by Cathy Celesia; History Lesson, by David Lindsay-Abaire; and Siobhan, by John Augustine. The production features the acting talents of Celia Devault, Elia Redfield, and Kat Bennett.

Celia, originally from England, spent time in the US before moving to Baja California Sur. She and her husband Billy are long-time residents of Todos Santos. Celia spends most of the year as Customer Service Manager for the magazine Journal del Pacifico. During the summers, however, she returns to the US to work bartending and catering events. Celia performed a monologue from “The Vagina Monologues” with The Naked Acting Company in December of 2012, and “Bourbon and Laundry” in 2013. When asked to play the role of God in the first Pelican Theatre production, she found it hard to say no.

Elia Redfield is originally from the US, but has been residing in La Paz for a number of years. Now, in retirement, her love of theatre was revived during her involvement with The Naked Acting Company here in La Paz as an actor and fundraiser. Last year she appeared in “She’s Fabulous” at the Pelican Theatre.

Kat Bennett, originally from the US, has lived in La Paz for a decade. She and her husband Bruce have owned and operated Allende Books for nearly seven years. Kat performed a scene from “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” with The Naked Acting Company, as well as a monologue from “The Year of Magical Thinking.” Also with The Naked Acting Company, she performed a scene from “The Book of Liz,” and, with Celia Devault, “Laundry and Bourbon.” This will be her first appearance with The Pelican Theatre.

Tickets are on sale now at Allende Books in La Paz and El Tecolote Bookstore in Todos Santos. Price is 100 pesos per ticket. All ticket sales will be pre-event; no tickets will be sold at the door. Wine and cheese will be served after the opening night’s performance.
