The San Francisco Examiner had Speakeasy on the front page today (December 11th). Inside was a gleaming article, featuring this quote from Jean Schiffman:
"...because I’d been watching the sexy chanteuse Velma (Megan Wicks) having an embarrassing drug- and alcohol-fueled meltdown in the cabaret. That was after my encounter with her in the hallway, where she was having a hissy fit because she had to share her dressing room with the chorus girls."
The 2015-2016 Intern Showcase: Stop Kiss premiered at B Street Theatre this weekend. The production was dedicated to the victims of the atrosious LGBT hate crimes in Orlando, FL.
"Our hearts reach out to those who have faced tremendous distress last night and this morning. The story we are telling is not one that can be ignored or pushed aside. It happened in 2001, and it is still happening today. Quiet literally. We love you and we support you, Orlando. This one is for you."
Megan will be traveling all over Northern California on the 30th Fantasy Festival School Tour with B Street Theatre. The tour reaches elementary and middle schools within a 150 mile radius of Sacramento. The show runs for 10 weeks, 12 show per week.
There will be a public performance at B Street Theatre on May 14 at 10am!
-Davis Enterprise calls Megan Wicks "simply electric as she paints the picture and characters of her ghost story. Aided by the lighting design of Les Solomon, she strides around the stage, striking dramatic poses that grab the audience and holds them until she moves again."
-Sacramento Sidetrack says "Mary Shelley, beautifully played by Megan Wicks, alternated between narrator and her role as the author seamlessly"
