Everyman the Musical

The Ancient One is flying tonight. He just got home from the world premiere performance of Everyman the Musical at California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). The script is based on the 15th century play Everyman. A project of the Dominguez Bridge Theatre Company, It was written by Bill DeLuca, with music included, to include recognition of the good work carried out by community organizations throughout the South Bay of Los Angeles County.

This is a special play for The Ancient One. He performs 2 roles; Yahweh (one of the gods) in Act I and Knowledge (a professor) in one of the 3 Act IIs. After the first act, the audience is divided into separate groups that rotate between each of the 2nd acts before returning to the main theatre for Act III. It is made more special being directed by Naomi Buckley whom The Ancient One met on this same stage in his first acting performance ever in A Shayna Maidel in 1994; Naomi was a first semester freshman at the time and they have performed together in 3 other plays since then.

Everyman the Musical continues at the CSUDH University Theatre (1000 E. Victoria Street, Carson, CA) April 18, 24 and 25 at 8:00 p.m. and April 26 at 2:00 p.m.
