Meetings are the central reason for SoloTogether. Solo performance is a lonely life. Most of us have written our own programs, done our own marketing, made our own bookings, stage managed our own performances and just about everything else you might think of for a theatrical production. Getting together with other performers allows us to share ideas and experiences with like minded artists. Some of our members have been performing solo programs for years, others are just starting out, but everyone seems to find something to contribute.
Ted Zalewski, our illustrious leader, usually begins the meetings with some general notes of interest and then we take turns with short updates on what we’ve been up to. Next we try to move on to a general discussion on a topic of interest. Past topics have included, researching characters, writing scripts, marketing, venues, anecdotes from programs, etc. Members supply the topics and anything that touches on solo performance is fair game.
Once a year we break from our usual structure and have a meeting with refreshments. This Spring meeting is one of the most attended (could it be actors are always looking for free food?) meetings. Good food and perhaps a nice cold beverage or two make for a more casual way for us to get to know each other a little better.
Meetings are open to all, performers and presenters alike. Feel free to join us at our next meeting.
The next SoloTogether meeting will be our Spring meeting, at the Carriage House at Longfellow House, 105 Brattle St., Cambridge, time and date yet to be determined. If you're a solo performer interested in attending or would like to learn more about SoloTogether please contact:
Everyone at SoloTogether would like to give special thanks to the Longfellow National Historic Site for their generous support of living history theatre.
