Be a REVOLTING extra Nov. 16

Roselawn Productions of Danville is looking for people to fill the seats of that city’s playhouse, the Kathryn Randolph Theater, as an extra in their current feature-length movie, REVOLTING. The scenes will be shot beginning at 4:30 p.m. this Sunday, November 16, after the afternoon’s performance of On Golden Pond.

“The scene to be filmed is from the play-within-the film, with the extras playing theater patrons,” says director/co-producer/co-writer Mike Boedicker in an e-mail to C-U Blogfidential. “I estimate the scenes will take two to three hours to shoot. The more people we can get, the better, so please feel free to invite others. Please dress as you would for a community theater show.”

REVOLTING is a comic farce about a playwright named Jeff who is talked into writing a sequel to his lone hit play, Madcap Murderesses, for his theater group in the hopes that repeat success will offset a financial slump. Hardly relishing the thought given his preference for drafting more serious fare, Jeff takes on the assignment without realizing that his creations plan to make his life a living hell.

This follow-up to Roselawn’s first feature, SHOW [see item: 5/14/06], stars Tolono resident Bill Kephart as Jeff and Kathryn Randolph/Red Mask Players veteran Sharon Tipsword as theater director Susan. REVOLTING co-producer Leslie Boedicker plays dual roles along with Julia Sullivan and Eric Sizemore as company actors and Madcap personae who conveniently materialize at all the wrong moments. Production began last month in Danville and Champaign and should finish by December, with mid-2009 targeted as a completion date.

The theater is located at 601 N. Vermillion St. in Danville; the filmmaker can be reached at mboedicker [at] hotmail [dot] com.
