There's a new game in town, and it sounds amusing. The Actors Cafe is hosting an "Actors' Showcase" on Thursdays at 8 p.m.
Host and talent agent Jeffrey Nightbyrd (Acclaim Talent) is billing it as half "Gong Show," half monologue contest. The idea is that actors get on stage, perform their favorite excerpt for five minutes and see if the crowd digs.
No dig? Gong.
There will be eight contests, and the best from each will advance towards the finals.
I'll be a fly on the wall tonight. All flyswatters will be confiscated at the door.
WHAT: Actors' Showcase.
WHEN: 8 p.m. Thursdays.
WHERE: 1401 Fairfield Ave. (formerly Bear's Cafe), Shreveport. Questions? (318) 367-0008.
