Meet the cast of C’est la Vie (or Smiling at Life): Joel Perkin
Proud Mary Theatre Company continues its ground-breaking Brand New Spanking Play Series with C’est ls Vie (or Smiling at Life), a collection of four interconnected one-act plays by Upstate playwright C. Robert Jones, debuting LIVE on FACEBOOK on Tuesday, June 9 @ 8 p.m.
C’est la Vie is directed by Aaron Pennington and starring three brilliant Upstate actors: Libby Riggins, Joel Perkin and J.R. Bloomer.
Joel has been doing theater for 25 years, mostly acting in musicals and Shakespeare, and loves that he has a chance to help blaze a trail in virtual theater. Favorite roles include Jesus in Godspell, Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet, the Beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Michael in Dancing at Lughnasa, and Man in Chair in The Drowsy Chaperone. In March he performed as Daddy Cane in Bright Star at Tryon Little Theater. He’s also directed several shows, most recently Almost, Maine and The Humans at Tryon Little Theater. When not helping teachers increase student achievement, Joel runs lines with his cats in Landrum. He is excited to be a part of his third Zoom Reading with the Proud Mary Theatre after Blue Camp and The Vultures.
Our BRAND SPANKING NEW VIRTUAL PLAY SERIES streams on Tuesday nights with a new work read by some of the Upstate’s most amazing actors.
