THEATRE FOR SCANDAL is a comedy loosely inspired by Sheridan’s School for Scandal. It involves a group of actors who begin to spread rumors that one of the most flamboyantly gay members of their group is secretly straight. Anthony Hamilton, played by Stephen Poer last seen in The Last Days of Oscar Wilde, plots to wreak vengeance on a macho stud (Aaron Ramos) who has betrayed a female friend.
Everyone gossips, especially Jacosta (Greg Hinojosa) but in the theatre world it’s amplified. Rumors and scandal can sometimes be fun, but at whose expense? Ultimately, you never really know what’s true or false, so sometimes it’s best to be silent.
The show has a handful of ATAC award-winning actors, educators, and directors. Cortez is a founding Company member of The Magik Theatre, former Artistic Director of the Cameo Theatre and current head of Killer Productions producing murder mysteries. Multi-award winning Director, Greg Hinojosa has had a long standing association as Artistic Consultant for the Magik Theatre and is the former Artistic Director of the Woodlawn Theatre. Jose DeHoyos, who plays the Tin Man, is an Adjunct Professor at San Antonio College and is the Fine Arts Program Coordinator at Southwest ISD. “Having talent like this is perfect for this type of comedic show”, Erwin said.
The show is the third of productions by Bernard J. Taylor planned at Woodlawn Pointe (directly opposite Jefferson High School). The show will be presented in the Auditorium which seats 300. Woodlawn Pointe is located in a very pleasant neighborhood with easy parking.
