Rogue Festival 2013

by Lorie Lewis Ham




Dinner With Dan had its closing performance this last Sunday at Rogue Festival–which is sad for anyone who didn’t get to see it. This is another production from Jump Right In Productions and is another original piece, (see our review of If I Could Tell Me in our Rogue Reviews post).

The 12th annual Rogue Performance Festival kicked off Thursday. Instead of showcasing a selection of performers on a makeshift stage, the Rogue acts strutted their stuff on the stage of the Tower Theatre! Old favorites, new discoveries, and old friends in new material all gave a taste of what audiences will see over the next nine days.

9 TIME BEST-OF-FEST AWARD WINNER, Gemma Wilcox (from London, UK), returns for her fourth Rogue Fest with a sparkling new one-woman multi-character show, exploring the unexpected twists and turns of life, love and being on the road…
In Magical Mystery Detour, Wilcox plays 25+ characters (Human, Furry, Feathered, Mythical and Steel!). It is humorous, moving and highly original piece of physical theatre.

The Chaser: Rogue 2013

by Bremner Duthie



My Rogue Festival show – The Chaser – at the Starline Theatre – was inspired by a story about the last night of Vaudeville and a quote from the infamous Sophie Tucker. Sophie was one of the most famous performers of the first half of the 20th Century; she was called, ‘The Last of the Red Hot Mamas’. Vaudeville was the most popular entertainment in North America for decades, but when film and radio came along, Vaudeville began to decline. The last Vaudeville theatre shifted to playing movies on the 16th of November 1932. That was the end of Vaudeville and the end of a livelihood for thousands of performers.

My journey to the Rogue Festival began over a decade ago when I started a short story code-named “Crazy Grandma” that eventually became The Secret Adventures of Fat Woman & Remedial Girl, a literary novel dealing with issues of life, death, and madness narrated by a not-so-bright eleven-year old with the vocabulary of a second-grader. It also contained a lot of poop jokes. By the time I hit the eighth year and the fourth draft, I realized my book might never be published.

Attention all you jazz lovers! If you’re any kind of swinger, you need to beat a path down to the 2013 Rogue Performance Festival show, Moonlight and Love Songs (Mostly). It’s chock full of hot jazz by Scats on The Sly, crazy vintage visuals and chocolate to boot!

I am happy to back at Rogue Festival for my fifth time, and this year I am emceeing burlesque shows, teaching improv at Severance, co-hosting the morning coffee salon at the home of Marcel Nunis, and performing my new show Cathedral City at Tower Lounge. I’m not surprised that I’ve become such a fixture at Rogue. I love it, and every year I look forward to returning to the Tower District.

Renee “Solitaire” Newlove is this year’s Co-Producer/Performer Relations for the Fresno Rogue Festival and has been involved with the Rogue Festival for several years. Since this is her last year in this position it seemed a perfect time to chat with her about her experiences, and a little about this year’s festival which is just a couple of weeks away!

The stage can give insight into being human. It can entertain, spinning wondrous fairytales. Dancing with Demons, a new work by playwright and actress Shana Cordon, accomplishes both feats.

There is a saying “You have to kiss a few toads before you meet your prince charming.” I can attest to its truth. Almost everyone has had a “toad” in their life, but don’t feel bad if haven’t. I likely took yours and am not the least bit sorry. Even though making fun of myself is the mainstay of my comedy, I find almost nothing more rewarding than making fun of my ex and the other men I’ve dated.
