Support one of Kaleidoscope Actors!

If you don't know...our very own Cindy Narayan has left NYC and moved to LA to continue pursuing her dreams of tv/film work. She has landed the role of Nancy, a sweet friend and voice of reason, in a romantic comedy/short film called "A Chance Unexpected." Check out their IndieGoGo page. 11 hours left to raise $272 of their $2,500 goal!


Happy shooting, Cindy!

One of our main goals is to not only work with and bring to life other writers' scripts, we also want to create a space to write our own material. The 4 of us will be writing our own scripts, casting and producing our work. At each 10 FEET UNDER, we'll read from one of the scripts. At the Aug event, we read from Cindy's 1st script "Old Friendships Die Hard." Cindy wrote the script purely by inspiration and it has since been workshopped numerous times by other writers and artist friends. We are now in pre-production having secured a director and in weekly rehearsals. You can see Cindy's piece read at the reading via our Youtube channel - KaleidoscopeAct.

Tonight's the night! Our 5th "10 Feet Under" event will go down starting at 6:30pm in the Bridge Theatre at Shetler Studios (244 W 54th St b/w 8th Ave & Broadway, 12th FL). We have a FULL event so please be on time. The cost of admittance is $10, $15 includes a glass of wine. Come see what all the hype is about!

We received a very gracious email from guests from our very first "10 Feet Under." They were a couple from Finland visiting the city. Lodric & Dave were doing some street team promotion for our event...we had a pretty light crowd considering it was our 1st event AND it was raining. The guys convinced this couple to stop by our event. Check out an excerpt below...and for more details about tonight's event, check the previous post. See you soon!

A few months have gone by since we were in NYC, and it has been so great to hear (by email from kaleidoscope actors :) that you guys got it all started. We were honoured to witness the first 10 FEET UNDER night back then in the Village - Caffe Del Mare - and for us it was an unbelievable and speechless night, you guys just rock (hope that the OM Factory yoga giveaway went to good hands ;)!! We've been watching you lately from youtube, and it is so nice to see that things are going great!!
- Jenni & Sami from Finland
