Andy Wickham in KEELY AND DU
I’m excited to be a part of the inaugural season of Actors Studio 66 in Albuquerque! One of the things I love about small theatre is how well it facilitates intimate stories about difficult subjects. When I read KEELY AND DU, a riveting and hard-hitting drama about rape, abortion, and freedom of choice, I understood why it was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. It’s suspenseful and dangerous as well as topical. Playing this summer at The Black Cat Cultural Center.
I’m Andy Wickham, an actor and writer who was born in New Mexico, grew up in Idaho, and spent most of my professional life in Los Angeles. I earned my way into SAG-AFTRA with voice work and am an experienced stage actor. Some of the lessons I’ve learned which are present in all my work include:
– Never waste people’s time.
– Your best teachers are your directors; listen to them.
– Never blame the audience.
– If you aren’t bringing yourself then what are you offering that any other person can’t provide? Be authentic.
This was the first Rant & Rave at Rogue Machine’s new home, the Matrix Theatre!
