Furious Turns 7...Welcomes New Ensemble Members

posted by Nick Cernoch at 3:42 PM
Furious Theatre celebrated it's 7th Anniversary this past Sunday.  April 26 marks the date of the very first public performance of Saturday Night at the Palace, Furious Theatre Company's inaugural production in 2002.

The Furious Ensemble that has been built in stages (starting with 6 founders in 2002 and growing to 15 in 2007 when its last "class" of members was added) grew again on the company's latest Anniversary with the addition of Matt Pelfrey and Megan Goodchild.

Pelfrey has been Furious Theatre's award-winning playwright in residence since 2007 when the company produced his play, An Impending Rupture of the Belly as it's first World Premiere.  His plays have been produced across the U.S. with recent productions and workshops in New York and San Francisco. Matt teaches playwriting at UCLA and continues to write Furiously...we're very proud that he calls Furious his artistic home.  Read more about Matt and his writing here.

Megan Goodchild first appeared on the Furious stage in Playboy of the Western World back in 2002.  After leaving L.A. to pursue an apprenticeship with Actor's Theatre of Louisville, she returned in 2006 and re-connected with Furious, working as a designer, assistant director and most recently as an actress again this season in US Drag, for which she was nominated, along with fellow ensemble member Katie Davies, for an LA Weekly Theatre Award.

Congratulation, thank you and welcome to Matt and Megan and Happy Anniversary to Furious Theatre!
