SHAME ON YOU (TUBE) AIRS DEC 3, 21:00 ON CBC R1 IDEAS

My new documentary Shame on You (tube) airs Thursday Dec 3 at 21:00 on CBC Radio 1 IDEAS.

FMI or to listen to the show on your computer: 

 We are watched. Caught on ubiquitous cell phone cameras. Tweeted in real time. Judged by a capricious social media jury.  Andy Warhol predicted that everyone would have 15 minutes of fame.  Kelley Jo Burke ponders how we live in a world where everyone might have 15 minutes of shame.

Hey, on a day of good news, I can also announce I'm teaching a special section of THAC 260 Acting Theory and Practice at the University of Regina Theatre Dept. this fall. This section is specially offered for those using English as a second language, or who have other challenges (like anxiety) with public performance---or any theatre students looking for a particular focus on text work, breath, presence and liveness. We're going to have an awesome time!

And so it begins....Jeffery Straker and I are making a musical.

"Excited to share this! I've partnered with the multi-talented writer, playwright, woman of words, director/producer Kelley Jo Burke, to write --- a musical! the show is a glimpse through story & song at 3 days & nights of a summer camp for sexual minority youth - it's a story about coming IN.... to yourself. Songs & stories from the show will be previewed March 2016 with The Golden Apple Theatre Company, with full production TBA following that. Exciting new territory - off we go!! BIG thx to the Saskatchewan Arts Boardfor helping with this creation."

Huge thanks to The Golden Apple Theatre CompanyCamp Fyreflysask and the Saskatchewan Arts Board for their irreplaceable support for this project.
