Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a touching and warmhearted play about learning how to stay afloat in the deep water of day-to-day living where date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit abound.
WARNING: The play contains SMOKING, ADULT CONTENT and LANGUAGE!
Beatriz Montañez (Lucy) Trained in Prometeo, one of the premiere Spanish-Language theatre groups in South Florida, under the watchful eye of Teresa Maria Rojas. Her experience lies in the Theatre where she has received great acclaim such as The Bill Hindman Award, "Theatre's Top 10" by Miami Herald's Christine Dolen and "top break-through performance" by El Nuevo Herald. Her career includes productions such as Real Women have Curves at former Teatro Venevision Internacional, Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice and Macbeth here at New Theatre, as well as, Paradise and the World Premiere of Barrio Hollywood. During the last four years she lived in Los Angeles California where she collaborated with Tony Plana at East La Classic Theatre, trained in Ivana Chubbuck Studios and worked on-screen in NBC's Journeyman and I Love Miami - a Mexican-Spaniard production distributed by Warner Brothers in Spain. She will be opening Juan C. Sanchez's Marea Roja at Teatro Ocho this December.
Chris Vicchiollo (Clyde) has found a home for his creative side here at New Theatre. He has been a proud member of the New Theatre family for 4 years and feels blessed to be able to do what he loves, with people he loves. Previous performances at New Theatre include, Elliott: A Soldier's Fuge, For Better, 26 Miles, Hour of the Tiger, as well as a slew of Shakespeare and other classics. But his favorite performance has to be Jim, the Gentleman Caller, in Tennessee Williams' Glass Menagerie. Chris is thrilled to be adding this show to his repertoire and sharing the stage with these very talented actors. Of course, Chris wouldn't be anything without the love and support of those closest to him, and for that he is deeply grateful. Enjoy the show.
Aubrey Shavonn (Connie) ) is delighted to be back onstage at New Theatre and working with this wonderful cast and crew. Aubrey was previously seen at New Theatre in The Credeaux Canvas, Hamlet and the world premieres of In Development and Ladies And Not So Gentle Women. She's also performed with GableStage, Mad Cat, Broward Stage Door, Westport Country Playhouse, NYC Playwrights and fondly remembers Juggerknot, Dreamers Theatre, and The Modern Stage Company. She's worked on all sides of stage and screen and is an ensemble member of The Alliance Theatre Lab. Many thanks to Ricky, Steven, and Eileen and much love to her incredible husband Noah.
Clint Hooper (Jack) is proud to be a member of Actor's Equity, and excited to be back on the stage at New Theatre. Clint previously appeared in this past season's productions of Raised in Captivity as Kip and as both Lucentio and Vincentio in Taming of the Shrew. Clint also appeared as Jaques in the 2008-2009 season's production of As You Like It, but audiences may also remember him as Brian in A Nervous Smile, La Tremouille in Saint Joan, and as Frances in Lincolnesque. Clint also enjoys the technical side of theatre and has worked as Stage Manager for numerous productions at New Theatre including The Glass Menagerie, for which he also served as Set Designer. In his spare time, he teaches theatre at Southwest High.
