NEWS RELEASE ▪︎ “DEAD BOYS” at CELEBRATION THEATRE ▪︎ JULY 1 – 31

CELEBRATION THEATRE PRESENTS

DEAD BOYS

BY MATTHEW SCOTT MONTGOMERY

DIRECTED BY CHRISTOPHER JAMES RAYMOND

11 PERFORMANCES ONLY

JULY 1 – 31

Dead Boys 2018 logoCelebration Theatre has announced a limited engagement of Matthew Scott Montgomery’s award-winning drama Dead Boys, set to run July 1–31 on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights. Under the direction of Christopher James Raymond, the production will feature (in alphabetical order) playwright Montgomery and Andrew Puente.

The end of the world. Two millennials trapped in the basement of their old high school. The only gay kid in school. And the guy who used to beat him up. Provocative, hilarious, and heartbreaking, Dead Boys is about two modern American young men who have no choice but to face fate, race, sexuality – and each other.

A 2017 production of Dead Boys was a City of West Hollywood: One City One Pride Scholarship Award-winner. It was designated as Best of Fringe and won an Encore! Producers Award. The play was also a Diversity in American Theater Award finalist.

Matthew Scott Montgomery is an actor and emerging playwright. Acting credits include Sarah Ruhl’s Stage Kiss at The Geffen Playhouse, Del Shores’ Southern Baptist Sissies (as well as the adapted film version), and Shores’ Yellow at the Coast Playhouse, for which he won the LADCC for Best Actor. Television work includes Jane the Virgin, White Famous, and Disney Channel’s Sonny With a Chance, So Random!, Shake it Up!, and Austin & Ally. He is also one of the writers and stars of the web series Nasty Habits. His writing has been produced onstage at the Let Live! Theatre, Theatre Banshee, and The Working Stage Theater in sold-out runs of the annual Halloween show Spook Night (and its three sequels), as well as the dark comedies Fuck Valentine’s Day, Dead of July, and Dead of Winter.

Andrew Puente is a resident artist at the Ovation Award-Winning Chance Theater in Anaheim. His television credits include NCIS and the web series Nasty Habits. Theatre credits include Picasso at the Lapin Agile, In the Heights, Hamlet, Dogfight, and Avenue Q, among others.

Christopher James Raymond is the Associate Artistic Director of The Blank Theatre and oversees its new play development program, The Living Room Series. Other work at The Blank includes the critically-acclaimed world premiere of A Singular They by Aliza Goldstein. Also served as assistant director for The Blank’s west coast premiere of Speech and Debate and the LA premiere of Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them. He directed Doomsday Cabaret! A Rock Musical of Apocalyptic Proportions in the 2012 Hollywood Fringe Festival. He has worked at The Pearl, The Public, NADA, EST/LA, Moving Arts, and Theater of Note, among others.

Dead Boys is produced for Celebration Theatre by Jay Marcus and Tom DeTrinis. The stage manager is Tal Fox.

Dead Boys will play 11 performances only beginning Sunday, July 1, at 7pm. The running schedule is Sundays at 7pm and Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm through July 31 (no performances on Sunday 7/15, Monday 7/16, Tuesday 7/17, and Tuesday 7/24). Tickets are $25 and may be purchased online at www.CelebrationTheatre.com or by phone at (323) 957-1884. Celebration Theatre at The Lex is located at 6760 Lexington Avenue in Hollywood, 90038.
