In response to the COVID-19 crisis and the mandatory temporary shuttering of its space, The Ringwald Theatre takes its gifts to the streaming world with a new summer program: Camp Ringwald presents Summer Shorts. Throughout the summer, a series of short films will be created with access available online. The Summer Shorts program will allow the theatre to maintain a revenue stream while also keeping engaged with their audience.
First up: The Golden Girls: A Quaran-Teeny Parody. Have you wondered what Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia are up to during quarantine? Well, wonder no more because we’ve got the lockdown lowdown! This all-new stay-at-home special, written by Vince Kelley and Matthew Arrington, reunites the main cast of the holiday hit A Very Golden Girls Christmas. Andy Fillmore, Christopher Kamm, Richard Payton, and Brandy Joe Plambeck reprise their Golden roles with a special appearance by director Dyan Bailey as Stan.
The Girls discover that February 2020 was a bad time to take separate vacations. Quarantined in locations around the country, they catch up over a Zoom call and share their caustic (and often hilarious) takes on the state of the pandemic. Can cheesecake be far behind?
The Golden Girls: A Quaran-Teeny Parody will be available for purchase June 8-July 3, 2020.
Video link will be emailed and you will have a 5 day window to watch. If you do not receive the email or have any issues viewing the file, please let us know at theRingwald@gmail.com.
