Southern at Fairfield, Shreveport, now Actor's Cafe and busy with music, dance and monologues

At the Actor's Cafe myspace page it says, "We are a restaurant and bar located at 1401 Fairfield Ave, the former location of Bear's. Our goal is to provide a fun atmosphere where musicians, actors, artists, and the public can showcase their talents while enjoying tasty food and a full bar.

Thursday Actor's Showcase: try to perform a monologue - or dialogue - for five minutes without getting the gong. At least one winner every night. Free beverages for contestants. Fun atmosphere.

Over a period of 8 contests we will see who's the best. Movie casting directors will choose the winners, who will win an agency contract and photo shoot. Starts at 8 pm. Sign up early."

And, says event producer Susan Garner -

Monday. Dan Garner of the Tipitina's music co-op brings his popular Singer/Songwriter Jam to the Café. This had quite a following at the now defunct Java Junction.

Tuesday is when signed Acclaim actors gather to do scenes for upcoming movie auditions in the back room.

Wednesday musicians gather for the Music Jam. It was smokin' last night and lasted 'till midnight. All good musicians welcome.

Fri and Sat last week Alana Dyson sang "Black coffee"and Shreveport Bellydancers shimmied.

This should be a great new all age venue. We stopped by on Friday evening and KSCL should be doing a show on Mar 14th. More info to come soon! We posted essentially the same information on our blog.

Alana Dyson and Kern Courtney are fantastic; Alana has a way with old jazz standards. I'm glad they have a place to play that appreciates their talents.
