$5 a Smile
Created and Performed by Ce-Lee
Traveller, Nomad, Drifter, Hitchhiker, Transient, Hobo, Bum: a few of the many names April has been called. Sometimes with endearment, other times with disgust. April is brash and reckless, insisting that life is better on the streets. When she receives an unexpected message, she is faced with an ultimatum.
$5 a Smile is a solo performance inspired by real stories. It explores the themes of homelessness and perfectionism through storytelling, satire and music.
The first ever show to be produced by “Ce-Lee Productions” will be during this year’s Winnipeg Fringe Festival (July 15-26, 2020)! Check back for more info!
COVID- 19 Update: So far, The Winnipeg Fringe is still planning to run the festival as planned. There may need to be adjustments to the festival as information and updates about COVID-19 continue. Since $5 a Smile will be a local production, it will still move ahead unless the festival needs to be cancelled. If the festival is cancelled, $5 a Smile will be produced at a future date or will be adapted into an Indie Film.
Breaking into Film
Acting and Directing in the Theatre world has been my primary focus so far in my career but recently I have felt a pull toward the Film Industry. Winnipeg has such a vibrant film community with an increasing number of big budget movies being filmed here. I had to see what the fuss was all about. I am very happy to say that I recently connected with some local filmmakers. We already have one short film under our belt and have plans for three more projects all before the end of June.
COVID-19 Update: All planned films have been postponed. More information about the future films will be posted as information is available.
