African American news from Pasadena - Shelli Boone - One Woman Show "Out West"Los Angeles-based actress Shelli Boone (www.shelliboone.com) has been tapped to take her self-written and produced one-woman show "Out West: Women of the Plains" on the road. Boone will perform the critically acclaimed play in three states – California, Virginia and Florida. "Out West" depicts seven scenes featuring women of color striving to survive during the migration West throughout the late 1800's and early 1900's. Through the use of monologues and music, the audience experiences their struggles with health, religion, love, family, finance and ambition, amidst a turbulent and viciously racist national climate.

Boone is first appearing in The Actors Repertory's 3rd Annual Solo Festival at the Missing Piece Theatre in Burbank, California on Saturday, January 30th at 8pm. The festival features 18 one-person shows, all judged by the audience.

On February 6th, she will host a Talk Back Seminar at the Center with youth to discuss the show, its historical impact and give guidance on establishing a career in entertainment. "As a Hampton Roads native, this is especially exciting for me," says Boone. "To have the opportunity to perform in a place where I grew up, where so many people support me and to also be able to give back and encourage others is very fulfilling."
