Selected Shorts: Jane Kaczmarek
Acting Legends Perform in Selected Shorts
Join us on Saturday, February 29 at 3pm and 7:30pm to experience the hit public radio series and podcast Selected Shorts live in our intimate, indoor Carriage House Theatre.
This evening of funny, moving, and unforgettable readings hosted by actress Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) is part of the popular weekly radio show whose premise is simple: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific stage and screen actors. The show is broadcast on over 130 stations to about 300,000 listeners, and the performances at Montalvo will be recorded for possible airing on upcoming episodes. 
At Montalvo, the theme of the stories is Unexpected Encounters. The characters in these stories may be lonely, but they've got blind dates with destiny ahead of them…and it's anyone's guess what could happen next.
Kaczmarek will be joined by three or more additional well-known actors and actresses, so stay tuned for further updates to the cast! 
Never heard the show and want to get a taste of what it will be like? Click the button below to listen before you buy! Hint: Episodes 50 and 52 both feature Jane Kaczmarek. 😉
