Loren and I also met at an Actors Training Center class in Wilmette. We did a scene together in our second class and bonded as actors do in such situations. Loren took on the tricky assignment of playing a character based on my father in New Year’s Eve at Grandma’s House, the Evanston 2nd Act Players first production, in 2013.
Here again, in Talking with My Dad, he tackles the same challenge, once again playing a character based on my father. And does so brilliantly. To see, buy your tickets today by clicking here. Loren’s official bio:
Loren Seidner portrayed Sal in the Evanston 2nd Act Players’ 2013 production of New Year’s Eve at Grandma’s House. In Talking with My Dad, he will be playing Dad, a character based on the same person as was Sal, presenting him with a fascinating acting challenge.
After graduating from Evanston Township High School, Loren earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa, and a juris doctor at IIT’s Chicago Kent-College of Law. He has been a trial lawyer for more than 20 years, primarily in the area of criminal law.
In high school, he went on to participate in two of the Evanston YMCA’s Brillianteen productions, before taking a leave of absence from the acting scene. Loren starting taking acting classes two years ago where he first met some of his fellow cast members and new friends, and is enjoying learning that acting is an extremely difficult craft.
