(Los Angeles, CA - January 23, 2015) -- The stage is set for "R&B Divas LA" star and former City High singer Claudette Ortiz to make her acting debut in the Jack Lightsy Production "Captured By The Game" opening at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre Friday, Feb. 13 and running through Sunday, Feb. 15.
In the comedy stage play, Ortiz plays Sister Shelia who is described as a street wise woman of God that believes there is a little good in everyone. R&B crooner Jesse Campbell, most recently of NBC's hit series "The Voice," is the player--Oliver--who thinks he is running top notch game on Sister Shelia. The high-jinx that ensue are a classic character study in the challenges of dating in modern society but with a comedic twist.
"Captured By The Game" continues at string of Valentines Weekend productions presented by Writer and Composer Jack Lightsy. With "Captured" Lightsy turns his lens on the games both men and women play when attempting to only show the positive or most attractive elements of their personality in order to find a mate. At the same time, the play taps into that old saying about "good girls and bad guys" while raising the timeless questions about a player's ability to truly give up the game.
Scheduled to run February 13 - 15, 2015 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre tickets for "Captured By The Game" may be purchased at the Ebell Box Office, World Life Book Stores, Simply Wholesome Restaurant and TicketMaster.com. Groups sales and individual tickets may also be purchased at JackLightsyProductions.com or call 310.963.4704 for group sales inquires only.
