Follow Randall Kenneth Jones down the ‘White Rabbit Red Rabbit’ hole


So imagine this. You’re an actor, director or just a local celeb. You step onto the Lab Theater stage in front of an eager, curious audience and Artistic Director Annette Trossbach hands you a sealed envelope containing a script. Tremulously, you tear it open and words tumble out, conveying you into an alternate reality – with no preparation, no rehearsal, no direction of any kind. Understand, this is not Whose Line Is It Anyway? The actor is not being given prompts for an improv skit. This is White Rabbit Red Rabbit and the envelope contains an actual script for a one-actor show that they must read, interpret and perform on the spot. And who better to embrace such a daunting challenge than Randall Kenneth Jones (who has long been oddly infatuated with rabbits for quite some time). He’ll be performing the one-man show at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 16.

Highly intelligent, deeply introspective and ridiculously well-connected, Jones made quite the splash in the gender-bending roles of femme fatale Cousin Miriam in Hush Up Sweet Charlotte and Baby Jane Hudson in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror, both produced by Laboratory Theater of Florida in the downtown Fort Myers River District.

Having spent most of his life as an actor and improviser, Jones is happiest before an audience. Besides Miriam and Baby Jane, his favorite stage roles include The Monster in Young Frankenstein, Professor Callahan in Legally Blonde, Roger DeBris in The Producers and Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

But acting is only one of the things that Jones does well. Go here to see what else.

Since this is one-time-only extravaganza, reserve your seats early if you want to follow Randall Kenneth Jones down the White Rabbit Red Rabbit hole. Tickets are $37 each or $15 for students. Seats for this Lab Theater fundraiser are limited, so don’t miss out.

And go here if you want to know who else will be accepting the White Rabbit Red Rabbit challenge.
