The sun is beaming on the first day of 2011, and Miguelina Cedeno-Outler is glowing, too. Why? She’s preparing for her second play—and she’s expecting.
Cedeno-Outler’s road to becoming a playwright began in 2006. She wanted to write a book at that time. She said somebody suggested she turn the book into a screenplay. Then the idea of the screenplay blossomed into a theater play.
With her company Wealth Prosper and Growth Productions, Cedeno-Outler will hold her second play in Harrisburg today. “I expect a great crowd,” she told vigoronline.com. The Girlfriends tells a story about the younger generation and traditional values. The doors open at 6 p.m. at The Forum. Showtime begins at 7 p.m. Tickets can be bought at the door for $25.
But before the playwright would hold any plays, she became a model. She inherited her good looks from her Spanish father and African-American mother. Modeling led to her role in a small independent film. The Harrisburg native pursued her acting career by moving to California in 2008.“Acting and modeling coincide,” Cedeno-Outler said. “I knew then that’s what my calling was,” she said about acting.
She returned to Harrisburg, and on May 31, 2010, she held her first play. The play, All in the Eyes of the Beholder, was free of cost. Cedeno-Outler created a fan base with this play, having about 1,000 people in attendance.
As a believer in God, she wants to continue to emit her positive light. “I want to show people that if I can do it, you can do it,” Cedeno-Outler explained. “I want to be that voice.”
