Book by Arthur Laurents. Music by Jule Styne. Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Directed by Scott Hart. Produced by Julie Galorenzo. Musical Direction by Anthony Bevilacqua. Choreography by Amy Shera.
Based on the memoirs of the world-renowned burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee, this musical explores the relationships between the ultimate stage mother and the daughters she spends a lifetime steering toward stardom. Who ultimately wins when love and ambition collide?
Old Library Theatre invites submissions for its 3rd Annual Original One Act Play Festival, “4×4.” Four original one act plays will be produced and performed on OLT’s stage in May 2014. Submission criteria is as follows: All plays must be complete, one act works, running 15-30 minutes, with six or fewer characters. No musicals, please. Plays will be mounted with no budget, though they will be fully staged with minimal, necessary sound and lighting.
Auditions will be held in April. Performances May 23-25, 2014.
Please e-mail submissions or questions to email@example.com by March 17. Playwrights who did not have their plays produced in previous years’ festivals will receive priority in selection.
All performances take place at George Frey Center for Performing Arts at 10-10 20th Street in Fair Lawn, NJ. Performance times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm.
