READER’S THEATRE

Semi-Staged Readings
Old Library Theatre sponsors semi-staged readings of original, lesser-known and lesser-produced works Friends believe may be of interest to our patrons. Anyone interested may submit an idea for a Reader’s Theatre production by emailing the following information to info@oldlibrarytheatre.net: Play Title & Author, Rights’ Holder (if applicable), Casting Requirements. Submissions are reviewed by the Executive Board of OLT as they are received. Typically, these readings are cast by the assigned directors, rather than through open auditions.

Coming in 2017:

THIS – A New Musical

Directed by Eric Holgerson. Produced by Sheryl Heffernan.

Book by Eric Holgerson. Music and Lyrics by Jennifer Sisco.

Performances Saturday, November 4 at 7:00pm and Sunday, November 5 at 2:00pm.

Ten years ago, it looked as if their show was destined for Broadway. Then, the writer died and the project died along with him. Now, the performers receive an anonymous script in the mail calling them back to the stage. Who sent it? Why now? Is “this” their moment?
