April 18, 2011 - Shorter University theatre students will be presenting three staged readings of new or unproduced plays in the Callaway Theatre April 19-21 at 7:30 p.m. This event is open to the public at no charge. Donations will be encouraged and accepted and all proceeds will go to Red Cross Disaster Relief.
Each staged reading from the New Play Reading Series will be student directed and will consist of the cast sitting or standing while reading from scripts. This allows for students and audience members to be exposed to new works that the theatre department will not have the opportunity to produce on a full scale.
The three plays to be presented this year are Promises by Joel Williams on April 19, Hot Gershwin on a Cole Night featuring the music of George and Ira Gershwin and Cole Porter with a script by Peter Sham and Randall Kramer on the April 20, and Riptide by Cecilia Copeland on the April 21. Each reading will be followed by a talkback where the audience, actors, and directors can share their impressions of the play.
