Your chance to be “Next to Normal”

The Sterling Playmakers Play Reading Series continues in March with a newer musical, the celebrated and cerebral “Next to Normal.”

The reading is scheduled for Saturday, March 25 at 7 p.m. Scripts to read-along will be available.

This rock opera tells the story of a mother struggling with bipolar disorder and examines the struggles of her and her family. After openings Off-Broadway and at the Arena Stage in DC, “Next to Normal” opened on Broadway in 2009. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards, the show won Best Original Score, Best Orchestration and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical. It was also only the eight musical to with the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

The New York Times called it, “a brave, breathtaking musical. It is something more than a feel-good musical: it is a feel-everything musical.”

Megan Stockman will be hosting the reading at her home in Broadlands. If interested, contact her at meganstockman1@verizon.net for the address and directions. Bring your own soda and snacks. Please note that the play does contain adult language with some mature themes and may not be suitable for some younger Playmakers. Also note that this is a small-cast show with some roles for the read-through already spoken for.

Be on the lookout for more play readings in 2017. If you’d be interested in hosting a play reading, contact John Geddie at jlgeddiejd@aol.com or Colin Taylor at colin@colintaylor.net for assistance in scheduling and getting the word out.

Play Reading Alert!

The Sterling Playmakers Play Reading Series is underway and the first selection is the classic musical, “Annie Get Your Gun.”

The reading is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. Scripts to read-along will be available.

Originally opening on Broadway in 1946, the “Annie Get Your Gun” is a fictionalized version of the life of female sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her time with Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show. Notable (and humworthy) songs from the show include “You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” and “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better) – all by Irving Berlin.

The title role has been played by such luminaries as Ethel Merman, Barbara Eden, Debbie Reynolds and Bernadette Peters. “Annie Get Your Gun” has been a regular contender during season selection, so the Playmakers is particularly curious about how the reading goes.

Liz Mykietyn will be hosting the reading at her home in Ashburn. If interested, contact her at thezoo232@verizon.net for the address and directions. Bring your own soda and snacks. Please note that that this is a pet-friendly home, so allergy sufferers may want to be prepared beforehand.

Be on the lookout for more play readings in 2017. If you’d be interested in hosting a play reading, contact John Geddie at jlgeddiejd@aol.com or Colin Taylor at colin@colintaylor.net for assistance in scheduling and getting the word out.
