It’s official! There will be a staged reading for The Clowns, the rock opera written by Andy Mayo and myself, at the Playhouse on Park in West Hartford, CT.
The Playhouse has hired a director, a music director, and a stage manager. Auditions will take place in the next couple months, and if I would just wrap up the script, we’d be ready to go!
Shows will be on Saturday, November 5 at 8:00 PM and Sunday, November 6 at 2:00 PM. There will be no advanced ticketing. A suggested donation of $10 will be collected at the door.
It should also be noted that this is a rock opera written for an adult audience. The story centers on a group of twenty-something rock musicians, and so the language and situations presented are reflective of these conditions.
I only mention this because Andy and I are elementary school teachers, and I didn’t want anyone to assume that this was a G-rated show.
Come to the Show is the name of the first song in the show, and I hope you will all heed its call and show up for an exciting night for me and Andy!
