The Stages Festival for New Musicals!
I'll be playing DeeDee Dupree in "Ghost-s: The Musical" on Sat July 16, 4:30 PM and Sun July 17, 1:30 PM, at the STAGES Festival of New Musicals. Performances take place at The Academy for New Musical Theatre, 5628 Vineland Avenue in North Hollywood. Here's the synopsis:
"To save their small town from bankruptcy, a community theatre group sets out to produce a new musical based on the hit romantic thriller Ghost, but mistakenly acquires the rights to a dreadful musical adaptation of Ibsen's Ghosts, a dark Norwegian drama about incest, VD, and assisted suicide.
Ghost-s is a delightful musical-within-a-musical about the fight to save this eclectic Northern California community of artists, drop-outs and pot growers, led by an ex-Hollywood executive, haunted by a secret from her past."
The community happens to be fighting my character, and it's fun to play a villain! Hope to see you there.
