Live Girls! Theater--where I was born as a playwright--is producing a reading of my kids play, Marvelous, at the Pocket Theatre on Easter Sunday (3/27) at 2:00 PM as part of their Spring Cupcake Reading series.
The fabulous Carol Roscoe directs, and the cast includes John Stutzman, Meghan Dolby, Carol Louise Thompson, Michael Feldman, the one and only Rebecca M Davis, and Jose Amador as Sal, the educated pig. It's free! You should come!
Set in a Depression-era circus in the deep south, "Marvelous" is the story of a young girl named Gertie's quest to rescue her best friend Kai from the clutches of the evil Snow Queen. She is helped along the way by a host of talking animals, a frightening snake charmer, a robber kid, and the world's tiniest ringmaster, Little Angeletti. In the end, she learns that even the most "unmagical" among us can make a difference in the world.
"Marvelous" is an original adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," commissioned by The Drama School at Seattle Children's Theatre in 2014.
(P.S. The Cupcake Spring Readings also include plays by Courtney Meaker,Zoey Cane Belyea, Elizabeth Heffron, teen playwrights from the YPP, and other fantastic ladies. Check out the whole series!)
