The Playbill

Lady on Fire by Frank Farmer – The coast-to-coast odyssey of Gretchen M. Gold, a talk radio host with the answer to everyone’s problems … except, of course, her own.  As she tries to keep her soon-to-be-ex psychiatrist husband from leaving her poorer, she takes a series of steps toward peace of mind and enlightenment. Directed by R.J. Romero.

The Reading of the Will by Donna Bader – As three siblings meet a neophyte lawyer for the reading of Mom’s will, they expect some drama, but not their comeuppance. Directed by Steve Josephson (Gallimaufry Performing Arts, OHSA).

Audition by John Lane – Kiley has an M.F.A. in Drama from Carnegie-Mellon and is passionate about doing good work in film and theatre. So would a role in a two-bit horror movie be acceptable? After all, this is Hollywood … TV and film roles don’t come along every day.  Directed by Geoffrey Gread (New Voices Playwrights Theatre).

‘Til Death Do Us by Gene Fiskin – A just-married middle-aged couple find how little they know about each other as their Las Vegas honeymoon begins. Directed by Karen Wray (Panndora Productions).

And where do you park? The garage at 3rd and Birch is free on the weekends – one block northwest of the theatre. The garage at 3rd and Broadway, we hear, is $2.

Join us in May for readings of new stuff at STAGEStheatre in Fullerton, and in July for readings of new works at NTAC.

And this thing will get better-looking. We promise.
