Emerging Artists Theatre to Stage ONCE 'ROUND THE CIRCLE
The Emerging Artists Theatre will be presenting ONCE 'ROUND THE CIRCLE as part of their New Work Series at the TADA! Theatre on Sunday, March 13th at 7pm. This evening event will also include a performance of LAST EXIT IN NEW YORK by Luis Reyes Cardenas.
The three Mackenzie sisters are stuck in their house waiting for a winter storm to pass. After losing their mother years earlier, bossy eldest sister Emily tries to mind the home while keeping the peace. Twelve-year-old Charlotte insists on being the center of attention and drives her sisters to distraction. When the sun comes out, she convinces Emily and dour younger sister Dolly to go skating on the pond just behind their house. The freedom of playing on the ice brings about a change that will forever transform their relationship.
The cast will include Brigid Harrington (Jane Banks, Mary Poppins - Broadway), Shannon Harrington (Susan Waverly, Irving Berlin's White Christmas - Broadway National Tour, Dorothy Benson, Women Without Men - Off Broadway), and Cheryl Ann McCullagh (Jenny, Three Penny Opera - Kupferberg Arts Center).
Shanan Estreicher's work has been featured on TV, off-off Broadway, and in the documentary Rise Up and Sing (Official Selection of The Louisville International Festival of Film). He is a music teacher in the New York City public schools and a founding board member of the Chamber Orchestra of New York.
Emerging Artists New Work Series is a three-week developmental intensive that provides artists of different disciplines the opportunity to present a "work in progress" with audience feedback. Works developed in the series have gone on to successful runs at FringeNYC, NYMF, Edinburg Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, numerous nationwide and international productions, and Off-Broadway shows. The next New Work Series is scheduled for February 29th - March 20th and will take place at TADA! Theater. For more information, visit www.emergingartiststheatre.org.
