Atlantic Acting School to Stage John Early & Nicole Spiezio's THE WITCHELOR, 3/20-22
The Atlantic Acting School and Atlantic Alumni Program present The Witchelor, an original comedy written by John Early and Nicole Spiezio. Performances take place Thursday, March 20, 8:00 PM, Friday, March 21, 8:00 PM, and Saturday, March 22, 8:00 PM & 11:00 PM at Atlantic Stage 2, 330 W. 16th Street, New York, NY. In this live episode of The Bachelor, our handsome hero falls for a lovely, bright-eyed contestant who also happens to be a witch. Can their love survive the other contestants' jealous, white-wine-soaked rage? Will you accept this eye of newt?

They first premiered The Witchelor as part of Ars Nova's ANT Fest in 2012 to a sold out crowd. They are thrilled to be reviving the show at Atlantic Stage 2 for four more performances.
