The K of Dby Laura Schellhardt. Dir TBD. 1st reh: 6/6 (Glens Falls, NY). Runs in Glens Falls 6/22-7/2.

“An urban legend”. One-woman show. Story of Charlotte McGraw, a 12-year-old girl struggling to come to terms with the death of her twin brother Jamie. Story also follows the growing "legend" of Charlotte McGraw, as narrated by a pack of teenagers who live near Charlotte on a man-made lake in southwest Ohio. As with all great legends, truth and fiction become inextricably linked. The truth is that Charlotte's brother was hit by a car and died in her arms. The truth is that, moments before he died, he kissed her gently on the lips. The legend is that everything Charlotte kissed from that moment forward also died. Play begins upon the discovery of her new “skill”, tracking the events that transpire when the man who killed her brother returns to town, and Charlotte's family attempts to use her skill to get rid of him.

Actress:

Plays 17 roles of various ages (age 12 to adult) and both genders. Roles include Charlotte, her Mother, her Father, a neighborhood Bully, and a pack of rag-tag neighborhood Kids.

An unexpected meeting in a blizzard-bound airport. Reed, a suit-and-tie with BlackBerry®, and Elena, a bohemian with rain-stick, were once idealistic college lovers. In the ‘70s they were full of peace, love and homemade soup. Twenty-five years later, she is still the idealistic hippie, but he’s gone corporate. Stuck for the night, they unearth past secrets and rekindle their passion, reaching for a second chance.

Reed McCallister:

Man, late 40s. “Wall Street Journal”-reading, mid-level executive, living in Boston. Let go of the hippie/free-love world-view of his youth in Madison, and crossed over to a more conservative mode of dress and outlook (it was the practical thing to do). Now, having crossed 40, he is a suburban dad wondering if he made the right choices, and if he can find any of the spark of his youth that has escaped him in middle age. Has a bit of a shrinking personality after years of subjecting himself to the corporate ladder, but while he appears uptight, underneath still lurks a free spirit.

Elena Carson:

Woman, late 40s. NPR-listening former hippie who now works in Austin as a telemarketer. Twenty-plus years after college in Wisconsin, she still hangs on to her hippie outlook and casual approach to life. Possesses a bold and outgoing personality that is reflected in her clothes and conversational style. While she appears confident, she has questions about the life path she chose and the ones she abandoned.


Hello Out There Music: Frank Terry. Book/Lyrics: Eric Price. Dir: Ben Edsley Klein. 1st reh: 6/27 (NYC). Runs in Glens Falls 7/22-7/30.

New musical. It’s the summer of 1995, a dozen years before the current financial crisis and the scandal of Bernie Madoff. Three Internet-savvy teens earn tens of thousands of dollars on the stock market using an ingenious method that may or may not be legal. When an immigrant taxi driver loses his life savings because of the teenagers’ scheme, he alerts the SEC. What was initially a high-flying summer of getting rich turns upside down as the SEC chases the teens across the Internet, through the New Jersey suburbs, and all the way to Wall Street.
