SkyPilot Delivers Its Newest Runway Project
The award-winning SkyPilot Theatre Company continues its acclaimed and entertaining Runway staged reading series with The First to Know on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8pm at River Rock Lounge, 12825 Ventura Blvd., Studio City. Admission is free.
Written by local playwright/actress/comedienne Jessica Abrams (www.jessicaabrams.com), The First to Know is comprised of several short pregnancy-themed stories or a longer play about a choice. Directed by Steven Juhl, the cast includes Tina Walsch, Catherine Cox, Laura Walker, Mary Burkin, Albert Garnica, Ian Nemser, and Marla Cotovsky.
SkyPilot's Runway is a play reading series that helps to develop new plays in the early drafts stage. The readings are rehearsed, staged, on their feet, script in hand, in partnership with an LA based playwright. After the reading there is a focused feedback session with a moderator, the playwright, and the audience.
SkyPilot's upcoming production, "SkyPilot One Act Festival 2018", includes a dual evening of one-act plays based on the #MeToo Movement, Black Lives Matter and/or March For Our Lives.
