USC Presents EMOJILAND Concert Reading This Friday Night


The USC School of Dramatic Arts will present a live concert reading of Emojiland this Friday evening at 7:30pm at Cammilleri Hall at USC in Los Angeles, CA. Emojiland marks the inaugural presentation in the school's LiveRead@SDA, an initiative headed by the school's dean, David Bridel, and VP Boyle. The new program was created to cultivate and provide critical support for the creation of innovative and contemporary new musicals for the American theatre.

LiveRead@SDA invites professional artists to weeklong workshop residencies on the USC campus, where they can take bold steps to refining their work with access to a diverse student population. "LiveRead@SDA epitomizes the School's commitment to new theatre, new opportunities for our students, and new networks for the benefit of all," said Bridel. "I'm very excited to launch this groundbreaking program and attract the brightest and the best theatrical creators to work with us on their commercial projects."

With book, music and lyrics by husband-and-wife team Keith Harrison and Laura Harrison, Emojiland tells the story of a vibrant emoji civilization living inside of a smartphone. The production will be directed by Blake Silver, and features a cast of nine USC students.
Drawing from current pop, hip-hop, r&b, rock, EDM and more, Emojiland features an innovative musical score that is as deliciously eclectic as it is brilliantly cohesive.
