New Light Theater Project Announces Free Virtual Events This October

New Light Theater Project has announced an array of free virtual events this October that range from new work to radio dramas to panel discussions.

Kicking off the virtual season is a presentation of songs from a new musical in development, METROPOLIS an Afrofuturist Musical, written by AriDy Nox and Brandon Webster, directed by Zhailon Levingston. The workshop is in partnership with The School of Stage & Screen at Western Carolina University. It is the night before the Apocalypse and Fari, an Android-Unit turned space-time-continuum anarchist is at the center of the devastation. This new musical features a genre-bending score and time-twisting book. The team will present two new songs: the first through NY Theatre Barn on October 21st, and the second at the Darkroom Series on October 29th.

Then, tune in for a live conversation with the creatives of NLTP's hit, Hitler's Tasters ("Best Of 2019", The Stage) as the panelists re-contextualize the production in our current political climate. Nan Barnett (Executive Director, National New Play Network) moderates with artistic team Michelle Kholos Brooks (Playwright) and Sarah Norris (Director) along with producer Alyssa May Gold (Our Dear Dead Drug Lord) as they discuss the importance of the play and what it means in 2020.

Next up, NLTP will release a new 10-minute radio drama, Calendar Girl, by company member Owen Panettieri (A Burial Place, Meaningful Conversation) featuring Leila Ben-Abdallah and Viet Vo. Cary believes his new phone app can put him in the right place at the right time. But by giving up control, is he actually sealing his fate? Directed by Janet Bentley with Sound Design by Andy Evan Cohen, the radio drama is free to listen to and available on most streaming platforms beginning October 26th.
