Nothing Special Announces THE SUBJECT Staged Reading in Protest of the Brock Turner Sentencing
by A.A. Cristi - Sep 9, 2016

Nothing Special is participating in a very special international movement protesting the Brock Turner verdict and other lenient rape sentences. Conceived by playwright Carolyn Kras, The Subject Project is coordinating staged readings of Kras' play The Subject, concerning the sexual assault of Princess Sophia, daughter of King George III, and the royal family's attempts to silence her from speaking out about her abuse. The aim of The Subject Project is to peacefully protest lenient rape sentences like that of Brock Turner's, raise awareness and dialogue about sexual assault, and take action to reduce violence.

Lifeline KidSeries to Present LESTER'S DREADFUL SWEATERS, 3/20
by Tyler Peterson - Mar 8, 2016

Lifeline Theatre's KidSeries presents Lester's Dreadful Sweaters, a world premiere musical adaptation with script by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Aly Renee Amidei; lyrics by Aly Renee Amidei, Julie Tallarida and Scott Tallarida; music by Scott Tallarida; and directed by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Heather Currie, based on the book by K.G. Campbell. One terrible morning, Cousin Clara presents young Lester with the gift of a hand-knit sweater... and it is DREADFUL: shriveled yet saggy and smothered with pom-poms. Lester (who likes things just so) is mortified to wear it, but his parents insist and the kids at school tease him relentlessly. When he ruins the sweater 'by accident,' Clara just makes others, each more ghastly than the last. To restore his neatly ordered life and save face on the playground, Lester must find a way to stop the endless parade of horrifying sweaters once and for all. Enter a fashion nightmare and embrace your inner clown in this world premiere musical based on the charming 2012 book by K.G. Campbell. This production is recommended for children ages five and up (children under two not permitted), and runs approximately one hour with no intermission.
