"Summer Preview" Staged Reading at the Library

The library has partnered with the Howmet Playhouse for a staged reading of excerpts from the summer season plays.
"Summer Preview" Staged Reading at the Library
Summer Preview staged reading set for June 13 at 6:30.

The Howmet Playhouse is presenting the second of three planned Staged Readings of plays at the library on Wednesday, June 13 at 6:30pm. Audience members at this presentation will listen to select scenes from the upcoming Summer Theatre Festival. The event is free of charge and will feature open forum discussion with the actors and director. Audience feedback gives theater staff insight into what the public is interested in seeing on stage.

 A staged reading is unlike a fully rehearsed and produced play in that the performers typically only rehearse a couple of times and read from their scripts while sitting on stools. The first staged reading in May featured The Man from Earth. "We were pleased with how successful the first event was and enjoyed responding to questions from the audience,” said Beth Beaman, Managing Director of the theater. “We are thrilled to continue this partnership with the White Lake Community Library to bring a different kind of theater into the community."

 The upcoming reading will feature scenes from Mom’s Gift, Old Love, Yankee Tavern, Every Brilliant Thing, and Summer Shorts. The White Lake Youth Theatre show is Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play; this show is being cast the week prior, so may not be featured in the reading.

 Even though the 101 year old theater is closed for renovations, the Summer Theatre Festival will be held at Whitehall High School from July 12-August 18.  Tickets are on sale at the Howmet Playhouse website or at Whitehall City Hall.
