The Reading Theater Project has announce the company’s next production, mixed MESSages, highlighting a collage of several plays and solo performances.
The production’s themes were developed by the creative artists associated with the Reading Theater Project. After several brainstorming sessions, local playwrights submitted scripts, all related to the idea of mess or mixed messages. The production features local performers and playwrights.
“How do you know who to trust, what to believe, where the truth lies? Mixed MESSages explores these questions through realistic scenes, absurd musical numbers, and everything in between,” said Vicki Haller Graff, Artistic Director.
“As the world is re-awakening, many of us are asking ourselves these questions. Asking through theater helps us process together.”
Artists involved on stage and off include Craig Dodge, Brad Gale, Kath Godwin, Erick Goldsmith, Joel Richard Gori, Vicki Haller Graff, Emily Hannon, Chris Heslop, David A. Nice, Nadia Pochan, Adam Richter, Arielle Ridley, Sean Sassaman, Jessica C. Warchal-King, Amy Young.
The production is funded by the Berks County Community Foundation.
Performances are scheduled for Thursday, November 18, through Saturday, November 20, at 8pm nightly, and Sunday, November 21, at 2pm, at the WCR Center for the Arts, 140 N. 5th Street in Reading, Pa.
