(Musical Staged Reading) The holidays can be a difficult time. Some choose to grumpily ignore the season, others choose to try and spread cheer - while selling full-spectrum holiday light bulbs. Inspired in part by Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl, Striking 12 shares what happens when these worlds collide and modern day New York City is intertwined with 19th century Denmark. Striking 12 has an eclectic, vibrant pop/rock/jazz score with book, music and lyrics by Brendan Milburn, Rachel Sheinkin and Valerie Vigoda.
Directed by Ken Stevens and R. MacKenzie Lewis
This jazzy musical staged reading performs in the Sponberg Theatre on November 9 & 10 at 7pm and November 11 at 2pm.
Striking 12 is recommended for ages 13+.
Musical Staged Reading, all tickets $7.
