Wacky Comedy will be read at Lab Theater
FORT MYERS 11/11/13: The Laboratory Theater of Florida will begin its series of staged readings this season with Tom Riti’s new play, Paranormal Producer. The performance will be on Monday, November 25th at 7pm.
This comedy features Rachel, who has left a secure job to follow her dream and become an actor. But, at age 53, her dream gets bleary when she discovers that producers want 20-year old bombshells - not 53-year old bomb fragments. So she fabricates ghosts, ghost stories, and a larger than life psychic alter ego to become TV's next Reality Superstar. But, what Rachel didn't plan on was a life changing encounter with a real ghost!
Directed by Anne Dodd, the staged reading will feature actors Sandy Porter, Marcus Colon, Bonnie Grossmann, Patrick Day, Mike Dinko, Taylor Adair Nave, Dave Kensler and Jonathan Best.
Staged readings are interesting because audiences enjoy hearing a new work for the first time. They can also observe some of the process of writing and rewriting a play, can meet the playwright, and can share feedback which may help the playwright with final edits of his script. Most of Lab Theater’s staged readings showcase the regional talent of southwest Florida playwrights.
Paranormal Producer premiers at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 25th. Tickets are just $5 and are available for purchase at the door only. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
