Miss Moore’s Senior Drama Class Presents Their Annual “Tribute to American Poetry” Pre-Thanksgiving Recital, 1963
Happy to report that my play adapted from Edna St. Vincent Millay's poetry collection Second April and the November 22 1963 issue of LIFE magazine will be a part of City Lit Theatre's Art of Adaptation Festival! The cast, seen above, features Tori Ayres Oman, Ellen Chambers, Zack Shornick and Erin O'Shea, and we're in rehearsals now, with myself directing and choreographing the early-1960s dance sensation "The Monkey" so we're lucky the actors are much better dancers than I am! Come see a story about young love and dreams deferred in a 1963 Ohio high school, commemorating both one of America's greatest poets and the fiftieth anniversary of a national tragedy: only at City Lit Theatre, July 19th and 21st! We'll keep you posted...
