Weber State University Department of Performing Arts presents a talk about play writing by Jim Christian, November 8 at 2pm in the Hetzel-Hoellein Room (Special Collections), Stewart Library, WSU campus. The public is invited to attend this event.
Christian has written two successful musical theatre plays that have been well-received: “Pirate!” (originally known as “Pirated Penzance;” and “Sleepy Hollow.” “Pirated” has been performed around the country since its premiere more than a decade ago. “Sleepy Hollow” received an award for play writing from the Kennedy Center-American College Theatre Festival last spring and was selected for workshopping at the National Music Theater Conference this summer.
The National Music Theater Conference was established in 1978 through the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. Since then, more than one hundred works have been developed. Many of the creators of those works have since won prestigious awards, and their works and subsequent works have received acclaimed recognition in opera houses, Broadway, off-Broadway, New York and regional theaters worldwide. It would be no surprise for local audiences to hear of the continuing success of “Sleepy Hollow.”
