Ordinary Days ~ Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Ord Days Letter Sized Poster-page-001Sierra Stages and Miners Foundry will present Ordinary Days on Wednesday, April 1, 2015.  Ordinary Days is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.  With music and lyrics by Adam Gwon, the show is directed by Sandra Rockman, with Ken Getz as musical director and features Jay Barker, Nancy Haffey, Jonathan Hansard, and Kim Wellman.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are a $10 suggested donation, and are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or at the door.

From one of musical theatre’s most excited new composers comes this refreshingly honest, funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps.  When Deb loses her most precious possession, the notes to her graduate thesis, she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love, and cabs.

The Miners Foundry and Sierra Stages will present The Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at the Miners Foundry.   The Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds will be the fourth installment of Theater By The Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation.  Refreshments will be available for purchase along with a no host bar.

Winner of an Obie Award, a New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the coveted Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Paul Zindel’s masterpiece tells the story of single mother Beatrice Hunsdorfer and her teenage daughters.  Abandoned by her husband and saddled with two children, Beatrice hates the world.  She thinks she just needs the right opportunity, and everything will get better.  Volatile older sister Ruth seems sadly fated to repeat her mother’s mistakes in her own life.  Shy Tillie is the joke of her school and her family, until a teacher opens her eyes to the wonders of science.  When Tillie’s project on the effect of gamma rays on man-in-the-moon marigold seeds is chosen for the school science fair, the dysfunctional family dynamic comes to a head.  Directed by Diane Fetterly.

Sleuth ~ Theater By the Book ~ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 ~ 7:00 p.m. Doors / 7:30 p.m. Curtain ~ $10.00 Suggested Donation

The Miners Foundry and Sierra Stages will present Sleuth on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at the Miners Foundry.  Sleuth will be the second installment of Theater By The Book, a series of informal play readings for the community co-presented by Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation.  Refreshments will be available for purchase along with a no host bar.

Sleuth has all the ingredients of a top-class thriller – a plot whose twists and turns are breathtakingly audacious & fiendishly cunning; suspense & excitement galore; and a brilliant parody of the Agatha Christie country-house thriller.

When an aging mystery writer lures his wife’s lover to his mansion, the younger man becomes unwittingly drawn into a tangled web of intrigue & gamesmanship, where nothing is quite as it seems.
