Coraline to open at SF Playhouse in November

Coraline

SF Playhouse up in the Bay area is busy readying the west coast premiere of new musical Coraline by Stephin Merritt (of The Magntic Fields) and David Greenspan (She Stoops To Conquer, Dead Mother). The production will begin previews on November 16 and open on the 20th.

Poor bored Coraline. She's left to rattle 'round her perpetually distracted, workaholic parents' house all by her lonesome. But late one night, her dreams of a better reality come true as she opens a big, carved, wooden door at the far end of the drawing room and passes into a perfect replica of her own world. When she's greeted there by a vastly loving Other Mother and a kindly Other Father, she's thrilled! But as the rats start to creep from the floorboards, and the way home becomes increasingly unclear, Coraline begins to suspect that, perhaps, all is not as perfect as it seems.

Playhouse artistic director, Bill English, directs a cast that introduces 12-year old Maya Donato in the title role and features Susi Damilano, Jackson Davis, Maureen McVerry, Stacy Ross, Brian Degan Scott and Brian Yates Sharber.

You can also find out what it takes to go from the page to the stage on November 28th as English and special guests present Coraline: The Making of a New Musical at the SF Library Main Branch (Koret Auditorium), plus, you'll also have a chance to win tickets to see the show.
