Rocket Science Receives Staged Reading

The Los Angeles Festival of New American Musicals and ASCAP will host a free staged reading of the 2010 Richard Rodgers Award winning musical Rocket Science at Barnsdall Gallery Theater on August 3 and 4.

The musical features book by Patricia Cotter, music by Stephen Weiner, lyrics by Jason Rhyne, and orchestrations by Remy Kurs, and is produced by Marcia Seligson and Michael Kerker. Richard Israel directs and musical direction is by Darryl Archibald.

Rocket Science is the story of 16-year-old Hal Hefner, a lifelong stutterer who is bright, funny and stuck behind a wall of words he can't quite get out of his mouth. When the queen of the high school debate team plucks him from obscurity, Hal begins a life-altering journey to tackle his biggest challenge: finding his true voice.

Performances will take place Wednesday, August 3 and Thursday, August 4 at 8:00 pm. Admission is free but an RSVP is required by emailing info@lafestival.org or calling 310-827-2850.

Barnsdall Gallery Theater is located at 4800 Hollywood Blvd. (within Barnsdall Art Park), Los Angeles, CA 90027.
