New Musical EMERALD Receives Concert Reading

Emerald, a new musical, and winner of ANMT’s 2011 Search for New Musicals, will receive a one night only concert reading February 6 at 7:30 pm as part of The Academy for New Musical Theatre’s reading series at The Lonny Chapman Theatre in North Hollywood.

Written by the British writing team of Chris Burgess (book and lyrics) and Denise Wright (music), Emerald tells the story of Grace Maguire who abandons her life in Manhattan and moves to the secluded seaside town of Ennismuck, West Ireland. Once there she clashes with a mining corporation buying up the local properties in order to extract the newly found gold. Grace campaigns to save Ennismuck, and starts a prickly relationship with truculent local artist, Mulcahy. By the time the musical ends, Grace manages to topple the mining company’s monopoly and thaw Mulcahy’s frozen heart. Calvin Remsberg directs and Ross Kalling is musical director.

Featured in the cast are Jake Anthony, Adrian Bewley, Noel Britton, Melisa Dunham, Courtney Freed, Christopher Warren Gilbert, Randy Guiaya, Scott Guy, Sean Hankinson, David Holmes, Shirley Hughes, Rebecca Johnson, Luke Kipp, Gia Mora, Veronica Frances Scheyving, Stewart Scott, Tedd Szeto, Michael Tatlock, Gabrielle Wagner, Peter Welkin, Erika Whalen, and Jennifer Winkler.

The Lonny Chapman Theatre is located at 10900 Burbank Blvd., North Hollywood, CA. $10 tickets can be reserved through the ANMT website at http://www.anmt.org/.
