A new rock musical, Manson's Girls, based on the true story of Charles Manson killings will be presented as a staged concert reading at the NoHo Arts Center July 30-31 and August 6-7. The musical traces the storylines of a half-dozen of the young women who were involved with the Sharon Tate and LaBianca murders in August, 1969. In it, Linda Kasabian joins the Manson Family and transforms from a wide-eyed young runaway from New Hampshire to one of Manson's Girls, capable of committing murder 35 days later.

Manson's Girls was developed by ANMT in partnership with the Department of Drama at University of California Irvine and will feature a cast of ten music directed by Dr. Gary Busby and directed by Little Fish Theatre's Stephanie Coltrin. Christopher Maikish will play Manson. Click Here for tickets, which are $10. Performances take place at The NoHo Arts Center, 11136 Magnolia, North Hollywood, CA 91601.
