Press Release: Fundraising staged reading of new play “ECHO NEVADA” slated for May 16 at The Studio@620 in support of Artsfusion
For Immediate Release
St. Petersburg, FL (April 25, 2016) — An exciting new play based on mid-twentieth century frontier America by Anna Brennen will debut with a staged reading at The Studio@620 on May 16, 2016. Brennen is a prominent theatre figure in the Tampa Bay area, Founder and for 30 years the Producing Artistic Director of Stageworks Theatre and the Producing Artistic Director of ArtsFusion, which helped birth Stageworks. Brennen also founded Artsfusion, Inc. three years before her beloved Stageworks Theatre.
Brennen resumes her play-writing after a two decade hiatus. This play in its infancy received several fellowships: one from the State of Florida Cultural Affairs Division and one from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners. She has now completed a draft and is eager for the public’s response.
Join Brennen and the ECHO NEVADA cast for a riveting look at life on a ranch in northeastern Nevada set in 1948 during an early spring storm. The story follows a mismatched group of characters thrown into a rustic world of hardworking, hard living, extreme circumstances, as each try to make their way in life. How and why have they come together? How do they manage to coexist? What are the outcomes of their choices?
These questions will keep you on the edge of your seat until the curtain falls. The unique characters are guaranteed to intrigue you and will linger in your memory for some time to come. This is a world that few people have experienced and is now gone forever- a relic of a rich, adventurous, meaningful American frontier.
Tickets $35 general admission, $30 for Seniors and $10 for Professional Artists (performing and visual) with resume. The talk-back will be conducted by Jim Wicker.
The Studio@620 is a non profit arts venue located at 620 1st Ave. South, St. Petersburg FL 33701
