Original musical theatre development at Masquers


Masquers has a history of pioneering new plays by local playwrights. The latest chapter in that endeavor is a musical. “This Ain’t Me” is the name of it, and it was written by Vince Bryant, with assistance from his wife and daughter. The play is done, and he wants to see how it will look and sound on a real stage with real actors.

Masquers’ long time artistic director, Beverly Hasper, will be helping to make that happen. She, as well as the Bryants, will meet with volunteer actors and singers who are interested in the project.

“We don’t know yet if this will lead to a Masquers production,” says Hasper. “But there is a pretty good chance of that happening.” I have a long history of picking plays, and I think this one is a winner! Much of the music in the play is rap, as is Hamilton, which is currently a big hit on Broadway.”

Preliminary sessions will be at Masquers Theatre at 7 p.m., on Mondays and Wednesdays, June 20, 22, 27 and 29. Further sessions will be scheduled for July.

Anyone interested can call Beverly at 246-1095 or 760-3805.
