Stephen Feigenbaum, an alum of Winchester Cooperative Theater for Children and of Winchester High School ('07) and the Octets, is organizing a reading of a new musical entitled Caius Martius. The musical was co-written with Matthew George whom he met when he was at Yale and is being directed by Charlie Polinger, currently a student there.
The cast consists of Winchester Coop Theater alums who are in high school and college, as well as Tom Casserly (WHS '07) and Brennan Caldwell, a young actor living in New York. The show is based loosely on the Shakespeare play Coriolanus.
The show is in 2 acts and runs a bit over 2 hours. The reading will take the form of an unstaged production, with full music, singing and scene work, performed from music stands. This is a common way in which people writing new musicals put them up for an audience to see how they work and decide how to revise them. The show will likely undergo revision based on this reading, and further productions will be mounted as the show is developed.
We would be honored by your presence at this exiciting event.
