About this event:
Amelia Buchanan, a senior at Garfield High School, has a dream of the best Scholar League team in the history of Scholar League. With the help of her friends and one kinda kooky substitute teacher, Amelia auditions and forms an unstoppable team. As the pressure increases, Amelia must decided if her can-do attitude is enough to keep her senior year from completely falling apart. She ends up cheating on her history test, admitting to the deed in the final round of competition. Her friends forgive her, and Amelia learns that perfection is a standard that is probably impossible to live by.
Smarty Pants is written by Bridget Grace Sheaff and Theodore Bartemes . Directed by Sarah Frances Williams . Music Direction by Matthew Brown
This reading is a part of Monumental’s New Work Series. MNW is a series of readings that allows playwrights, directors, and performers the opportunity to develop a script by providing rehearsal time, space and resources – all culminating in workshops or readings open to the public. All projects in the Series take place with little or no scenic, costume or staging elements, and actors may have scripts in hand. It’s a rare chance for theatre-lovers to be a part of a new work in its earliest stages of development.
Pay What You Can at the door.
