Platinum  Script Series

Starting in 2017, students, parents, and community members have been getting together to share in a script reading series that consists of musicals, plays, and a wild card choices. 

In its inaugural year, the Platinum Script Series included reads and discussions of Heathers: The Musical, the rock musical with music, lyrics, and a book by Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy and based on the 1988 cult film Heathers; and, The Flick, a play by Annie Baker that received the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and won the 2013 Obie Award for Playwriting.

In 2018-19, the Platinum Script Series will include reads of:

  • KEN LUDWIG's MIDSUMMER/JERSEY by Ken Ludwig (Starting Sept. 2018)
  • 26 PEBBLES by Eric Ulloa
  • A CHORUS LINE by James Kirkwood, Nicholas Dante, Marvin Hamlisch, and Edward Kleban

During script read meetings, participants take turns reading parts, examining scenes, discussing potential directing choices, and comparing writing approaches to other pieces.
