Annie Golden, Nancy Opel and Mary Testa will headline The Directors Company's staged readings of the musical Cheer Wars, to be offered at 1pm and 4pm on July 22 and July 29 at The Peter Norton Space. As previously announced, Dan Knechtges will direct the performances.

With book & lyrics by Gordon Leary and music by Karlan Judd, the show, which is loosely based on Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part 1 and the true story of Wanda Holloway, focuses on the coach of a varsity cheerleading squad who will do anything to ensure that her daughter becomes the captain of the group. The company will also feature Ashley Arcement, Lilli Cooper, Kimiko Glenn, Mykal Kilgore, Mark Leydorf, Amy Linden, Dana Steingold, and Tracy Weiler.

Reservations for the reading are required and can be made by emailing tickets@directorscompany.org or by calling 212-246-5877.
