The Raw Impressions Music Theatre Marathon
Event #19: Guitar Based Music Theatre
Raw Impressions, Inc. presents its second annual Music Theatre Marathon, premiering 8 new ten-minute musicals each week for three weeks. For each event, 8 composers and 8 writers who have never met are paired up and given guidelines to create a new 10-minute music theatre piece. With the help of 2 directors, 2 musical directors, and 10 performers, the new works are premiered only 10 days after the artists' first meeting. Each week showcases a different group of participants. The 2006 Raw Impressions Music Theatre Marathon will premier 24 new 10-minute musicals in all, involving the talents of almost 100 artists!
Event #19 features: Paul Scott Goodman (Bright Lights, Big City), Sammy Buck (Like You Like It), Alison Loeb (recent Jonathan Larson Award winner), Michael Thomas Holmes (Oklahoma!, Producers Nat'l Tour), Mariama Whyte (The Lion King).
Raw Impressions' mission is to inspire artists to be prolific with excellence. A nonprofit organization, Raw Impressions creates opportunities for artists to take risks and work with new collaborators. Through a supported speedy development process free from commercial pressures, the new work is presented in front of an audience, allowing artists to just be artists.
