By Larry Murray
WAM Theatre is pleased to announce details for their reading of The Tall Girls by Meg Miroshnik, the next event in the 2015 Fresh Takes Play Reading Series. The first Fresh Takes reading of 2015 sold out last month, as did all five of the readings in 2014 inaugural season, proving Berkshire audiences embrace contemporary plays written by women and focusing on the unique stories of women and girls.
WAM Theatre will present the reading on Sunday (May 17) at 3pm at No. Six Depot Roastery and Café in West Stockbridge.
The cast of The Tall Girls features Erin Eva Butcher (Imaginary Beasts’s Kerplop! The Frog Prince), Annie Considine (Shakespeare & Company’s Private Lives), Sarah Jensen (CT Rep Theatre’s Lysistrata), Maizy Broderick Scarpa (Pittsfield Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Catherine Seeley (Oldcastle Theatre’s My Fair Lady) and Ryan Winkles (Shakespeare & Company’s It’s a Wonderful Life). Kelly Galvin, curator of the 2014 Fresh Takes Series, and well known to Berkshire area audiences for her work with Shakespeare & Company as an actress and educator, will direct the reading.
