Title: The Terris Theater Presents Ghostbrothers of Darkland County 10/21- 11/8
Post by: sharonc on January 22, 2020, 12:15:50 pm

Last Saturday, during Goodspeed's 15th annual Festival of New Musicals, the two-time Tony Award-winning theatre announced plans for a fresh approach to its new musical development at The Terris Theater in Chester, CT.  Goodspeed's
Executive Director Michael Gennaro explained, "Our new musical process at The
Terris has been redesigned and will be relaunched as 'The Worklight Series'. In
our first season, we will develop three musicals and present them to our
audience as staged readings." He continued, "Audiences will still experience
great stories and music, but since the shows will be more actively in progress,
the performances will look different - focusing not on costumes, scenery or
props -- but the musical on the page, often times with book-in-hand."

Closing out this first season will be Ghost Brothers of Darkland County which features a Book by Stephen King and Music and Lyrics by John Mellencamp (October 21 - November 8).
