Page to Stage Series to present four new plays at The Audi

From the inbox:
The Friends of the Audi are pleased to present a second season of staged readings introducing new works for the stage. The first season saw growing audience interest in this innovative program and wider acclaim for three of the new plays which went on to win prizes at the Heartland Competition, a Boston Theatre Festival, and the New Hampshire Theatre Awards. A fourth, Rebecca Rule’s CROSSCUT, was chosen by the Walker Series for a staged production.

The second Page to Stage season opened with Les Rosenthal’s GIDEON on October 4 and previewed Jim Webber’s edgy musical, JUDY’S SCARY LITTLE CHRISTMAS, at the Friends of the Audi’s December 6 Open House prior to its full production by Nashua’s Music and Drama Company. JUDY has received 15 nominations for the 2010 New Hampshire Theatre Awards! That’s just the start of the 2009-2010 schedule. Coming up next:

Sunday, January 31, 3pm – Playwright Don Tongue returns to P2S with SCENE CHANGES.
Last season Don’s P2S presentations featured two short works and actors who wowed the audience. Don’s 10 minute play, VOID, went on to Boston’s Playwrights Theatre as part of the 37th Annual Playwright’s Platform Festival of New Plays, where it won an audience choice award and a publishing contract with Heuer Publishing, Inc.

Sunday, March 14, 3pm – Playwright Eugene Shear: CROSSED HEARTS
This new romantic comedy is a sequel to THE MATCHMAKERS, Eugene Shear’s play that was produced at Players Ring in Portsmouth in 2009 and is being published by Big Dog/Norman Maine Publishing. Though a sequel, the new work can stand independently.
