Golden Spike 150th Anniversary

Utah’s Transcontinental Railroad 150th Celebration Commission  announced that GOLD MOUNTAIN would be presented for four performances as one of the key cultural events for the 150 year anniversary of the completion of the first transcontinental railroad. It was an honor and privilege to count among our audiences, descendants of the Chinese men who built the railroad. It was a very special week there for us. (We also had the most amazing executive producer!)

THEater ACCELERATOR

MAY 2017

GOLD MOUNTAIN was selected for this two week intensive development workshop/seminar.  It was extremely informative and Ieye-opening, an exploration of how one's writing fits into the current market and how to apply creative thinking to the business of getting your show out there, culminating in an opportunity to pitch your show to producers, makers, and industry veterans.

 

LaborFest 2016

An annual arts festival in San Francisco, centering and celebrating workers. Alan Muraoka flew out to direct an inspiring west coast cast, who performed in a black box space at the Aurora Theatre Company. We learned that a vom makes a really great tunnel.

 

ASCAP/DreamWorks

Musical Theatre Workshop

FEBRUARY 2016

This is a rite of passage for writers of musical theater, and presenting your work in front of an audience and a panel headed by Stephen Schwartz is pretty heady and intimidating. It ended up being an extremely encouraging experience, and the most traumatic part of the evening was not the panel and their critiques. It was getting lost backstage at The Wallis just after introducing the piece and the cast. The opening number was starting and I was still trying to find my way into the house!
