The 2017-18 Concert Reading Series

Lifeline continues one of its most beloved traditions with another season of concert readings!

Monstrous Regiment: Wednesday, July 19, 2017
An Evening of Edgar Allan Poe: Tuesday, October 31, 2017
A Childís Christmas in Wales and A Christmas Memory: Saturday, December 9, 2017

What is a concert reading?
Actors will present the play reading from scripts, typically at music stands. Our concert readings are rehearsed performances with a minimal amount of movement. Occasionally, stage directions will be read if necessary for following the story. There is no scenery, but minimal sound/light/costuming effects may be incorporated.

Our returning fans liken the experience to enjoying a live radio play, with a strong focus on language and performance.

This yearís roster features ensemble member Chris Hainsworthís adaptation of Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett on July 19, an evening of Edgar Allan Poe stories and poetry on October 31, and a holiday pairing of ensemble member Jessica Wright Buhaís adaptation of A Childís Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas and a reading of A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote (read with permission of The Truman Capote Literary Trust) on December 9.

All readings will feature numerous Lifeline ensemble actors and returning favorites.

Event Schedule
Each evening begins at 6:00pm with a light supper and wine/beer (plus conversation with Lifeline ensemble, staff, and board members). At 7:00pm, the performances start. (Script times vary, but are approximately two and a half hours in length.) An intermission allows for refills of wine or water, and after the reading coffee and dessert are served.

Tickets are only $50 for Lifeline subscribers ($75 for the general public) and can only be ordered by calling the Lifeline Box Office at 773-761-4477.
