Silent Street Productions will kick off its 2011-12 season with a private staged reading of Mixtape, a new musical by Zoe Sarnak, Oct. 21.

The cast will include Kacie Sheik (Hair), Joseph Anthony Byrd (White Noise), Andrew Kober (Hair), Lilli Cooper (Spring Awakening), Tim Young (Next To Normal), Michael Lowney (La Cage aux Folles) and Laura D’Andre (Grease national tour).

Mixtape features book, music and lyrics by Sarnak. The creative team also includes director Laura Brandel and musical director Adam Wachter. Producers are Michael Alshooler, Laura Brandel, Kristen Brophy and Isaac Dayley.

Mixtape, press that state, is a series of "vignettes, the moments and songs that together shape the life of record-store owners, Thatcher and Louise. As they pack up inventory in the store’s final days, they take us through their shared story, track by track. Only as the project draws to a close, do we realize that for Louise, there is a more compelling reason behind making the mix. The greatest songs take on life and meaning beyond what the words and notes were written to convey."

Zoe Sarnak is a composer, lyricist and playwright. She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University where her first show, The Quad, was produced in 2009.
