Industry readings of Scary Musical… The Musical! — billed as "The Rocky Horror Show" meets "High School Musical" and "Glee" — will be presented March 8 at 11 AM and 3 PM at The York Theatre.

Directed by Daniel Goldstein, the readings will feature the talents of Christy Romano, Jennifer Simard, Rashidra Scott, Blake Hammond, Jacob Hoffman and Dana Steingold.

Scary Musical… The Musical! has a book by Richard Hochberg and music and lyrics by Hochberg and Michael Paternostro. The work is described as "a bloody and hilarious new musical adventure. Set in the coastal village of Hidden Secrets, USA, the night before the opening of the Vera Miles High School production of Scary Musical, local drama and prom queen, Drew Campbell, is slashed to death after being tormented on the telephone by a sadistic musical theatre trivia freak. As the Thespian Society tries to regroup and recast their leading lady, one by one, the students and teachers are gruesomely killed off."

Kevin Spirtas and Killer In The House Productions are producing the readings in association with the York Theatre.



The York Theatre is located at 619 Lexington Ave. Industry folk interested in attending should email scarymusical@gmail.com.
