Staged readings of Rockwell: Life on a Palette, a new musical based on Norman Rockwell’s covers for the Saturday Evening Post, will be presented Jan. 10-11, 2013, in Manhattan.

The new musical has book and lyrics by Eleanor Albano and Anthony Barnao with music by Ron Abel.

Directed by Glenn Casale, the readings will feature the talents of John Davidson, André De Shields, Kevin Earley, Sean Hankinson, Nancy Opel and Ryann Redmond.

Rockwell: Life on a Palette, according to press notes, will bring "Rockwell’s stories into a brand new arena, musical theatre. From ragtime innocence through the roaring 20s, to the tap dancing 30s, World War II big band and swing, Broadway show tunes, a rousing gospel chorus, and contemporary country, Rockwell has a score that reflects the sounds of the entire 20th century."

The staged readings will be presented by Pisces Productions with the permission of Curtis Publishing, Inc., and Norman Rockwell Licensing Company. Stage manager is Bonnie Panson, and general management is by Bespoke Theatricals.

The readings are scheduled for Jan. 10 at 4 PM and Jan. 11 at 11 AM and 4 PM. For more information and reservations, email or call (212) 221-1122, ext. 110.
