The new musical Spin begins performances at Virginia's Signature Theatre July 9 as part of its Siglab program.

Directed by Eric Schaeffer, Spin is performed through July 27.

The musical is based on the film "Speedy Scandal." The musical features a book by Brian Hill and music and lyrics by Neil Bartram.

The cast of Spin includes Madeline Botteri (Yyonne, Studio Chorus), Holden Browne (Jesse), Carolyn Cole (Makalo), Austin Colby (Trevor), Erin Driscoll (Alison Reynolds), Lauren Du Pree (Studio Chorus), Jamie Eacker (Latrissa Washington, Studio Chorus, Dance Captain), James Gardiner (Evan Peterson), Vincent Kempski (Doctor, Cameraman, Studio Chorus), Christopher Mueller (Dylan, Waiter, Policeman, Studio Chorus), Stephen Russell Murray (Danny), Maria Rizzo (Brianna), Chris Sizemore (Dave), Bobby Smith (Richard Riddle) and Harry A. Winter (Station Manager).

"Faded pop star Evan coasts through life hosting an obscure television show and enjoying meaningless flings," press notes state. "However, when a surprise daughter and grandson arrive on his doorstep, Evan must choose between the gift of family and the glittering appeal of fame. Based on the film 'Speedy Scandal,' Spin is a humorous, charming and heartwarming tale about what really matters in life."



Spin features set design by Daniel Conway, costume design by Kathleen Geldard, lighting design by Chris Lee, sound design by Lane Elms and projections design by Rocco DiSanti.

The production stage manager is Taryn Friend and the assistant stage manager is Marne Anderson. Spin also features music direction by Gabriel Mangiante and choreography by Matthew Gardiner.

Siglab is a musical development program at Signature which gives writers the opportunity to rehearse their shows for a four-week period with a team of professional actors and designers and see their shows come to life in fully staged productions in front of an audience.
