News   Human Race Theatre Company Offers New Musicals Weekend July 17-19
Ohio's Human Race Theatre Company's 2009 Musical Theatre Weekend, featuring The Trimble Wars and rightnextome, begins July 17.

Musical writer Greg Coffin (Convenience, Five Course Love), the writing team of Sean Michael Flowers and Patrick Vaughn, and a new collaborative theatre project from the Human Race and the Lovewell Group will showcase their work at the Dayton, OH theatre.

Human Race executive director Kevin Moore directs the staged reading of The Trimble Wars, which features music by Sean Michael Flowers and book and lyrics by Patrick Vaughn. The cast includes Scott Stoney, Aaron Vega, Patricia Linhart, Jamie Cordes, Sara Mackie, Daina Michelle Griffith, JJ Tiemeyer, Will Hutcheson, Kristen Hurley, Renee Franck-Reed, Alexandra Finke and James Roselli.

The Trimble Wars, according to press notes, is "about a soap opera where the action off camera is, well, a soap opera – complete with love, daytime drama and a wavering line between fact and fiction" (July 18 at 8 PM and July 19 at 7 PM).

Greg Coffin's rightnextome will feature Broadway actors Jim Poulos (Rent, Convenience), Stacia Fernandez (The Drowsy Chaperone, Beauty and the Beast) and Melissa Dye (Phantom of the Opera, Into the Woods).

rightnextome, according to press notes, "is a series of monologues, vignettes and scenes connected by the idea of disconnection" (July 18 at 11 AM and July 19 at 2 PM). The final offering is a full production from the Lovewell Project, which is conceived, produced and performed by area teens. Under the tutelage of the Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts, participants have learned the process of making a musical, from concept and creation to production and performance (July 17 at 8 PM; July 18 at 3 PM).

Tickets, priced $15, are available by phoning (937) 461-3823. Visit HumanRaceTheatre.
