From the Mind of Scott Charles
September 18, 2021 @ 7:00 pm$10
“From the Mind of Scott Charles.” Join us for an enthralling sneak peek into the mind of local playwright Scott Charles with an evening of two new one-act comedies produced by Placer Repertory Theater at Old St. Mary’s Chapel on Front Street in Rocklin California at 7 p.m. Saturday September 18. The evening features professional actors Matt Heyer, Will Mueller, Katie Halls and Spencer T Gayden, who bring these new comedies to life as part of the development process of Scott Charles’ plays for their world premieres in 2022.
Scott Charles’ quirky mind, filled with eccentric characters and unique situations makes for a very engaging evening of theater. The first play of the evening, “Death of a Bailsman,” may be described as a Chekhovian comedy, as humor is found even in the most fatalistic of circumstances; although it is also something of a comedic love story, in its own unique way. Meanwhile, “Radio Free Scotland,” is a comedic mystery, as the radio talk-jock, Milo Keefe and his producer, Brittany, serve up laughs while teasing audiences with the mystery of what may really be happening beyond the immediate and the obvious, by slowly peeling away the character and story layers toward a surprising reveal and an opportunity for redemption.
To bring the stage reading event to fruition, Placer Repertory Theater is grateful to have partnered with Rockstar Music Academy (TheRockstarMusicAcademy.com), who donated rehearsal space, and the Rocklin Historical Society (RocklinHistorical.org), who provided the Old St. Mary’s Chapel venue in Rocklin at a reduced rate.
“From the Mind of Scott Charles,” plays Saturday, September 18 from 7 p.m. to approximately 8:30 p.m. (with the post-show Q&A), at Old St. Mary’s Chapel, 5251 Front St, Rocklin, CA. Audiences are invited to provide feedback at the post-show Q&A, and meet the actors and playwright.
