Runaways

Runaways
Written and Composed by Elizabeth Swados
Directed by Erin Gardiner, with Musical Direction by Joe Walsh, and Choreography by Ahmad Maaty

Elizabeth Swados conducted interviews and workshops with young runaways in New York City in the 1970s, most of whom were living on the streets. Their stories are brought to life in this unique presentation through a series of songs, monologues, scenes, poems, and dances, performed by the School of Theater’s Musical Theater Ensemble class.

Runaways will be presented on April 30 @8pm, May 1 @2pm or @8pm. This performance will take place on the Mason Pond Lawn (https://cfa.gmu.edu/events/outdoor-performances), just outside the Center for the Arts Concert Hall. The tickets are FREE but reservations are required. Register here: https://theater.calendar.gmu.edu/runaways. There is also FREE parking in lot K (http://transportation.gmu.edu/.../uploads/ParkingMapFX.pdf).

This ensemble is raising money for a LGBTQIA+ center in DC called Casa Ruby. To find out more about this charity or to donate, click this link: https://casaruby.org/

***CASTING CALL FOR A SHORT FILM PRODUCED AT GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY*** Title: All-Nighter Director: Chris Malone Producer: Robel Ameha Logline: A college student wakes up in a world where the laws of nature can literally be rewritten and must find a way to escape before he is trapped in the world permanently.

Video auditions must be received by Thursday, March 21st, 2019. Characters: Jay: (male/late-teens) A sophomore majoring in physics.

Having been stuck in the world for almost two months, she knows her way around the world and has become very adept at how the world works.

Police Officer: (male /late 20s-early 30s) His origins are completely unknown, nor is it known how he came into power. What is known is that he is very aggressive and takes his job very seriously. Once he sees someone he perceives as a threat, nothing can be done to stop him from catching his prey.
