King of Pizza Workshop
Last night and this morning we had the first open reading of Matt Conner, Ryan Dean, and A.K. Brink's children's musical, Martin, The King of Pizza. We had a couple of days of rehearsal to get it on it's feet.
The cast featured yours truly as Martin the King of Pizza, Kara Tameika Watkins as Patti, Priscilla Cuellar as Mozz A. Rella, Kurt Boehm as Crostini, and Lani Howe as Rosemary.
Music Direction was done by Derek Bowley.
The reading was held at The Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in Falls Church, VA. The reading was sponsored by Creative Cauldron and the Pizza was provided by Papa John's Pizza. The readings were well attended and filled with a very responsive audience. There was fantastic positive feedback from all, and I think that the readings were very helpful to the creative team. So look for more news about Martin, The King of Pizza here, and if you have not heard any music from it, you can listen to some over HERE at Matt Conner's website.
