SCRIPT2STAGE2SCREEN PRESENTS A
NEW COMEDY, “I’M NOT RICK SPRINGFIELD,” IN MAY
Script2Stage2Screen (S2S2S), which performs staged readings of new works, will present its final 2021-22 production: “I’m not Rick Springfield!” on May 20 and 21, 2022.
Script2Stage2Screen’s Artistic Director Steve Fisher said: “This play’s story arc is driven by hero worship, mistaken identity and family dysfunction. We’re excited to have Phylicia Mason directing for the first time with Script2Stage2Screen. She is a noted actress and director very active in the Valley’s community theaters.”
Vicki Vodrey of Kansas City, Mo., is the playwright; Script2Stage2Screen has produced some of her other works, including “Breakable” and “The Exit Strategy Club,” which were nominated for awards by the Desert Theatre League.
“I want to give a shout-out to our patrons who have been wonderful this year, by attending and fully cooperating with our COVID precautions,” Fisher added.
Script2Stage2Screen (S2S2S) is the performing arts project of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Desert (UUCOD), 72425 Via Vail in Rancho Mirage. All staged readings take place at UUCOD at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10.
