The latest addition to the musical theatre workshop is a musical created by a prisoner at a medium security prison, The Party.

The Party is based on a true story about a guy in a medium security prison who started throwing a Christmas Party every year in his cell.  The DOC (Department of Corrections) frowns on this kind of thing and so there is a clandestine air to the whole thing.  The way the party grew and how people looked forward to it and the effect it had on the inmates is a story worth telling.  It became so popular that they had to start a lottery for who would get to attend.  It went on for six years before the "staff" shut it down.  And it was a real party with food, and presents and games etc.  Given that Mike is an inmate the dialogue has an amazingly "real" ring to it.  Getting this slot in SLWG musical readings has really motivated him to write and we may have most of the play by June 13th.  

Time:  Monday, June 13th, 6:30

Where: The Monocle, 4510 Manchester Ave.
