Beowulf Alley Theatre’s April Reader’s Theatre Presentation


(April 11, 2009-Tucson, AZ) Beowulf Alley Theatre Company, 11 South 6th Avenue, Downtown Tucson, will present Warren Bodow’s Race Music, directed by Philip Bennett on Tuesday, April 14, at 7:15 p.m. Admission for the evening is on a pay what you can basis and will include audience discussion following the performance. We invite the community to participate in the playwright’s development of a new work. The cast of readers includes Paul Baker, Colten Hibbs, Amanda Ho, Erin Paradis, Gregory Sweet, and To-Ree-Nee Wolf.


A light-hearted play, RACE MUSIC is set in a metropolitan Midwestern city and deals with how race continues to affect attitudes and relationships –- in business, among friends, and in love.
