Virtual Play Readings

May 22, 2020
School Calendar, Theatre
Join the Charter Arts Theatre Department on Friday, May 22nd at 7pm for its virtual New Play Readings.
Professional actors from Philadelphia, NYC, LA and the Lehigh Valley will read a few of the works written by senior theatre students in Playwriting. There will be 3 featured plays (each roughly 10 minutes in length), followed by a short talkback/feedback for the benefit of the student writers.

Thanks to Dramaturge, Shaun Leisher, for working with our students and coordinating this special event. And thanks also to Mr. Cantelmi who worked with all of our senior theatre majors this year in Playwriting, encouraging their creativity and developing their skills. .

If you’d like to attend, please email Diane Wagner,, with your full name, and we’ll send you a link.


“Man, Oh Man…” written by Katherine Conlon. When a bitter children’s TV host refuses to change with the times, a young girl is selected to be his new partner. However, she’s not all sugar and spice. This play skewers both sides of the political spectrum, while looking at what lurks behind the showbiz curtain.

“Couples Therapy,” written by Rylan Foraker. Get a glimpse into the average couples therapy session hosted by leading therapist Elizabeth Gwen. Experience a spectrum of emotions as you watch three of her most interesting couples.

“Celiac Strong,” written by Alexa Rojo. A meeting of the Celiac Strong Organization gets out of hand when some overprotective mothers come to blows. The appearance of a giant bread monster is just what they need to put things into perspective.
