Donna Scott Productions will celebrate its 10-year anniversary with a series of theatre events designed to bring live theatre back to the Historic South End neighborhood of Charlotte in 2015.
The 1st of these events will be a staged reading of the critically acclaimed Carrie Ann’s Kiss by Charlotte playwright Tonya Bludsworth, two nights only on January 30 and 31 2015, held at the Charlotte Trolley Museum, 1507 Camden Road in Charlotte. Both shows will start at 8:00pm. A limited seating of a table of 4 including parking passes may be purchased for $100 or general admission tickets at $10 can be purchased from Carolina Tix by calling 704 372-1000 or online at Carolina Tix: http://bit.ly/1xNfGZc. A full production of the historic comedy Shiloh Rules by Doris Baizley will run March 5-14 at the Charlotte Art League on 1517 Camden Road in Charlotte. The Charlotte Art League celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2015.
“South End is already known as an edgy, art-centric neighborhood that mixes old and new very well,” said Tobe Holmes, Director of Historic South End. “These performances will complement our existing arts district in a new way that will engage our residents and encourage them to get involved in a long-standing Charlotte tradition.”
Donna Scott Productions seeks to provide creative opportunity for audiences, artists and collaborating partners to participate in unique and engaging theatre in Charlotte. For more information about the 2015 offerings please check www.donnascottproductions.com for details.
About Donna Scott Productions
Donna Scott Productions’ inaugural show, The Body Chronicles, was produced in 2005 at SPAC, the home of Barebones Theatre in South End, in partnership with Girls On the Run International. In 2005, The Body Chronicles resulted in eight sold out shows, multiple theater awards for the both the production and artistic team and a reprisal in 2006 at the McGlohon Theatre in Spirit Square. Donna Scott Productions then partnered with Theatre Charlotte to produce the locally-written Fairy Tale Chronicles in 2007-2008, The Dixie Swim Club By Hope, Wooten & Jones in 2010 and most recently Charlotte playwright Tonya Bludsworth’s Least Likely Friends, which she co-produced in 2012 with Chuck Bludsworth.
In 2010, she co-produced the short film Aphasia with the Bludsworths and writer Jim Gloster, starring Charlotte based actor Carl McIntyre. Aphasia had its premiere in NYC and LA, won multiple film festival awards and has been touring in the US and internationally since its release.
This project was made possible, in part, with funding from the Arts & Science Council.
