The Upside of Down
This is a concert reading of a family-friendly musical play by Y York (book/lyrics) and Amanda Jacobs (music/lyrics). It is inspired by Eleanor H. Porter's novel POLLYANNA.

In early 20th century America, a young bi-racial orphan returns to her white familys hometown after her parents die. Her enthusiastic, positive approach to life challenges her conservative aunt and the small-town citizens around her. Before it is too late, they realize how she has changed them.

The reading marks the culmination of an intensive one-week developmental workshop of the script and score.

The cast includes Allen Galli, Kpojo Kparyea, Brandon O'Neill, Chloe Rudinoff, Sarah Rudinoff, Karen Skrinde, Akal Solomon, Leah Steege, & Nathaniel Tenenbaum. The workshop is directed by Mark Lutwak. Mark Rabe is the music director and pianist. Miski Ali is stage manager.

Y York is an award-winning playwright with over 50 produced and published plays for adults, families and young people. http://yyork.com.

Amanda Jacobs is a classical and music theatre composer; her musical AUSTENS PRIDE will be produced at the Fifth Avenue Theatre this coming October. http://amanda-jacobs.blogspot.com/
