Rider University presents Girl’s Night Out, a work of devised Theatre based on the compositions of Contemporary Musical Theatre composer, Ryan Scott Oliver.
On Friday and Saturday, December 5th and 6th at 7:30pm, Girls’ Night Out will be performed at Rider University’s Yvonne Theater in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Admission is free.
Girl’s Night Out is a work of devised Theatre based on the compositions of Contemporary Musical Theatre composer, Ryan Scott Oliver. Each young performer has been presented a musical piece composed by Mr.Oliver that informed their character. The relationships that grow between each character have developed out of their improvisational work within the rehearsal process. The audience will follow each young person’s journey, observing each character’s discoveries that effect not only themselves, but everyone around them as well.
Directed by Rider Musical Theater Faculty Mariann Cook, with musical direction by Wendy Feaver, and choreography by Colby Dezelick, Girls’ Night Out features Maria Garvey, Samantha Ricchuti, Sarah Catherine Carter, Patricia Curley, Sarah Davis, Kailee Graham, Madeline Chandler, Leanne Gallati, Chelsea Delgado, Jessica Phipps, Katherine Tennenbaum, and Amy Hine.
