Powerhouse welcomes back its longtime collaborator, New York Stage and Film (NYSAF), who will be in residence at the Powerhouse Theater to present three workshops in July. In addition to NYSAF, Powerhouse is pleased to welcome back Christa Kimlicko Jones—actor, director and educator (and director of Powerhouse’s Hello! My Baby in 2011)—as she takes on the titular role in annA, an original stage adaptation of Anna Karenina by Matt Minnicino. New to Powerhouse is Truth Future Bachman, who will present a workshop presentation of their epic musical short Luna and the Starbodies. Powerhouse welcomes the Leah Ryan Fund’s “Leah Award” winners for a weekend of free play readings. Rounding out the Powerhouse season will be the Hudson Valley Performing Arts Lab presenting musical workshops of two of Shakespeare’s plays by composer and music director (and Powerhouse alum) Scotty Arnold, featuring a cast of Hudson Valley artists.
