Summary:

February 1, 1960. Inspired by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, four Black students at North Carolina A&T University sit down at the lunch counter inside of the Greensboro H.W. Woolworths, ask to purchase coffee and are refused. Day by day their movement grows, as they are joined by more A&T students, then others from Dudley High School, Bennett College and three white women from the Woman’s College (now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro). Based on the incredible events of the Civil Rights movement, this original musical short film by composer J. Quinton Johnson (Hamilton) and screenwriter Melvin Tunstall, III (Beautiful, the Carol King Musical) explores the legacy of the Greensboro Four, the importance of meaningful allyship, and the continued fight for social justice today.

This project was commissioned as part of Spartan New Musicals by the UNCG School of Theatre and Musical Theatre Program during the 2020-21 production season. Spartan New Musicals was conceived as a Covid-safe production alternative for musical theatre students, with the goal of centering writers whose voices have been marginalized in the American musical theatre.  All musical numbers were safely audio pre-recorded and filmed during April of 2021. In order to maintain a Covid-safe environment, the group scenes were filmed as a staged reading in August of 2021.

This musical short film is just the beginning of a larger development process for this original musical work. Please reach out to musicaltheatre@uncg.edu if you are interested in partnering with us on the continued development of One Week at Woolworths.

Summary:

A new musical adaptation of the Shakespeare classic!

“Named one of The New York Times’ best shows of 2017, As You Like It is an immersive dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia, escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place of transformation, where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find community and acceptance under the stars. Featuring an original folk-pop score by Shaina Taub, with a flexible-sized cast and running 90 minutes long, As You Like It is appropriate for all audiences and groups. Fall under love’s spell with this magical story!”
—Concord Theatricals

“Taub and Woolery have transformed As You Like It into a celebration of community, difference, and diversity. Right now, that is very welcome.” 
—The Daily Beast Review 

“Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery’s adaptation of As You Like It, which played at the Seattle Rep this past week as part of the theater’s Public Works program, gives the Bard a modern spin. There are gender swapped roles (male characters played by women, and vice versa). There’s a range of sexual preferences. There’s a pesky vegetarian, lecturing the local villagers on why it’s not right to eat those pretty deer. And oh yes, it’s also a musical (lyric and music by Taub).”       
—The Northwest Music Scene

“There may be no such thing as too much Shaina Taub.” —The New York Times

“Go and see this one.” The New York Times Review —NY Times Critic’s Pick and one of their best Shows of 2017!

“Taub and Woolery have transformed As You Like It into a celebration of community, difference, and diversity. Right now, that is very welcome.”

Summary:

“A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.” —MTI Shows

Peter and the Starcatcher is all about storytelling as a lively (and live) art, and the energized complicity that s forged between the teller and the listener. …The story simultaneously being told and celebrated is as elaborate, simple, cozy and scary as the best bedtime stories are.” —The New York Times

“An absurdly funny fantastical journey!” —Entertainment Weekly

Peter and the Starcatcher is a tiny show, but spectacle, wit, and joy spill out of it like treasure from a magic pocket. A cast of twelve, a couple of trunks, and a versatile length of rope yield more storytelling than most oversize spectaculars can manage. … A miniature classic.” —New York Magazine

‘Peter and the Starcatcher’ Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

“Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, SWEAT tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.”—Dramatists Play Service

“Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. “Keenly observed and often surprisingly funny—but ultimately heartbreaking—the work traces the roots of a tragedy with both forensic psychological detail and embracing compassion. Ms. Nottage…is writing at the peak of her powers…” —NY Times

 “…passionate and necessary…a masterful depiction of the forces that divide and conquer us…SWEAT communicates its points with minimal fuss and maximum grit. Along with the rage, despair and violence, there’s humor and abundant humanity…a cautionary tale of what happens when you don’t know how to resist.” —Time Out NY

“Sharp and threatening as a box cutter blade…ferociously engrossing…SWEAT never feels less than authentic—and crucial.” —Deadline.com.
