Staged Readings This Saturday at Munroe

February’s Munroe Saturday Nights performance showcases original plays in staged readings.

The following was provided by Munroe Center for the Arts.

Building on the success of the 2011-12 season opener for Munroe Saturday Nights, which featured a staged reading of Don Cohen’s “Length of Stay,” February’s Munroe Saturday Nights production will feature an evening of original one-act plays in staged readings.

The plays will be presented on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m. at the Munroe Center for the Arts, located at 1403 Massachusetts Ave., in Lexington. The program is free, with donations gratefully accepted.

The plays being featured on February’s bill are “The Living Proof Project,” by Alicia Velez, directed by the Lexington Players’ founder/producer Sal Jones; “Saving Deshawn, or the Carrot Play,” by Emily Kaye Lazzaro, directed by the Lexington Players’ Jenn Shea; “Amber Beads,” written and directed by award-winning playwright Melinda Lopez; and “DNA” by June Bowser-Barrett, directed by Sal Jones.

Following the performance, Lexington playwright Don Cohen will moderate a question-and-answer period with the audience, playwrights, directors, and actors.

Munroe Saturday Nights is a performing arts series for Lexington and the greater Boston community. Other events during the 2011-2012 season will feature Klezmer music, an evening of vocal music by talented female singers, and a staged reading of playwright Merrill Meadow’s original drama, “Purple Hearts.”

Munroe Saturday Nights performances are free to the public, but seating is limited and with donations are gratefully accepted. Parking is available in the lot at the rear of the building or on the street.
