Reading for a Family

Posted: January 29th, 2013 | No Comments »

Save the date: Thursday, February 21

Our very awesome friends, Scott and Christina Harris adopted a baby girl last year. Her name is Rosie. They are one cool family.

This spring they have the rare opportunity to adopt Rosie’s biological sister. The news came as a total surprise for them. For the first addition to their family they were financially prepared for all of the outrageous adoption costs. But this time they need some extra help. Here’s where L’Enfant Terrible comes in.

Angela has written a new play and the Bootleg is going to host a staged reading benefit event to help raise some money.

The Rose Tree is set in San Francisco, 1905.  Twelve-year-old Sara has been living at Mother Mayi’s Boarding School for Girls of Quality. She hasn’t seen or heard from her father in a long time. Fearful that he might be in some trouble, Sara escapes from the boarding house and finds her way to a magical place called the Rose Tree. There she meets a group of lost girls who are each looking for their own homes and families. It’s Never Never Land, Villa Villekulla, and Sherwood Forest all rolled into one timeless place.

Won’t you come join us, Thursday, February 21?

Come see what magic Angela has cooked up. Justin will be there too, directing as usual. You might remember a few other faces from the Fun Family Festival of Tragedy. There will be a fabulous silent auction including Coach purses, breathtaking artwork, memorabilia, gift baskets, and more. And there will be complimentary savory and dessert tables. Aaaannnnnd you will be helping Rosie’s sister find her way to her new home to join Scott and Christina as they build their family. There is a $20 suggested donation at the door. You can RSVP for this event by emailing or calling 626.325.3018. The reading is suggested for ages 10 and up.
