'Hit Her with the Skates: A New Musical' Reaches Milestone


Created by Christine Rea & Rick Briskin, Hit Her with the Skates: A New Musical, reached a milestone when the creators held two fully-blocked equity readings recently at Pearl Studios in New York City. The show's songs and book were debuted at the readings. Among talent pledged to the project is Corey Glover of Living Colour who has agreed to appear as a "Special Guest Artist." The show is directed by Mary Beidler Gearen and was cast by Bob Cline. The sound design is by Bruce Landon Yauger. Acting as special creative consultant is Kent Gash, founding director of NYU Tisch School of the Arts.  Set in 1977, the heartwarming story deals with an awkward adolescence of a 12-year-old girl whose life changes after a time-traveling spiritual journey. Above all, say the show's creators, Hit Her with the Skates "explores the magic and hope of finding your one true love."
