Reading Civic Theatre is excited to announce auditions for the premiere production of ANOTHER TIME, a new musical by Landon Scott Heimbach, Shannon Sheridan & Ray Rhoads.

ANOTHER TIME has been featured in readings and at a major Musical Theatre Festival in NYC. This production will be directed by a multiple theatre award winning director who has worked with and directed a multitude of theatre, film and TV stars! The authors have had many other original works performed at various theatres in NY, PA, NJ, IA.
This exciting summer musical is the perfect opportunity to work with a major NYC director and the creators of the musical in helping to shape a new Broadway-syle musical in Reading, PA!
ANOTHER TIME opens on a modern day street corner, but quickly transports our heroine, Alanna back in time. The show follows her story as she journeys to a land of witches and potions and knights and festivals on her quest to find her true love, and break the curse that took her to Another Time.
Please note – If you are unavailable to audition in April, but would like to be considered for the production, please contact Landon Scott Heimbach at LSHEIMBACH@YAHOO.COM to arrange an alternate audition time. You may also contact Landon if you have questions about the production and/or auditions.
