Producer Camilla Ross has announced that the Emerson Theater Collaborative (in the Collective Sedona, Village of Oak Creek) will present F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved classic, The Great Gatsby by Joe Landry. The playwright’s spirited adaptation developed for the stage (with a musical score by Kevin Connors) brings the iconic novel to life, with a group of local actors presenting The Great Gatsby as a live radio station broadcast, punctuated by World War II-era commercials.
Directed by Ashley Adelman and presented through special arrangement by Playscripts, this production tells the story of triumph and tragedy that reflects the decadence of the Jazz Age and the perils of the American Dream. The cast featuring residents of Sedona and the Verde Valley includes: James Yaw, Matt Egan, Jon Capozzoli, Cathy Ransom, Audrey Young, Stephen Hanks, Jordan Olquin, Joan Westmoreland, Cheryl Good Zavagno, Gabby Barbosa, Emma Genessee, Jashan Blackwell, and Chantal Harte. Videography provided by Jason Polansky and Dustin Stienstra of SEDONAUAS.
