News Story

Two stories of a precocious 11-year-old free spirit and a misguided teen. Pace New Musicals presents Little Miss Fix-It and Confirmed.

Pace New Musicals: Little Miss Fix-It
January 29–31, 7:30 p.m. and
 February 1, 2:00 and 7:30 p.m.
Schaeberle Studio Theatre, 41 Park Row 10th Floor
Directed by Director of Musical Theater Amy Rogers.

According to Pace New Musicals, Little Miss Fix-It "tells the story of Nan, a gloriously precocious and imaginative 11-year-old free spirit who drinks black coffee for breakfast, and tries to bend spoons with her mind. The one thing Nan fears most: disorder. With her parent's marriage crumbling, Nan dedicates herself to 'fixing' her friends problems. When Nan meets David, a 12 year-old Impressionist in the park, she is even more overwhelmed by the highly unorganized feelings that come with first love. As she tries to save her parent's marriage and the problems of everyone around her, Nan embarks on a hilarious and heartwarming journey, discovering that you can't always control what happens in life; but that sometimes great things happen when you let go, simply trust your instincts, and take a step not knowing where you're going to land."

The cast for the staged reading includes Sarah Hollands, Ethan Carlson, Katy Rea, Kevin Shotwell, Andrea Ross, Ragan Pharris, Bethany Perkins, Melanie Wildman, Claire Charland, Samantha Grossman, Hannah Grace Forsley, Jacob Pincus, Nick Zients, Spencer Clark, Jimmy Larkin, Lexi Rabadi, and Michael Hughes.

Pace New Musicals Lab: Confirmed
February 1, 11:00 a.m.
Schaeberle Studio

Confirmed “is described as a pop-rock, teen spiritual journey. When Lana, a rebellious, but misguided teen, finally goes too far with a sexy end of summer bash, she is sent to Catholic school to change her ways. While there, she will struggle to find love, redemption, and raise some hell while she’s at it! This off beat story tells of adolescents grappling to find what to believe in, who to believe in, and most importantly, how to find faith in oneself."

The Pace New Musicals program was developed in 2007 to nurture the creation of new musical theater in New York City, while at the same time providing an invaluable educational opportunity for students to work directly with top professionals in the field. The program allows students to experiment with new, untested works without precedent-setting productions–a rare opportunity in theater education.
