Nora's Playhouse

See you on Facebook Live on May 13th!

Posted by in Past Events, Salon South

Warm greetings to all of our Nora’s Playhouse supporters in NYC and Montgomery!  I hope that you all have remained healthy during this strange and scary time.  

In the midst of so many challenges for performing arts organizations, we are very pleased to be able to offer you a “stage reading” online of the fascinating new play by Marianne M. Weber about Montgomery, Alabama’s own, Zelda Sayer Fitzgerald! Many thanks to Kristy Meanor and the Wetumpka Depot Players for their collaboration on this project.  We hope you enjoy the reading. Let us hear from you!

– Caroline Reddick Lawson, Artistic Director and Founder, Nora’s Playhouse


We hope you’ll join us on Facebook Live on Wednesday, May 13th at 7pm for the 2nd informal reading of Zelda! Zelda! by Prattville, Alabama’s own Marianne M. Weber. The play had its first reading on February 24 and the playwright has reworked the script based on the feedback she received. This is a unique opportunity to see a script in development come to life and provide constructive feedback for the playwright.

The boys stood outside Zelda’s bedroom window calling, “Zelda! Come out, Zelda!” Lured by the promise of romance and fun, she crawled out her bedroom window to join them. Thus began Zelda Sayre’s waltz into the world of dazzling parties and the generation’s greatest artists. She became the ultimate flapper and an exciting artist in her own right.This beautiful, talented young woman hitched her rising star to the famous F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the two lived for years in a bubble of glitz, glamour, wealth and excitement. Later, while Scott struggled to maintain his status as a successful author, Zelda struggled to maintain her sanity. Zelda! Zelda! dramatizes the life of this vivacious, talented, troubled woman who is recognized today as the face of the Jazz Age.
