The end of the year has Aspie Works branching into the world of radio, while also bringing back its most successful production to wrap up the year!
Aspie Works founder Justin Rielly has joined the staff of the newly-started radio station WAYO (104.3 FM), affiliated with the MuCCC. The Justin Rielly Show is an hour-long show featuring music and guests with creative personalities, and will air Sundays at 4:00pm. After training shows in November, its first public online show will air on December 6. It will debut on the 104.3 FM frequency on January 10, 2016.
After a successful stand at the Rochester Fringe Festival (and becoming Aspie Works’ highest-grossing show to date), the label will reprise Spalding Gray’s legendary monologue Swimming to Cambodia. Rielly will reprise his on-stage work of the piece about Gray’s experiences filming the 1984 Vietnam War drama The Killing Fields and his life during that era and living in New York City at that time. Swimming to Cambodia will be presented at the MuCCC (142 Atlantic Avenue, Rochester) for two nights, December 18 and 19, at 8:00pm both nights. Tickets ($8 advance, $10 door) are available at muccc.org.
And to wrap up the year, auditions will be held on December 3 and 4 at the Black Sheep Theatre in Rochester for the original project Ghost Light! The play follows a theater director in mourning over the death of an actress, who has now become the building’s resident ghost. When the director decides to give up his building, the ghost is determined to stop him. Frequent collaborator Jacqueline Moe (Love in the Style of Will) will direct, with performances scheduled for March 3-5, 2016 at the MuCCC.
