As If!: A Live Reading of Clueless

Ghostlight Ensemble presents a very special C2E2-inspired installment of its ongoing live movie reading series with As If: A Live Reading of Clueless.

So dig out your plaid skirts and knee-high socks and join us at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 25 at Carbon Arc Bar & Board (4614 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60625), located in the Davis Theater in North Center.

Clueless is a 1995 American coming-of-age romantic comedy loosely based on the Jane Austen novel Emma, about a shallow, rich and socially successful girl at the top of her Beverly Hills high school's pecking order who sees herself as a matchmaker. She takes on a "tragically unhip" new girl at school as a pet project, initiating her into the ways of the popular kids. But things backfire on her when the new girl surpasses her in popularity. Hijinks and love debacles ensue.

The cast is:
Cher: Maura Hogan
Dionne: Song Marshall
Tai: Caitlin Jackson
Elton: Nellsyn Hill
Murray: Brittney Brown
Amber/Operator: Pearl Paramadilok
Josh: Amber Autry
Mel/Miss Stoeger: Kristen Rau
Travis: Josephine Longo
Christian: Emma Jo Schumacher
Summer/Heather: Serina Johnston

The live reading is directed by Jean E. Burr.
