On Monday November 7th, OTSP held the second in the Developmental Reading Series…
Set in the dying days of the Roman Empire, The Minervae tells the story of one mythological goddess who refuses to move over for the fashionable new “cult” of Christianity. Jilted, Minerva sets out to re-convert the converted. Standing in her way are the schemes of the other Olympians: bitter Vulcan, volatile Mars, ambitious Apollo, and the enigmatic Diana. It’s a titanic clash of faith vs. revelation, with mortal Man caught in between.
The cast featured: Rob Benson, Charles Andrew Callaghan*, Colleen Horan, Christopher Kloko, Jackie LaVanway, Brad Makarowski*, Rachel McPhee*, Marnie Schulenburg*, Lavita Shaurice* & Michael Swartz

Directed by Dev Bondarin and written by Steven Bost, The Minervae came together beautifully with only eight hours of rehearsal! The reading was a wonderful experience and we are looking forward to seeing this play thru it’s development.
It was such a pleasure for us to begin the process with Mr. Bost!
