Staged Reading of GOLD MOUNTAIN
By Jason Ma, Directed by Alan Muraoka

SAG-AFTRA San Francisco-Northern California Local presents a staged reading of the new musical, Gold Mountain, by critically acclaimed SAG-AFTRA actor, composer and playwright Jason Ma. Gold Mountain is directed by nationally renowned director (and SAG-AFTRA member) Alan Muraoka. The reading features a cast of local SAG-AFTRA actors. Proceeds from the reading will benefit the SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

Gold Mountain is a love story set against the backdrop of a pivotal event in America’s history, the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, and celebrates the striving immigrant spirit, the redemptive power of love and the ultimate nobility of self-sacrifice. The 2016 ASCAP/DreamWorks Musical Theatre Workshop selected Gold Mountain for a performance at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills last February. The play was recently named a finalist by the East West Players (EWP) and New Musicals Inc. (NMI) for their joint initiative to develop a new musical. A reception will follow the reading.

The evening also features the traveling exhibit, The Chinese and the Iron Road: Building the Transcontinental, on loan from the Chinese Historical Society of America.
