Staged Reading of Lullaby, Thurs., May 19, 6:30 p.m. at the FHM

The Florida Holocaust Museum is pleased to present award-winning filmmaker, opera director,and Clearwater native Kimberly M. Wetherell who will direct a staged reading of her new feature-length script, Lullaby, on Thurs., May 19 at 6:30 p.m.  General admission is $9 per person; the event is free to members of the Florida Holocaust Museum.  RSVP to (727) 820-0100, ext. 236.

 
This one-of-a-kind, 'sneak peek'  into the inner workings of a developing feature film will be a multi-media event; including a staged screenplay reading, live musical performances and a short film.  It will be followed by an intimate conversation with writer/director/producer, Kimberly M. Wetherell. 
 
Lullaby is the fictional story of Tess O’Keefe, a devout Polish Catholic immigrant living on Florida’s lazy Gulf Coast.  When she is uprootedto a retirement home after her husband’s death, her granddaughter Kathleen stumbles upon a mysterious box revealing Tess’ secret past as one of the Poland’s hidden children of the Holocaust which causes her fragile tapestry of lies to unravel with excruciating, yet ultimately inspiring, consequences.
 
“I’m thrilled to be working with the Florida Holocaust Museum, Executive Director Carolyn Bass and Curator of Exhibitions and Collections Erin Blankenship on this project. It’s my honor to offer the museum’s members this preview of the production that we’re aiming to film right here in the Tampa Bay area”, says Wetherell.
 
Ms. Wetherell attended both Gibbs (PCCA) and Clearwater High Schools, and The Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago. Post-graduation, she has spent more than fifteen years traveling the world, first as an opera director and subsequently, as a film director and producer; collecting several awards for her short films.
